Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bruiser turned loser

Police arrested a man who they say punched another man in the face and struck his arm, causing minor bruising and lacerations, on Third Avenue on July 22.

The victim told police he was near Bay Ridge Parkway around 3 am when the suspect attacked him after a verbal dispute. Cops then cuffed the suspect, who police said also had a small quantity of marijuana.

Riding dirty

Police arrested a man for allegedly stealing a woman’s white Nissan Altima parked on 77th Street on July 17.

A witness told police that she saw the suspect pulling on door handles of cars parked on the street, between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue, around 8:50 am, when he opened the door of the car and drove off. Police arrested the man the next day, according to the report.

Gate out of here!

A bozo broke into a woman’s driveway via the gate at her Narrows Avenue home on July 19.

The woman told police she went to close the gate of the property at 82nd Street at around 10:45 pm, when she spotted the intruder in the driveway.

Fast and furious

Police arrested a man who allegedly struck another man in the face in a Bay Ridge Avenue brawl on July 20.

The victim told police that he first got in a car accident with the man between Sixth and Seventh avenues around 9:50 pm, which quickly escalated to the physical altercation that left the victim with bruising, redness, and lacerations, according to police.

Emergency medical personnel transported the man to Lutheran Medical Center, police said.

Jack gas

A thief broke into an 80th Street home on July 21 and stole three gas meters, according to police.

The homeowner said the perp broke into the home between Fifth and Sixth avenues through either the basement or roof sometime before noon.
