Slash attack

A bad guy with a blade slashed a 22-year-old across the face as he exited a Graham Avenue store early on April 19.

The vicious villain cut the victim at around 12:40 am near the corner of Johnson Avenue, leaving the wounded passerby with a laceration that required treatment at Kings County Hospital.

Cell snatched

Three thugs mugged a deaf teenager and stole his cellphone on April 17.

The crooks grabbed the 15-year-old’s T-Mobile Sidekick from his hand as he walked down Graham Avenue between Johnson and Montrose avenues at around 1:30 pm. Cops locked up one suspect, but the victim, who communicates in sign language, was not able to identify the detainee as an attacker and the arrest was voided.

Change is coming

Burglars burst through the back door of a South Fifth Street apartment late on April 17 and took everything they could carry — including $100 of loose change.

The thieves pushed their way into the apartment between 5:30 pm and 12:30 am the next morning. Once inside the residence, which is between Bedford and Driggs avenues, the thieves grabbed two Apple laptops, a camera, a checkbook, and the valuable change.

Not passed over

Burglars snatched cash from a Penn Street home on April 18 while the 61-year-old resident was at synagogue.

The crooks broke in between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm and heisted $1,000 before fleeing from the apartment, which is between Wythe and Bedford avenues.

Oh doctor

Crooks stole two laptops from a South Second Street apartment on April 17 — while the resident was at a doctor’s appointment.

The thieves ransacked the apartment, which is between Havemeyer Street and Marcy Avenue between 11:30 am and 2:30 pm.
