Physco ex-boyfriend

A fiend broke his ex-girlfriend’s hand and threatened to kill her on Ocean Parkway on April 16.

The brute approached his former lover between Avenues W and X just after midnight and slammed her against a fence so hard that he broke her hand, according to a police report.

The lowlife threatened to kill the woman and her family and smashed her phone when she tried to dial 911, the victim told police.

Protective parents

A woman and her boyfriend beat the tar out of her daughter’s ex-boyfriend at W. 11th Street on April 19.

The victim was walking between Avenues W and X when he was stopped by his ex-girlfriend’s mother and her partner at 6:30 pm, who warned him to stay away from her daughter and threatened him, authorities said. The pair began beating the man, punching and kicking him several times, according to a police report.

The woman’s boyfriend then pulled out a knife and slashed the victim’s hand, officials said.

Purse snatcher

Two cads shoved a woman to the ground and snatched her purse at the intersection of W. Third Street and W. Brighton Avenue on April 19.

The woman told police she was walking on W. Brighton Avenue at 2 pm when she was suddenly slammed into the ground, cracking a tooth and scraping her forehead.

The thieves grabbed the pocketbook and booked it out of there, said police.

Whipping boy

Police arrested a man who they say whipped another man in the face with a belt after he demanded cash on Mermaid Avenue on April 20.

The victim was between W. 28th and W. 29th streets at 8:30 pm when the suspect approached and demanded $10, according to a police report.

When the victim refused, he was struck in the face with the belt as the man again demanded he cough up the cash, authorities said.
