Scoundrel slugs restaurant worker after being asked to leave

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Food fight

Some goon slugged a worker at a Flatbush Avenue chain restaurant on March 11.

The victim informed police that the 20-year-old tough guy started giving him trouble after being asked to leave the restaurant near Atlantic Avenue through the main entrance, but he insisted on using a side door, and the dispute turned ugly when the scoundrel socked him once in the face at 10:50 pm.

The ruffian fled following the assault, and police came up short of nabbing the perp following a search of the area, cops said.

Paramedics, meanwhile, provided treatment for the worker’s wounded kisser at the scene, according to police.

New car

A patrolman nabbed an alleged car thief after spotting the 16-year-old suspect cruising along Third Avenue in a stolen car on March 14.

The arresting officer said he was near Warren Street at 9:44 am when he ran the suspect’s plates, which were reported stolen.

After pulling over the vehicle, the officer found a 16-year-old girl sitting in the driver’s seat, cops said.

The girl proved a fighter, and did her best to resist arrest by pulling on the patrolman’s arms, but the cop ultimately brought the girl into custody, and she was charged with criminal possession of stolen property, according to police.

What a knife lady

Cops busted a 64-year-old woman who they say slashed a man on Prospect Place on March 15.

The victim told police he heard a loud bang on the front door of his home between Clinton and Vanderbilt avenues, and opened the door the find the older woman standing there wielding a silver knife.

The woman slashed the man once on his forearm, according to police, who cuffed the suspect soon after on assault charge.

Emergency workers took the victim to Brooklyn Hospital, where he was treated for the wound, according to police.
