Police: Woman slugged another lady with a combination lock

78th Precinct

Park Slope


Cops arrested a woman who they say beat another gal with a combination lock on Eighth Avenue on May 20.

The victim old police she was between 14th and 15th streets at 8:30 am when the suspect conked her with the combo lock on her face.

Police cuffed the suspect later that day, charging her with assault, cops said.

Unhealthy work environment

A health worker was arrested for allegedly stealing her employer’s credit card from his Prospect Park West home on May 15.

The victim told police that the suspect, who was responsible for taking care of his mother at their home between Seventh and Eighth streets, put more than a dozen illicit charges — some up to $450 — on his card.

Fortunately, only one $60 purchase was approved, according to police, who said the woman was busted on May 18 on grand larceny charges.

Scooter capers

Three scooters were stolen in the precinct this week. Here’s the rundown:

• Some thief puttered off with a man’s scooter he parked on 11th Street on May 14.

The victim told police he left his 2005 Vespa between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 7 pm, and returned the following day to find an empty spot where his low-powered motorbike had been.

• Another jerk took off with a woman’s scooter parked on First Street on May 14, only to dump it halfway down the block.

The victim told police she left her ride between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 8:30 pm, and returned the following day to find some crook had moved it down the block, and that the bike was damaged, and unable to start.

• And finally, yet one more Vespa parked on President Street was nabbed on May 10.

The victim told police he left his scooter between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 5 pm, and returned four days later to find the 2009 Bravo-model two-wheeler stolen.

The cases were closed without any arrests, cops said.


A thief drove off with a man’s 2001 Nissan Maxima that he left running on Ninth Street on May 14.

The victim told police he parked his car unlocked, with his keys in the ignition, between Third and Fourth avenues at 1:42 pm, and returned just a minute later to discover his sedan was stolen.

Low battery

Some two-bit perp stole the battery from a woman’s car on Sixth Avenue on May 13.

The victim told police she parked her car between Sterling and St. Johns places at 11 pm, and returned three days later to find her doors open and battery stolen.
