Jeep shot

Cops arrested a teen accused of swiping a Jeep from a 12th Street parking garage sometime between May 25 and 28, a report said.

The owner dropped his 2011 Jeep Cherokee at the parking garage between Seventh and Eighth avenues on May 25, but when he returned to claim it on May 28, the vehicle had vanished, police said.

Cops collared an 18-year-old man and charged him with stealing the car, according to a report.

Sweeping up crime

Police intervened after an argument between two women at an Eighth Avenue women’s shelter on May 30 turned violent, arresting one woman for assault, according to a report.

The neighbors got into a verbal spat at the shelter between 14th and 15th streets shortly after 6 pm, and after exchanging words one woman allegedly smacked the other with a broomstick, causing pain to the victim’s left arm, a report said.

Police arrested the alleged attacker, a 43-year-old woman, and charged her with assault.

Moving pains

A brigand sped off with a stolen bicycle as the bike’s owner was unloading a moving van on Fifth Avenue on May 25, cops said.

The victim was moving items into an apartment building between Second and Third streets and left the Bianchi Impulso in the building lobby shortly after 5 pm, cops said.

When he returned at about 5:40 pm, the malcontent had made off with the bike and more than $900 in parts, according to a report.
