78th Precinct

Park Slope

Bad vibrations

A creep swiped some kinky toys from an apartment on 14th Street on Feb. 25.

The 22-year-old victim told cops she moved some belongings out of her home near Third Avenue at 10:45 pm, then went elsewhere to sleep. She came back the next day at 3 pm for some items she hadn’t moved, and discovered a white metal trunk — full of $300 worth of sex toys — and a laptop were gone.

Neighbors later told her that they spotted the front door ajar.

Pickup line

A knife-wielding thug beat up a man on Fourth Ave on Feb. 26.

The 24-year-old victim told cops he was near Ninth Street at 2:40 pm when a man wearing a blue hooded jacket walked up and asked, “Do I know you from somewhere?”

The jerk then punched the poor guy in the face and slashed his left hand with a knife.

Dirty soap

Two thieves snatched some laundry detergent from a bodega on St. Marks Place on Feb. 22, police say.

A worker at Slope Natural Foods near Fifth Avenue told cops he was making sandwiches at 2:05 pm when he spotted two men stealing boxes of Tide. The sandwich maker then confronted the guys — but one of them fired back, “Do you wanna see my gun?” and ran away, according to cops.

Police arrested two suspects at the Bergen Street subway station a couple blocks away.

Rider rage

A knife-toting jerk slashed a man on Flatbush Avenue on Feb. 20.

The 28-year-old victim told cops that he was talking on a cellphone next to the Grand Army Plaza subway station at 8:05 pm when he got into a dispute with an angry man wearing a gray jacket. The madman then allegedly punched the straphanger in the head three times, choked him, and sliced his hand with a knife.

Sign, steal, deliver

A thief stole a wallet from a woman at a post office on Ninth Street on Feb. 21.

The 34-year-old victim told cops she hung her purse on the back of a stroller while mailing a package between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 11 am. She stepped away from the stroller for a few minutes, only to discover that her purse — and the brown Gucci wallet inside — were gone.

Window sneak

A thief snatched some jewelry from an apartment on Carroll Street on Feb. 23.

The 24-year-old-victim told cops that she left her home near Seventh Avenue at 8:15 am, then came back at 9:30 pm. That’s when she discovered two Mac computers and a jewelry box were gone. A window near the fire escape had been left ajar, she said.

Van plan

A crook stole a van on Second Avenue on Feb. 23.

The 29-year-old victim told cops that he parked a silver Dodge Grand Caravan near Ninth Street at 1 pm, then came back about eight hours later. That was enough time for the thief to steal the $2,000 ride — leaving no sign of broken glass.
