Cops are investigating a young woman’s claim that she was sexually assaulted during a visit to a friend’s house.
The 17-year-old said that she went to her male friend’s home on Leonard Street back on January 31.
The two were reportedly watching television in her friend’s father’s room that afternoon when the male suspect grabbed a rope and bound her hands.
He then ripped the woman’s clothes off and attacked her, the woman claimed, adding that she as too scared to scream.
The teen fled the home after the attack, said police. She did not report the incident, however, until February 11.
Steamed over bump
A packed M train played host to a verbal exchange that led to a 33-year-old woman getting doused with a cup of coffee.
The woman told police that she had gotten onto the train near the corner of Broadway and Marcy Avenue at 8:30 a.m. on February 12 but couldn’t get around a younger woman chatting with a friend.
She tried to pass, saying excuse me three or four times, but the young girl never responded, she told the cops. She then decided to slip by, bumping the young woman’s messenger bag.
The girl reportedly whirled around and confronted the 33-year-old, calling her a “fat bitch,” officials said.
When the victim returned with a rebuttal, the young woman chucked the cup of coffee at her, leaving her with some light injuries, cops were told.
A 39-year-old man’s Valentine’s Day was ruined because of a trip to the bathroom.
The victim told police that he was inside an eatery on Graham Avenue between Montrose Avenue and Meserole Street at 1:10 p.m. February 14 when he needed to use the facilities.
A thief made off with a leather coat he mistakenly left outside the bathroom as he did his business.
But we’re guessing that he wasn’t worried about the $700 coat, or the pack of cigarettes and tax refund check he had left in his pockets.
Also secreted in the pocket was $1650 engagement ring he was obviously planning to give to one lucky lady, officials said.
Valentine’s Day whip
A man was whipped with a belt as he made his way home from a neighborhood club last week, police said.
Cops were told that the 21-year-old victim was walking along Marcy Avenue between South 5th Street and Broadway at 3:40 a.m. on February 14 when 22-year-old Gabriel Flores and 21-year-old Roger Lopez allegedly jumped him.
The suspects reportedly whipped him with a belt, leaving him with cuts to his face.
As paramedics treated the victim at the scene, cops rounded up Flores and Lopez, charging them with assault.
A Porter Avenue man had to have his jaw wired shut following an attack over what may be construed as loose lips.
The victim told police that he was inside his home between Johnson Avenue and Ingraham Street at 10 p.m. on February 12 when a roommate attacked him, punching him repeatedly in the jaw.
The victim, who was reportedly drunk at the time, said that he didn’t know why he was being attacked.
Yet his attacker made his motives known as he screamed “You got my homeboys against me.”
When cops arrived at the scene, his roommate had run already off.
Paramedics took the victim to an area hospital for treatment.
Close, but no cell
A 13-year-old girl got into a struggle with a cell phone snatcher as she walked past the corner of Walton Street and Harrison Avenue last week.
The child told police that she pulled her phone at to make a call as she neared the corner on the morning of February 11 when the stranger approached, demanding that she hand over the phone.
The two fought over the phone for a few moments before the thief ran off empty handed, cops were told.
Over $500 in X-Box games was among the loot taken from a Montrose Avenue apartment last week.
A 29-year-old man told police that he left his home near Humboldt Street at 10 a.m. on February 11.
When he returned later that afternoon, his X-Box games, as well as a laptop computer, were missing.
Police believe that the thief entered the apartment through a closed but unlocked window that led out to a fire escape.
Cops are trying to find the cold-hearted thief who made off with a $30,000 refrigeration trailer.
Workers from Zhong Zhong Trading said that someone wheeled off with the pricey item as it was parked on Randolph Street between Varick and Stewart avenues.
It’s believed that the theft took place between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on February 11.
Two pint-size thieves — the oldest 14, the youngest 12 — were in custody last week after robbing a 40-year-old woman at the Lorimer Street station.
The woman told police that she had entered the station just before 11 a.m. on February 12 when the two suspects jumped her taking her purse and a black bag.
The little looters ran out of the station, but didn’t get far. Cops apprehended both suspects after a short search, recovering the property in the process.
