Who dunnit?

A patron of a Fifth Avenue bar broke its front window on Feb. 26 after getting into a fight with the bartender just a few moments before an unknown scoundrel — and possibly the same person — fired shots outside.

Cops say the villain smashed the window at the watering hole between 80th and 81st streets just before 3:15 am. The villain fled on foot in an unknown direction, police said. Officers also responded to reports of four shots fired at the location, but they did not know if they were from the same person, because the perps reportedly fled in a car on Fifth Avenue going towards 79th Street, according to officials.

Got him from behind

A pair of louts attacked a man from behind as he was on his way to the subway on 63rd Street on March 1, before grabbing his wallet, money, and phone.

The victim told police he was near 11th Avenue at 2:30 am when masked miscreants came up from behind and struck his left ear, causing pain and a laceration. Cops say the goons then stole his belongings from his pocket before fleeing on 11th Avenue towards 64th Street.

Road rage

Police arrested a driver who they say smashed another driver’s side mirror before threatening her with a metal bat in a bout of road rage on Third Avenue on March 2.

The pair were at 88th Street at 6:20 pm when they got into an argument about merging into traffic. The man smashed her mirror, and then grabbed the bat from his car, police say.
