Park Slope

Medical emergency

Cops arrested a man who they say attacked a nurse inside a Sixth Street hospital on Jan. 11.

The victim told police she was trying to enter a surgery room inside the healthcare center between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 1:29 am, but the suspect refused to let her enter, and at one point hurled her into a door.

The suspect later fled the hospital, but cops caught up with them a few blocks away and booked him for assault, according to police.


Cops slapped irons on a 49-year-old man for leaving an older fellow with a black eye on 12th Street on Jan. 10.

The 68-year-old victim was at home between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 6:55 pm, where he was arguing with the suspect, who suddenly socked him, cops said.

Cops picked up the suspect later that day, but are unsure what his relation is to the older man, a document shows.

Bad apple

A Park Slope man threw a tantrum inside his mom’s Butler Street home on Jan. 10 after she refused to give him cash.

The 62-year-old lady was inside her house between Gregory Place and Fourth Avenue at 11:10 am when her 23-year-old son — and roommate — told her she “needed” to give him money so he could “turn it into millions,” cops said.

When the woman refused, her offspring started throwing things and yelling at her, while following her around demanding cash, according to police.

The man’s outburst didn’t cause any physical harm, cops said, and the case was closed without arrest.

Beamer bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s BMW motorcycle after he left it parked on Carroll Street on Jan. 13.

The victim left his German import near Polhemus Place at 9:15 am, and returned a few days later to find the pricey bike missing, authorities said.
