A little fishy

Cops arrested a man for stealing fish from an Atlantic Avenue grocery store on Sept. 3.

A market rep told police that the suspect was inside business between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue at 3:30 pm when he allegedly attempted to carry a small-feast’s worth of seafood past the clerk.

What a boob

Cops cuffed a man who they say lifted clothes and a television from a Flatbush Avenue chain store on Sept. 2.

A store rep told police that someone at the emporium between Hanson Place and Atlantic Avenue spotted the suspect boosting a pair of jeans, three shirts, and the boob tube at 4:45 pm.

Officers stopped the man after breezing past the register carrying the ill-gotten merchandise, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief took off with a teen’s bike that was locked inside the gated area of Second Street building on Sept. 4.

The victim locked his ride past the gate between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 5 pm, and returned the next day to find it — and his lock — missing, police said.

Whack and jam

Cops busted a 21-year-old man for striking a teen and then throwing a hissy fit that snarled traffic on Atlantic Avenue on Aug. 31.

A patrolmen reported spotting the suspect in the middle of Atlantic Avenue where it meets Flatbush Avenue — one of Brooklyn’s busiest intersections — at 5:19 pm, where he was blocking vehicles and attracting a crowd.

When asked to take his sideshow antics to the sidewalk, the suspect refused, before suddenly attacking the cop, according to police.

After a brief struggle, cops placed the man under arrest, after which an investigation revealed that he had punched a 16-year-old boy in the face before drawing the officer’s attention, cops said.

Purse snatcher

Police slapped a man in irons after they say he stole a woman’s purse from inside a Sackett Street nightclub on Sept. 4.

The victim told cops that she had stashed her purse underneath a bar inside the watering hole between Third and Fourth avenues at 3:40 am, but she found it missing after checking on it a few moments later.

Cops collared the 23-year-old suspect after investigators discovered surveillance footage showing him grabbing the lady’s bag, according to police.

The victim also told police that a credit card stolen along with the purse was used three times following its theft.

Crack head

Police cuffed a guy for allegedly cracking a beer bottle over another man’s head in Prospect Park on Sept. 2.

The victim told police that he’d been arguing with the suspect over a pair of broken glasses at 12:50 am when, as he was walking into the park near Lincoln Road and East Drive, the man attacked him from behind.

The suspect struck the victim directly on top of his head, opening up a nasty gash that sent him to Kingsbrook Hospital in an ambulance, cops said.
