Scissor hands

Police arrested a man who they say whipped out a pair of scissors and threatened to harm another man with them, causing him to fear for his safety, inside a Fort Hamilton Parkway home on April 28.

The threat occurred at the residence between 88th and 90th streets at around 5:15 am, police reported.

From lost to stolen

A thief charged more than $1,000 to a man’s debit card after he lost it and his wallet while walking on Shore Road at some point before April 20, the man told police.

The victim reported the theft to police around 4:45 pm on April 20, adding that he lost the items while he was walking near 92nd Street. Soon after, he received a call from his bank informing him that someone had charged $900 to his card via the Apple store online, plus $150 on shoes and $40 on car services, according to the report.

Texting trouble

Cops cuffed a man for texting while driving on 63rd Street on April 23, who they say also had two active warrants and a switchblade on him.

Officers say they saw the man texting and driving a 2016 gray Honda Odyssey between 10th and 11th streets around 4:45 pm. When they approached him, they discovered the active warrants and blade, according to the report.

Hiding in plain sight

Police arrested a man who they say had a knife clipped to his pants pocket in plain view on 86th Street on April 25.

Cops spotted the man at Fourth Avenue just after 2:15 pm, when they arrested him, according to authorities.

Pipe down

Police arrested a man who allegedly threatened another man with a metal pipe, causing him to fear for his safety and his life, during a heated road rage fight on 10th Avenue on April 26.

The incident occurred between 76th and 77th streets just after 5:45 pm, and officers arrested him at the scene soon after, officials reported.

Pedal to the metal

A bike-riding lout rode up behind a woman on 65th Street on April 26 and stole her cellphone.

The woman was walking between Eighth and Ninth avenues at around 10:30 pm when the perp rode up behind her, grabbed her phone, and took off towards Fort Hamilton Parkway, police said.

Cashed out

A pack of punks assaulted a man on Fourth Avenue on April 28 and stole more than $300 from him.

The group of baddies confronted the man at 84th Street around 2 am, when they grabbed the cash and then fled on 83rd Street towards Fifth Avenue in a blue Jeep, according to the report.
