Road rage

A malefactor stabbed a guy in the chest after getting into a fight on Hanson Place on March 24, police said.

The victim told police he was riding his bike near Fulton Street when he got into a verbal argument with the brute driving a silver pickup truck with New York yellow plates at about 8:30 pm.

The motorist hopped out of his truck and punched the biker in the back of his head and then stabbed him in the chest with a pocket knife, according to authorities. Paramedics transported the victim to Methodist Hospital with a cut in his chest and the good-for-nothing sped off, cops said.

Chase and steal

Two nogoodniks chased down a guy and threatened him with a knife on S. Portland Avenue on March 19, police said.

The 36-year-old victim told police one of the villains pushed him from behind near Lafayette Avenue and then chased him down at about 8:45 pm, cops said. One of the snakes took out a knife and said “Give me your wallet,” according to authorities.

The victim handed over his iPhone 7 and the pair fled on S. Portland Avenue, officials said.

Street slashing

Some nogoodnik slashed a guy near Willoughby Street on March 25, police said.

The 24-year-old victim was near Ashland Place at about 8:10 pm when the baddie slashed him on the left side of his neck, cops said.

The criminal fled and paramedics took the victim to Methodist Hospital, according to authorities.

Friends or foes

Some sneak swiped a woman’s jewelry from her Clifton Place apartment sometime between March 20 and March 23, police said.

The 24-year-old woman, who lives between Grand and Classon avenues, told police she last saw her white stone earrings, ring, chain, anklet, and rose-colored white stone ring in her bedroom when she went to put them on at about 8:30 am on March 20.

The woman told police she lives with three other roommates and no one locks their bedrooms doors. She last saw her jewelry on Tuesday morning, after she had a guest over, cops said.
