Fourth fight

A hot-headed dude sliced another guy on the arm and hand with a sharp object after a verbal dispute on Feb. 15.

The victim told cops that he started arguing with an unknown twenty-something at around 1 am between Fourth and Fifth avenues. The perp then pulled out a bladed tool and starting swinging at the victim, cutting him on his forearm, tricep and finger.

Flat broke

A clever thief stole more than $7,000 from a car stopped at 92nd Street on Feb. 16 after telling the ride’s owner he would fix his flat tire.

The victim told cops that he was at a red light between Battery Avenue and Parrott Place at around 3:45 pm when the unknown perp approached his car and told him that his rear tire was flat.

The victim got out of the car while the perp pretended to change the tire. The thief then sneaked inside the car, found $7,440 under the seat and fled.

Construx creep

A handy man stole six power tools and copper from a 96th Street construction site overnight on Feb. 15.

Cops say that the perp snuck onto the site, which is between Third and Fourth avenues, sometime after 7 pm to swipe a drill, screw gun and other tools.

Jewel thief

A thief broke into a Fort Hamilton Parkway house on Feb. 14 to steal pricey rings, a chain and a bracelet.

The victim told cops that he was at work at around 1 pm when he received a call from his alarm company that his front door may have been tampered with. When the victim arrived home, which is between 94th and 95th streets, he saw that his door was forced open and that his jewelry was gone.
