78th Precinct

Park Slope

Fowl play

Cops are looking for a brute who beat a man in the bathroom of a Flatbush Avenue chicken joint on Dec. 27.

The 31-year-old victim got into an argument with the bruiser in the loo of the eatery near Atlantic Avenue at 11:27 pm, when the jerk socked him on one side of the face, and then again on the other, according to a police report.

The restaurant has no surveillance footage of the attack, police said.

Smack attack

Cops arrested a 20-year-old woman after she smacked another gal inside a Third Avenue apartment building on Dec. 30.

The 30-year-old victim told police she was in a hallway in the building between Baltic and Wyckoff streets shortly after midnight when the younger woman clocked her with a knuckle sandwich.

Straphanger scuffle

A dispute between straphangers turned violent on a Flatbush Avenue-bound 2 train on Dec. 28, landing one man in jail.

A 28-year-old man told police he’d exchanged words with the suspect aboard the train before disembarking at Atlantic Terminal at 4:35 pm, when the guy allegedly suddenly socked him in the face.

After collaring the suspect, cops discovered a warrant out for his arrest, according to police.

Bottle opener

Authorities collared an 18-year old man who they say cracked a glass bottle open on another man’s face within a Third Avenue apartment building on Dec. 29.

The 25-year-old victim told police he was arguing with the suspect inside the building between Baltic and Wyckoff streets at 11:20 pm when the suspect allegedly smashed the bottle on his head.

The blow caused a nasty gash and the victim went to Methodist Hospital for treatment, cops said.

Bagel bandits

Officers arrested a man and woman on Dec. 26 who they say had been ripping off the Seventh Avenue bagel shop where they worked since Dec. 12.

The owner of the business between President and Carroll streets told cops his employees colluded with each other to syphon $1,437 from his coffers.

Checked out

Cops have called off the search for the man wanted for busting up a bathroom door inside a Third Avenue hotel sometime after Dec. 20

An employee told police that the suspect checked into his suite between Douglass and Butler streets at 2:25 am that day, but it wasn’t until he checked out four days later that a maid discovered the $1,000 door smashed.

No arrests have been made, and cops have closed the case, according to police.
