The big apple

A 17-year-old boy was arrested for hurling an apple at another child’s head, and then beating him inside the John Dewey High School cafeteria on Avenue X on Dec. 3.

The victim told police that he was snacking inside the lunchroom of the school between W. 11th and W. 12th streets at 11:32 am when the suspect suddenly chucked the fruit at his head, dazing the victim.

Another perp then struck the victim with an unknown object and sent him crashing to the linoleum, where the suspect and his unapprehended cohort slapped and kicked the victim repeatedly, police reported.


Police arrested a 27-year-old suspect who they say beat a man on Brighton 12th Street on Dec. 4.

The victim told police that he was between Brighton Beach and Oceanview avenues at 4:20 am when the suspect served him a knuckle sandwich to the face.

Sucked punched

A 32-year-old suspect was arrested for beating a man inside a Brighton Beach Avenue apartment building on Dec. 1.

The victim told police he was between Brighton First Street and Brighton First Place at 10:15 pm when the suspect sucker punched him and then slugged him in the gut.
