Bloody ride

Cops cuffed two suspects for assaulting a guy on a Euclid Avenue-bound C train near the Fulton Street station on Nov. 18. The 42-year-old victim told police he hopped on the train near Greene Avenue at about 5 pm when he got into a fight with one of the suspects who punched him in the eye. The suspect also stabbed the victim twice in the stomach with a folding knife as the second suspect looked on, slapped the victim in the face, and scratched him with her fingernails, according to authorities.

Caught red handed

Cops cuffed a guy for breaking into a Carlton Avenue apartment on Nov. 15.

The 21-year-old suspect forced open the window near Flushing Avenue a little after midnight, according to authorities. Police caught him and found a plastic bag filled with marijuana in his pocket, officials said.

What a tool

A prowler broke into a guy’s truck parked on Clermont Avenue and stole a bunch of tools, according to authorities. The pilferer broke the lock on the vehicle parked between Willoughby and Myrtle avenues at about 9:15 am and swiped hammers, monkey wrenches, a set of nuts, channel locks, and a pump worth a total of $400, officials said.

Breaking and entering

A nogoodnik broke into a guy’s work truck parked on Carlton Avenue on Nov. 18, police said. The guy told police he was working inside a nearby building near Myrtle Avenue when the punks broke the lock on the van and fled with a dewalt saw and drills worth $679, according to authorities.

Jewel thief

A bandit broke into a woman’s Saint James Place apartment and swiped thousands in her jewelry, officials said.

The woman told police some looter broke into her apartment between Dekalb and Lafayette avenues and stole a white stone necklace, metal chain, and a white pendant key chain worth a total of $7,500, according to authorities.
