Shorty wars

A violent thug slashed a 35-year-old man’s neck with a razor during an argument over a girl in a Roebling Street bodega on April 5, said cops.

The victim told police that the jerk, known in the neighborhood as “GMan,” approached him in the store at 8:05 pm and said, “Oh, you’re the man that started on my shorty.”

GMan allegedly swung at the victim with a razor in his fist and slashed his left cheek, jawbone, and wrist.

He then ran down S. Second Street and paramedics took the victim to Bellevue Hospital, cops said.

Three stooges

Three thieves jumped three women and stole their cash on Havemeyer Street on March 28.

One victim, 37, told police she was with her sister and daughter near S. First Street at 6:30 pm when the thugs approached and accused them of having a pocketbook that belonged to one of their sisters.

“F--- that, let’s get this over with,” threatened the group’s ringleader, while the other answered, “F--- her up,” and grabbed the purse, which contained $780.

They then fled, leaving their victims shaken.

Grand scare

A burglar attacked a woman inside her Grand Street apartment on April 4.

The victim told police she was alseep inside her apartment between Maujer Street and Graham Avenue at 12:15 pm when she was woken by the intruder entering her bedroom through her window. He approached her and she fled her apartment.

But the thief, wielding a screwdriver, followed her down the hallway to the first floor of the building. He caught her, struck her in the face, and said, “Go back to your apartment!”

He shoved her some more and then ran out the front door, while the victim went back to her apartment.

But a few minutes later, the burglar returned and climbed onto the roof, police who looked at the building’s surveillance video said. Thirty minutes later, he climbed down the roof and rang the woman’s doorbell. When she didn’t answer, he climbed back up onto the roof, down the fire escape, and back into the woman’s apartment for the second time!

Headache

A thug struck a man with an unknown object on Roebling Street on April 1.

The victim told police he was near S. Fourth Street at 7:47 am when the jerk walked up behind him, hit him in the head, got in a car, and drove away.

Opening day

A violent baseball fan swung a bat at a man on Hooper Street on April 1.

A thug allegedly punched a man in the face and threw a pallet board at him on Meserole Street on April 4.

A gun-toting robber stole a man’s iPad on S. Second Street on April 6.
