Park Slope

Punch drunk

A woman slapped a 27-year-old Bronx straphanger passing through Grand Army Plaza on July 17.

The victim told police he was arguing with the 47-year-old woman on a Bronx-bound 5 train near Flatbush Avenue at 12:01 am, when she smacked him.

Officers, who noted the woman was drunk, escorted her to Methodist Hospital for intoxication following the incident, while the victim refused medical attention, according to police.

Pissed off

A man waved a knife around and urinated inside a Park Place coffee shop on July 12.

A witness told police the whacko barged into the coffee franchise between Seventh and Flatbush avenues at 1:50 pm, and immediately began whizzing on the floor and cursing.

After relieving himself, the man drew a knife and started giving customers a hard time, cops said.

The case was closed without any arrests, according to police.

Creep of the week

Cops are hunting a man suspected of masturbating in front of a 17-year-old girl in front of her Sixth Avenue home on July 20.

The victim told police the man was watching her and touching himself on the sidewalk outside of her home between First and Second streets at 1:35 am.

When she fled back inside of her home, the man climbed the stairs leading to her front door and continued masturbating, according to police.

The ordeal lasted for about five minutes, before the man fled, cops said.

Rockin’ out

A menace holding a rock scared a man in Prospect Park on July 19.

The 55-year-old victim told police he was on the park’s East Drive at 2:20 pm when he turned around to see the other man standing behind him with a rock in his hands.

“You good,” the stranger said, before suddenly fleeing through the park, according to police.


A woman punched a man — twice — following a car accident on Fourth Avenue on July 21.

The victim, 28, told police he and the 37-year-old woman collided between Degraw and Sackett streets at 9:35 pm, and that afterwards she socked him twice in the chin.

The case was closed without any arrests, according to police.

Bad break

A man was busted for breaking a woman’s phone on Fifth Avenue on July 22.

The victim, 51, told police that she was near Carroll Street at 6 pm when the suspect grabbed her phone, hurled it into a car, and then onto a roof.

The man was arrested that day on criminal mischief charges, cops said.

Slug her

A 34-year-old woman was arrested for slugging another woman three times on Fifth Avenue on July 22.

The victim told police she was near Carroll Street at 6 pm when the woman punched her three times.

The suspect was arrested later that day on assault charges, cops said.

Beat back

Police responded to a radio call of a man was beating a woman on Flatbush Avenue on July 23, but found the alleged victim “uncooperat­ive” at the scene, cops said.

The officers were called to the incident between Sterling and Park places at 12:32 am, and found a woman matching the description of the victim with a nasty gash under her left eye, alongside a man.

But the woman, who police noted was “uncooperat­ive” in their report, told police that she’d injured herself and the suspect was a stranger, who hadn’t attacked her, cops said.

The woman refused medical attention, and the case was closed, cops said.
