78th Precinct

Park Slope

Three way

Three men were arrested for brawling with each other inside a Nevins Street parking lot on Oct. 15.

The suspects were involved in a shouting match inside the lot between Union and Carroll streets at 6 am, which turned violent after the men began beating each other with metal pipes and baseball bats, cops said.

Following the fracas, the cops arrived and arrested everybody, and charged all three men with assault, according to police.

Focused on crime

A thief drove off with a woman’s Ford Focus she parked on St. Johns Place on Oct. 1.

The victim told police she left her 2013 four-door near 67 St. Johns Place at 12:10 am, and returned later in that night to discover her ride had been stolen.

Bag man

Cops arrested an 18-year-old man for his part in a Union Street purse snatching on Oct. 15.

The victim told police she was near Grand Army Plaza at 2 am, when the suspect and an accomplice ran up and grabbed her purse, along with her expensive iPhone, before fleeing.

Patrolmen picked up their suspect later that day, but the woman was unable to identify the man as one of the thieves, cops said.


A two-bit crook stole a package contain pots and pans from the lobby of a Prospect Park West apartment building on Oct. 10.

The victim told police the package arrived at his home between 13th and 14th streets sometime between midnight and 2 pm on Oct. 11, but by the time he got to it the parcel had been ripped open and his pans were gone.

Swing and a miss

Cops arrested a man for allegedly threatening a pedestrian on Flatbush Avenue on Oct. 13.

The victim told police he was near Atlantic Avenue at 11:30 pm, when the suspect accosted him and, raising up his fists, started swinging.

But the man’s blows fell short of connecting, and police cuffed him that day on menacing charges, cops said.
