Hair-pulling bandit

A 27-year-old woman was arrested for beating and robbing a woman on Brighton Third Street on March 15, taking the victim’s cellphone and cash.

The victim told police that she was near Neptune Avenue at 10:15 pm when the suspect and an accomplice slugged her in the face, pulled her hair, threw her to the ground, and then stomped and kicked her.

The suspect and her partner then looted the victim’s pockets, taking the cellphone and cash, before fleeing with their ill-begotten goods, cops said.


Police arrested a 36-year-old man who they say attacked another man on Shell Road on March 18.

The victim told police that he was between Avenue Z and the Belt Parkway at 8:30 am when the suspect bashed him in the chest with his forearm.

Broomstick brute

A 40-year-old man was arrested for attacking a man with a broomstick on Ocean Parkway on March 1.

The victim told police that he was between West Brighton and Neptune avenues at 7 pm when the suspect kicked him in the face then bashed him in the head with the broomstick.
