88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Starting from scratch

Some punk stole two phones from a guy who scratched his car while cycling on Willoughby Street on Aug. 26, investigators said.

The victim told police he was riding on Ashland Place at 2:20 pm when he scuffed the weasel’s vehicle. The angered motorist then grabbed him by the shirt, shook him, and pulled him towards him, snarling, “What do you have on you? What’s in your pockets?” The thief went into his left pocket, took two phones, and fled, police said.

Toilet trauma

Cops are searching for three baddies who robbed a 63-year-old man at knifepoint at the Crispus Attucks Park bathroom on Fulton Street on Aug. 26.

The man was in the bathroom near Classon Avenue at 6:30 pm when the jerks hissed, “Shut the f--- up and take off your chains,” he told authorities. He then handed over his pricey gold necklace and bracelet.

Knife mystery

A man was stabbed on Monument Walk on Aug. 27, but he had no idea he was injured or who had hurt him, police reported.

The victim said he was walking by Park Avenue at 2:16 am when someone alerted him there was blood on his shirt. He realized his stomach had been stabbed, but didn’t know when the injury had occurred, he told cops.

Shot in the dark

Some sneak shot a guy on Clermont Avenue on Aug. 27, cops said.

The victim was walking down Myrtle Avenue at 2:10 am when he heard a loud bang and felt a sharp pain in his rear end, he told police. He realized he had been shot but didn’t see who did it, but thought the bruiser might have driven away in a sport utility vehicle. He was taken to Methodist Hospital for treatment of a wound that was not life-threatening.

Heavy metal

Cops cuffed a guy who threw a metal trash can at a woman on Myrtle Avenue on Aug. 27.

The suspect picked up the garbage bin over his head and threw it at the woman near Carlton Avenue at 2:35 am, according to a police report. The blow struck the victim in her left shin and caused her to fall, authorities said.
