A brutal driver stabbed a man on Myrtle Avenue on June 22.

The victim was driving near Flatbush Avenue Extension at 8:54 pm when the thug cut him off. The men got out of their vehicles and began to fight — and the irate driver pulled a sharp object.

Police say the victim was stabbed on his left side and suffered multiple lacerations to his left arm. The perp fled.

Swiper no swiping

An agile intruder attempted to burgle a Pierrepont Street apartment on June 20 — but left empty-handed after the victim woke up and saw him.

Police say the climbed the fire escape of the building between Henry and Hicks streets at 11:40 pm and entered a fourth-floor apartment. The would-be victim woke up and screamed at the man, telling him to leave.

The scaredy-cat fled the apartment without taking anything.

Green thief

A money-grubbing thief stole $1,400 from a Bridge Street apartment sometime between June 10 and 13.

The victim told police the thief had access to the apartment between York and Prospect streets while he was out from June 10 at 11 pm and June 13 at 10 am, and knew where the money was kept. He said that she did not deny stealing the money when he confronted her about it.

Bus bandit

A pick-pocket swiped a woman’s wallet as she got off the B23 on Jay street on June 22.

The woman told police she felt the man brush up against her as as she exited the bus near Fulton Street at 2 pm. She realized her billfold was missing when she transferred to the B62 at the same stop.

The wallet contained debit, social security, and Medicaid cards and a birth certificate.


Two men violently stole a pedestrian’s iPhone on Jay Street on June 21.

The thieves approached the victim at the corner of York Street at 7:30 am and tried to pry the phone from his hands.

When the victim reacted, one man punched the left side of his head and fled with his cohort in the direction of the Farragut Housing Projects.
