84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown


A bruiser slashed a man on the chin with an unidentified sharp object after they got into a scuffle on a Clinton Hill-bound A train on Feb. 19.

The victim boarded the train at Fulton Street and sat down, he told police. When the train approached Hoyt-Schermerhorn station, the baddie approached him and a fight ensued. In the midst of the battle, the creep pulled out the sharp object, slashed the man on the chin, and fled, police reported.

Checked out

A thief lifted a woman’s wallet out of her shopping cart as she was perusing the aisles of a Fulton Street store on Feb. 13.

The lady was inside the store near Bridge Street at 2 pm when the snake reached into her handbag she had placed in the cart and took her wallet, which contained $100, her social security card, and credit cards, police said.

Turned up

A brute bashed a man who tried to stop him from stealing iPhones and speakers from a Fulton Street store on Feb. 15.

The jerk attempted to take iPhones out of a display in the shop by Smith Street at 2:20 pm when the victim approached him, according to a report. The lout then punched the guy in the face and took a $49 pair of speakers, but dropped them on his way out, authorities said.

Mid-day break-in

A weasel broke into a Court Street apartment and stole a woman’s passport and $200 on Feb. 15.

The resident told police she stepped out of her home near State Street at 1 pm, and returned at 2:20 pm to find her apartment door open and her belongings missing.
