78th Precinct

Park Slope


Some brute slugged a man on Sixth Avenue on July 22.

The victim told police he was near 11th Street at 11:15 pm, when the fiend waltzed up and nailed with him with a sucker punch.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.


A thief rode off with a man’s Solano-brand bicycle he chained up on Hanson Place on July 23.

The victim told police he locked his bike near St. Felix Street before ducking into a nearby chain store at 7:20 pm, and returned about 20 minutes later to find his bike stolen.

Suede boot blues

A man was arrested for stealing a pair of suede boots from a Sixth Avenue home on July 24.

The victim complained to police that the suspect took the boots from his home between Park and Sterling places at 3:40 pm, and patrolmen spotted him later that day on Fifth Avenue near Prospect Place, cops said.

As officers moved in to cuff the suspect, the man flailed his arms and tried to escape, according to police, who nonetheless managed to bust the alleged thief.

Wrong tool

Some jerk smashed up a man’s car on Seventh Avenue on July 25.

The victim told police he had just parked his 2001 GM sedan between Fourth and Fifth streets at 2 pm, when the crook waltzed up with a tool he used to bust up the man’s car to the tune of $517 in damages.

Bad fare

Cops busted a man after he allegedly went ballistic on a cab driver on Fourth Avenue on July 26.

The victim told police he had picked the suspect up in Manhattan and dropped him off near Sixth Street at 6 am, when the man refused to fork over the $24 he owed for fare.

A dispute broke out between the cabbie and his passenger, who suddenly punched the driver in the back of his head, before leaping out of the cab and attempting to drag the hapless chauffeur from his vehicle, cops said.

The suspect attempted to flee the area following his alleged assault, but was stopped by police before he could escape, cops said.
