Bar brawl

Some punks beat a man outside a Garfield Place watering hole on Nov. 10.

The victim told cops he was outside the bar near Fourth Avenue at 5:49 pm, when the fiends socked him the face. But when members of New York’s Finest arrived, the victim did not cooperate, refusing to describe the perps and to press charges, according to police, who have since closed the case.

Drunk in love

Police busted a man for driving drunk on Flatbush Avenue after he was spotted engaging in a “lewd act” with his passenger on Nov. 11.

A patrolman spotted the suspect engaging in the inappropriate act behind the wheel of his 2007 Nissan between Prospect Place and Seventh Avenue at 12:15 am, according to a report.

The office stopped the man and gave him a Breathalyzer test, which recorded his blood-alcohol content as .095, cops said.

Shutter snatch

A thief stole a man’s camera he ordered via Ebay after it was delivered to his Seventh Street apartment on Nov. 2, authorities said.

The man told police a delivery person dropped off the package at his home between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 6 pm, and that some goon stole it before he returned to collect the parcel containing the camera a few hours later.

Pedal pilfer

Some crook rode off with a man’s $730 bike he chained up on Fourth Street on Nov. 7.

The victim told officials he locked his bike to a pole between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 10 am, before heading into a nearby barber shop in search of a fresh new look.

But when he returned a few minutes later, the man discovered the thief snatched his high-end Trek bicycle, authorities said.

‘Special’ steal

A filcher nabbed a woman’s $600 bike she parked on Fifth Avenue on Nov. 5.

The victim told cops she used a U-lock to secure the Specialized-brand bicycle between St. Marks Place and Warren Street at 9 pm, and returned the next morning to find it was gone.
