78th Precinct

Park Slope

Bad ticket

A belligerent beast tried — and failed — to spit on a parking enforcement officer amid a juvenile tirade on 12th Street on Oct. 7.

The officer reported that he was slinging tickets near Seventh Avenue at 1:35 pm when the irate man began hurling insults his way.

But that wasn’t all the victim had coming — the enraged assailant discharged a virulent lugy in his direction, although, whether by swift action on the officer’s part, or the spitter’s poor aim, it failed to connect, cops said.

Swell job

A savage whack job attacked a woman as she sat waiting for a bus near Grand Army Plaza on Oct. 7, beating her so severely that her eye swelled shut.

The victim told police she was lounging at the bus stop near Eastern Parkway at 10:15 am when the menace stomped up to her and started swinging.

The brute clocked her three times in the face, cops said.

Hot spot

An indigent man threatened a motorist’s life over the matter of a parking spot on St. Johns Place on Oct. 4.

The victim told police that he was attempting to park his car between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 6:15 pm when the irate nut ran over to claim the spot as his own and threatened to shoot the victim if he didn’t scram.

The victim’s assailant is a known homeless man, although it remains unclear if he owns a car, or a gun for that matter, cops said.

Pedal pushers

Thieves absconded with two bikes within the 78th Precinct on Oct. 1

• The first theft occurred on Fifth Avenue after 4 am, when a victim chained his bike between Garfield Place and Carroll Street, only to return a few hours later to find it stolen.

• Later that day, another victim secured his bike to a rack near Eastern Parkway at 3 pm, and returned a few days later to an empty spot.
