Police: Teen tried to buy headphones with counterfeit cash

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Beat it

Cops busted a 17-year-old kid accused of buying headphones with counterfeit cash at an Atlantic Avenue electronics store on June 30.

An employee told police he caught the suspect trying to purchase Beat headphones with bogus Benjamins at the store near Flatbush Avenue at 5 pm.

Police cuffed the kid that day, charging him with criminal possession of a forged instrument, cops said.

Punch drunk

Some brute slugged a drunken man on Fifth Avenue on June 30.

The victim told police he was between Berkeley Place and Union Street at 12:35 am, when the goon socked him good, opening up a nasty gash over his left eye.

When police arrived on the scene, they found the victim drunk and uncooperative — refusing to share his phone number with investigators — and he was taken to Methodist Hospital for treatment, cops said.

No arrest has been made, and the case has been closed, according to police.

Headliner

Cops arrested a man for allegedly stealing a newspaper from an 84-year-old woman inside a Flatbush Avenue drug store on June 25.

The victim told police she was inside the pharmacy between Prospect Place and Seventh Avenue at 12:45 pm, when the 33-year-old suspect snatched the $2 paper from her hand.

Police cuffed the man that day, charging him with grand larceny, cops said.

Eye for crime

Some crook nabbed several vials of eye drops from a Flatbush Avenue drug store on June 2.

An employee told police he spotted the suspect prowling the aisles of the store between Prospect Place and Seventh Avenue at 2:15 am, seemingly looking for a good opportunity to nab some loot.

Sure enough, the man grabbed seven vials of eye drops and stuffed them in his dress shirt before slinking past the register and fleeing into a nearby subway station.

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