62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Dive bar

Police arrested a man for ambushing another man in a New Utrecht Avenue bar’s bathroom on May 18 and slicing his arm open with a broken bottle.

The manager of the watering hole between 72nd and 73rd streets told police that he was in the restroom washing his hands at 1:45 am when a man approached him from behind. The man then lunged at the manager with a bottle in hand, and slashed his left arm, according to officials.

Emergency responders took the victim to Lutheran Medical Center, said police.

Knife to meet you

A baddie slashed a woman with a pocket knife on 23rd Avenue on May 19.

The victim told police that the woman was between Bath and Cropsey avenues at 2 pm when the malefactor approached with the blade, then suddenly sliced her across the left hand.

The victim called police but refused medical attention when the cavalry arrived, said officials.

Sketchy landlord

A landlord and his buddies crept into a woman’s Bay 22nd Street apartment on May 19 and swiped her wallet.

The woman told police that she rents a room on the first floor of an apartment between Cropsey Avenue and 19th Lane. She stepped outside for a smoke at 6:30 pm, leaving her door unlocked. While she was having a smoke she spotted her landlord and two of his friends go into the house, police said.

Moments later the landlord left, and when the woman checked her bag she left in her pad, she discovered her wallet lush with cash and bank cards was gone, according to a police report.

Bad deal

A crooked mugged a pre-teen on 16th Avenue on May 20.

The victim told police that he was meeting a man between 79th and 80th streets to “trade bags” at 1 pm, according to a police report. But the youngster was punched in the face and his bookbag swiped by his supposed friend, authorities said.
