Masked madman

A creep wearing a black mask threatened a man with a handgun on Ridge Boulevard on Aug. 25.

The victim told police he was near Bay Ridge Parkway around 1:30 pm, when he noticed a heavily tinted car parked at the corner, police said, adding that when he got into his own car and drove by the tinted one, the marauder rolled down the driver’s-side window and pointed the pistol at the victim. The goon then fled towards the Brooklyn Queen Expressway, police said.

Stole his phone back

Four baddies beat a man and tried to steal his phone on Fifth Avenue on Aug. 20.

The assault began around 6 pm between 72nd and 73rd streets, where the four men cut the man off in traffic, got out of their cars, and began punching him. One of the crooks then grabbed the man’s phone from his cup holder, but the man managed to take it back after chasing the punk back to his car, police said.

The perps fled down Fifth Avenue and on to 73rd Street towards Fourth Avenue in a dark-blue Mercedes sedan, according to the report.


A pair of punks cut a man with a knife and stole his pills and iPhone 7 on 90th Street on Aug. 23.

The man was riding in a taxi near Dahlgren Place around 3:20 am, when he asked the driver to stop, and hopped out to speak to the pair of louts before they assaulted him, police reported.

Double assault

Police arrested and charged a man with third-degree assault after he allegedly punched a woman in the face and bit her hand on Third Avenue on Aug. 25.

The alleged assault occurred at 92nd Street around 5 pm, police said.

Lip service

Cops cuffed a woman who they say struck a man in the mouth — allegedly causing a small laceration to his upper lip — on Fourth Avenue on Aug. 25.

The two were near 95th Street around 6 am when the woman punched the man, cutting his lip, according to the report. Police charged the woman with third-degree assault, according to authorities.
