Punch love

A nameless goon attacked a man and woman outside their Park Place apartment building on Aug. 4, slugging them each in the face.

The victims told police they were between Caton and Vanderbilt avenues at 4:35 am when the fiend caught each of them with a sucker punch.

The victims called for help, at which point the attacker fled, cops said.


Cops have given up the hunt for the man who trailed a 15-year-old girl for a block along Sixth Avenue on July 30.

The victim told police she was near 13th Street at 9:55 pm when the suspect began following her, telling her she was beautiful along the way and inviting her into his car.

No divide

A man was arrested for allegedly beating down a urinal divider inside the Atlantic Terminal train station on Aug. 6.

Police say the man was kicked out of the train station near Flatbush Avenue earlier that day and returned at around 6:15 pm, when he walked into the men’s bathroom and obliterated a privacy wall there.

The 37-year-old man was arrested that day on criminal mischief charges, according to police.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bike he locked to a fence on Third Street at Aug. 4.

The victim told police he chained his bike up between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 10 pm, and returned the following day to find his Trek-brand two-wheeler missing.


Some jerk stole a roof rack off a man’s car on Prospect Place at 5:45 pm.

The victim told police he parked his car between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at 5:45 pm, and returned the following day to find his rack stolen.
