Subway slimeball

Some goon attacked a woman while she was waiting for a subway train at Lafayette Avenue on Nov. 7, police said. The woman told police she was waiting on the Church Avenue-bound G train platform near Classon Avenue when the ruffian stomped on her thigh, pulled her hair, and struck her in the face with a bag at about 5:15 pm, according to authorities.

Cashed out

A good-for-nothing swiped cash and a music player from a DeKalb Avenue bar on Nov. 6, police said. An employee at the nightclub near Clermont Avenue told police he locked it up at little after midnight, but about four hours later, some lout smashed the window to break in. The punk ran off with $250 in cash from the register and a music player, according to authorities.

Rock-ing out

A nogoodnik broke into an Adelphi Street eatery and stole two music players on Nov. 7, police said. A restaurant employee told police that he spotted shattered glass on the floor and checked the video footage, which showed the malefactor hurl a rock at the window of the restaurant between Willoughby and Myrtle avenues and then break in. The punk swiped two iPods worth a total of $350, according to authorities.

He see-zed them!

A filcher stole several pairs of pricey eyeglasses from a guy’s Willoughby Avenue apartment sometime between Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, police said. The homeowner told police he had been out of his home near Grand Avenue for those two days while contractors were doing work, and when he returned on Nov. 2, realized the sneak had removed his Louis Vuitton, MCM, Fendi, and Tom Ford eyewear from his dining room table, worth a total of $2,447, according to authorities.


A jerk swiped a guy’s bicycle parked on Fulton Street on Nov. 10, police said. The guy told police he had left his pricey Orrow bike chained up on the street near Hanson Place at about 8:30 pm but some nogoodnik rode off with it, according to authorities.

Purloined wheels

A scofflaw stole a woman’s moped that she had parked on Clinton Avenue while she was out of town for a few days starting on Nov. 8, police said. The woman parked her black Honda Ruckus between the Brooklyn Queens Expressway and Myrtle Avenue, and when she went to go get it on Nov. 10, it was gone, according to authorities.
