78th Precinct

Park Slope

Scoot and loot

Some jerk rode off with a Chinese-food delivery guy’s scooter, after the victim left it running outside a Park Place apartment building on Feb. 19.

The delivery guy told police he left his moped purring outside the property between Flatbush and Sixth avenues at 7:30 pm, and returned on the heels of a timely drop off to find the rest of his orders were going to be late.

Rhetorical violence

Cops arrested a man who allegedly crushed another man with his car on Fifth Street on Feb. 23.

The victim told police he engaged in a shouting match with the suspect near Seventh Avenue at 9:53 am, before things took a violent turn as the suspect ran him down with his Dodge.

Paramedics were called to the scene, and the victim was rushed to Methodist Hospital with substantial injuries, cops said.

Garden of evil

A thief made off with a woman’s bike after she left it locked up on Flatbush Avenue as she explored the Brooklyn Botanical Garden on Feb. 19.

The victim parked her two-wheeler in a rack outside the gardens at 2:15 pm, and later returned to find some scoundrel had snipped her lock and made off with her wheels.

Calling home

Three teen delinquents ran off with a woman’s phone after she let one of the weasels borrow it to “call his mother” on East Drive on Feb. 20.

The victim told cops she was near West Drive at 6 pm when the punk and his pals walked up and sweetly asked to borrow her cell.

But when she handed the rascals her iPhone 5 they went running for the hills, cops said.
