78th Precinct

Park Slope

Slap happy

A woman slapped another lady around on Eighth Avenue on July 25.

The victim told authorities that she was between 14th and 15th streets at 10:26 am when she began arguing with a stranger. The squabble escalated to fisticuffs when the suspect allegedly started throwing vicious slaps, before hurling the victim into a locker and leaving her with a nasty bump on her head, cops said.

The suspect fled following the attack, and the victim refused to press charges, despite filling cops in on details about the crime, police said.

Bike bandit

A thief stole a man’s bike from outside a Seventh Avenue grocery store while he was inside perusing the aisles on July 29.

The victim told police he locked his ride up outside the market near Carroll Street at 6:23 pm, and stepped away to go shopping for food. A scant five minutes later, he returned to a broken lock and a missing bike, cops said.

Lock and flee

A crook jacked a woman’s bicycle after she left it chained outside an Atlantic Avenue store on July 30.

The victim secured her ride outside the shopping center between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue at 12:15 pm, and returned later to find the chain had been broken and her two-wheeler stolen, cops said.

Bad credit

Police cuffed a 20-year-old man for allegedly using a woman’s credit card number to fund an illicit shopping spree on June 1.

The victim told police her bank account showed two unauthorized withdrawals at 3:50 am, despite her credit card still being in her possession.

Whack attack

Cops cuffed a man for allegedly going berserk and destroying a glass door at an Atlantic Avenue shopping center on July 30.

A rep for the mall told police that the suspect was in the building between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue when he went wild and started kicking the glass door. The suspect caused around $900 worth of damage before his tirade ended, cops said.
