78th Precinct

Park Slope


Cops busted a man for driving drunk after he allegedly fled the scene of a Park Place collision on April 9.

The arresting officer reported he was two blocks away from the accident near Vanderbilt Avenue at 6:30 pm, when two men flagged him down and claimed they were rear-ended by the suspect, who then took off on foot.

The two men were following the suspect when they spotted the patrolmen, and flagged him down, cops said.

Upon detaining the suspect, the officer found he reeked of booze and tests later revealed he had a blood-alcohol content of .197, more than twice the legal limit, according to police.

Import export

A thief drove off with a woman’s Toyota four-door she parked on Second Street on April 5.

The victim told police that she left her Japanese import between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 3:30 pm, and returned the following day to find a completely different car in place of her gray sedan.

April fools

Cops busted a 37-year-old man who they say stole packages containing women’s clothing from a Sixth Avenue apartment building on April 1.

The victim told police she lives at the property between 14th and 15th streets, where numerous deliveries of kimonos and skirts she was expecting were snatched from the lobby.

The woman went to the building’s superintendent, who turned over surveillance footage showing the suspect grabbing the victim’s stuff at 1:30 pm that day, cops said.

Feel the beat

Two men were arrested for allegedly beating a man on Carroll Street on April 4.

The victim told police he was between Nevins Street and Third Avenue at 4:30 pm when one of the suspects socked him in the face, opening up a gash over his left eye.

Andrew Jacked

Some con ripped off a Fifth Avenue market on April 6, buying eggs with a fake $20.

An employee told police he was working behind the counter of the quickie mart between 13th and 14th streets at 6:30 pm, when the man purchased a carton of eggs with the bogus bill, and he handed over a fistful of actual cash in change.

Poor shelter

Some creep attacked a woman without warning inside a Ninth Avenue homeless shelter on April 8.

The victim told police she was about to wash some dishes inside the refuge between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 9 am, when the suspect suddenly grabbed her and hurled her across the room seemingly without reason.
