78th Precinct

Park Slope

Child’s play

Cops arrested a 14-year-old girl for allegedly beating up another girl on Fifth Avenue on Sept. 26.

The victim, 13, told police she was arguing with the suspect between Fourth and Fifth streets at 4:12 pm, and recalls the older girl shouting, “b—-, I’m going to f— you up.”

The girl then socked her once in the face, causing her to tumble to the ground, where she suffered some cuts and bruises, cops said.

Cops arrested the suspect that day, charging her with misdemeanor assault, cops said.

Bodega breakdown

Police cuffed a man who they say went berserk inside a Fifth Avenue bodega after workers refused to sell him a loose cigarette on Sept. 29.

The victim told police he was working the counter at the store between Bergen Street and St. Marks Place at 12:30 am, when the 24-year-old suspect demanded a loosie, and then started throwing merchandise after he was denied.

At one point, the suspect allegedly hurled a shelf into the worker, leaving him with a bloodied nose, according to police, who arrested the man that day on misdemeanor assault charges.


A thief drove off with a man’s ’98 Honda CRV he left on President Street on Sept. 26.

The victim told police he parked his four-door between Third Avenue and Nevins Streets at 7 pm, and returned three days later to find his ride stolen.

No arrests have been made, and the case has been closed, cops said.

Bike bandit

Some crook rode off with a woman’s bike she parked outside her Plheums Place home on Sept. 23.

The victim told police the suspect literally sawed through a gas lantern on the front yard to get to her bike between Garfield Place and Carroll Street at 9 pm.

No arrests have been made, and the case has been closed, cops said.

Sock suspect

Cops busted a man for allegedly stealing hundreds of dollars worth of socks from a Flatbush Avenue department store on Sept. 24.

An employee told police he spotted the suspect stuffing Polo socks into a bag at the big-box retailer near Atlantic Avenue at 5:56 pm, before attempting to slink past the register with his ill-gotten foot underwear.

Police busted him that day, charging him with petit larceny, cops said.
