Attention shoppers

A razor-blade-wielding shoplifter sliced and diced a Pathmark employee on Jan. 25.

The victim, who works on Fort Greene Place between Atlantic Avenue and Hanson Place, told cops that he was trying to stop the hungry shopper around 10 am when his assailant chopped his face with the blade.

The perp escaped empty handed.

More Target trouble

A scandalous squad shoplifted over $1,000 worth of electronics from the Target at the Atlantic Terminal Mall in a stealing spree that allegedly started on Dec. 18.

Officer Richard Gong put an end to the thievery on Jan. 26, cuffing the trio at noon.


Portable entertainment fans beware! All sorts of gadgets were swiped last week. Here’s a round-up:

• Two Hulk Hogan wannabes put their victim in a chokehold and threw him to the ground before nabbing his iPhone and wallet on Jan. 25. The victim told cops that the two men followed him into the Lafayette Street subway station at Fulton street and S. Portland Avenue at around 10 pm.

• A pushy thug snatched a woman’s back pack on Lafayette Avenue near Waverly Avenue on Jan. 24. The victim said that the perp shoved her and got away with her iPod Nano at 9:40 pm.

• A treacherous tribunal stole a 12-year-old’s iPod in the subway at Flatbush Avenue and Hanson Place on Jan. 26. The victim said that one member of a five-man team asked him for the time at around 4:40 pm. When the boy pulled out his iPod to check, another perp grabbed the device before all five disappeared. One of the villains reappeared, this time waving a knife in the boy’s face, and said, “You’re dead! You’re dead!”

• Three iPod hungry thieves surrounded six people at a bus stop on Flushing Avenue and Navy Street and demanded they hand over their iPods and cash on Jan. 28 — but all three were later collared, cops said. The victims told police that the perps showed up at 4 pm and promptly started rifling people’s pockets before fleeing with the goods.Officer Noah Molina promptly made the arrest later that day.

Footwear warfare

A enraged woman walloped another customer with her shoe at the H&R Block branch at the corner of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 26 — but was later arrested.

Witnesses said that the shoe-slinging perp lost her cool at around 4:15 pm.

Officer Mark Beharry came through with the arrest, though few details were provided about what caused the fight.

Cell challenge

A thief nabbed a 13-year old boy’s T-Mobile Sidekick at the corner of Clinton and Greene avenues on Jan. 25.

The victim told cops that a stranger approached and asked him for the time. He pulled out the phone and told the perp what was on the screen, but the villain demanded to see the time for himself. When the owner tried to take it back, the stranger asked, “You want to fight?”

The victim did not.


A sneaky sneaker collector stole 15 pairs of kicks from the Discount Shoe Warehouse on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 30 — but he didn’t put much mileage on them before he was arrested.

A security guard at the shoe store reported that the perp nabbed over $1,000 worth of footwear at around 5 pm.

Officer Eric Luk made the arrest that day.
