Scarface: Tshe Prequel

An argument over a minor auto crash became a scene out of a slasher flick on Cropsey Avenue on Feb. 9, according to cops.

The victim said he and another motorist got into a fender-bender at the intersection of 16th Avenue at 8:45 pm, and an argument between the two broke out.

The more enraged of the two men drew a pocketknife and flayed open the victim’s face, before jumping back in his Jeep and fleeing, the victim told cops.

Bottled violence

A brute bashed a man upside the head with a glass bottle on Avenue U on Feb. 4, police reported.

The victim said he was walking between W. Sixth and W. Seventh streets at 5:30 am when the villain cracked him on the left ear with the container.

Domestic violence

A lowlife held up a man with a kitchen knife on Cropsey Avenue on Feb. 10, authorities said.

The victim told cops he was near Bay 34th Street on his way home home at 12:15 am when the perp came up with the household utensil and demanded he surrender the contents of his pockets.

The victim gave up his phone and wallet, and the blade-wielding fiend fled, cops said.

Protect ya neck

Two villains choked and robbed a man on 86th Street on Feb. 8, police reported.

The victim said he was near 21st Avenue, walking home at 1 am, when one of the lowlifes grabbed him by the throat from behind, while the other raided his pockets and removed $300 in cash and his Guatemalan passport.

The first goon then shoved the victim to the ground and the two scrammed, according to cops.

Craigslist creep

An internet swindler scammed a 22-year-old 65th Street woman out of thousands with the promise of a job on Feb. 8, cops said.

The victim said she applied for a position listed on the website Craigslist from her home on between 15th and 16th avenues and got a call from the schemer that she had gotten the job. The con man sent her two checks for $6,291.87, and told her to deposit them in her personal account and write and deliver checks to three of his vendors, she said.

The victim complied, and signed three checks totalling $4,799.10 and personally gave them to the supposed employees — only to get a call at 2 pm on Feb. 8 from a bank stating that the checks she had received were fraudulent and she was out the four grand in dough, police reported.
