Yet another bar fight broke out in Bay Ridge last week — in this case, a 23-year-old man was stabbed three times at a Fourth Avenue watering hole on Nov. 30.

This time trouble began while the victim was standing in front of the popular bar, which is located near 90th Street. Shortly after 3 am, he got into an argument with a stranger that quickly turned violent, according to cops.

Police say that’s when the thug pulled out a box cutter and stabbed the victim once in the chest, back, and left shoulder before fleeing on foot.

The victim was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Bars and nightclubs are under increased scrutiny from local officials since there has been an increase in drunken violence over the past 16 months — including at least nine stabbings.

Bars are on notice that they could lose their liquor license, police told Community Board 10 this month.

Gang violence

A 17-year-old boy told cops he was standing on the corner of Third Avenue and 76th Street on Nov. 27 when a familiar gang attacked him.

Cops say the crime went down at 11 pm, when the victim was approached by the three gang members, who were wearing black and blue bandanas. The trio ordered the teen to hand over his bag, which contained an iPod. He promptly followed orders.

“Because you did nothing crazy, we are not going to hit you in the face,” one of the considerate creeps said.

The boy identified the perps to cops by their street names, “Payaso,” “Chou,” and “Clony.”

D’oh! Nuts!

Talk about a Bad Samaritan!

A 36-year-old woman left her pocket book behind at a Fourth Avenue Dunkin’ Donuts at around 11:30 am and returned minutes to later to discover that someone had grabbed it on Dec. 2.

Security cameras at the donut shop, which is near 87th Street, caught the opportunistic thief running off with the purse, which contained $300.

Lady mugged

Chivalry really is dead.

At least it is in the case of one 29-year-old woman who was walking in front of her Bay Ridge Avenue apartment building on Nov. 26 at around 3:10 pm. That’s when a man came from behind, pushed her to the ground, and stole her purse before fleeing on foot.

The Grinch got $150, two gold bracelets valued at $200, and a spot on Santa’s naughty list.

The victim told cops that she had intended to use the money to buy Christmas presents.

Lady mugged

An elderly woman was mugged on 84th Street near Third Avenue on Nov. 27.

The 78-year-old victim was on her way home after doing some shopping shortly around 9 pm when she was knocked to the ground from behind by a cruel hearted perp.

The thug grabbed her purse, and the $30 inside, before running away.
