78th Precinct

Park Slope

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a woman’s bicycle she parked on Fifth Avenue on July 2.

The victim told police she locked her bike to a rack between 11th and 12th streets at 2:45 pm, and returned 15 minutes later to find her ride stolen.

Scratch that

Cops are hunting a 33-year-old woman wanted for attacking a man inside a Third Avenue residential building on July 1.

The victim told police he was arguing with the suspect in the building between Wyckoff and Baltic streets at 6:13 pm when the woman went ballistic, and began scratching and kicking him.

Broken window theory

Some jerk broke a window of a 74-year-old woman’s Fourth Street home on June 30.

The victim told police she was watching television at her apartment between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 3 pm, when a large crack sounded in the room and she discovered a small hole in her window.

The woman was unable to find the object that was hurled through her window, cops said.


A goon threw a rock through an old lady’s 2002 Lexus window on First Street on July 5.

The victim, 79, told police she was sleeping at 8 am when the baddie hurled a rock through the window of her car parked between Seventh and Eighth avenues, shattering it.

Sharp words

Cops busted a man for allegedly threatening to kill a 23-year-old woman and her daughter inside a Wyckoff Street residential complex on July 7.

The victim told police she was arguing with the suspect in the building between Nevins Street and Third Avenue at 3:30 pm when the suspect grabbed a knife and said he would slit her and her daughter’s throats.

The suspect, who is mentally ill, was arrested two days later, cops said.
