Scalpel-wielding scoundrel takes woman’s cellphone

60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Nip and took

A screwball with a scalpel robbed a woman of her cellphone on Brighton First Street on June 10.

The woman was between Brighton First Place and Brighton First Court in Brighton Beach at 10:55 pm when the weirdo whipped out the surgical tool and said he’d slash her face of she didn’t hand over her mobile, police said. The guy took the cell and ran, a police report states.

Raising Cain

A 44-year-old Seagate man hit his older brother in the head with a cooking pot in a Seagate Avenue residence on June 9, cops said.

The two were embroiled in an argument in a house between Lyme and Neptune avenues at 5:35 pm when the younger man bore fists against his brother, police said.


A rake wracked a guy with a metal rack in a Neptune Avenue shop on June 10.

The attacker came into the shop between W. 36th and W. 37th streets in Coney Island to use his public benefit card at 9 am, but there was an error with the card, so he got mad and whacked the clerk in the head, police said.

The goon came back at 10:40 am with a gun in his waistband, so the clerk called the cops and the guy ran, a police report states.

Bullet barrage

Someone fired shots on W. 33rd Street on June 16 — hitting two Coney Islanders with stray bullets.

Both victims were taken to Lutheran Medical Center in stable condition, officials said.
