Belt bruiser

Some villain attacked a man with a belt near MetroTech Center on April 13, police said.

The 26-year-old victim told cops he was near Jay Street at about 9 am when the snake came up to him and struck him with a belt buckle, causing a gash on his head, according to authorities.

Subway savage

Cops cuffed a guy for slashing someone in the arm with a knife on April 17 while on a subway near Willoughby Street.

The 39-year-old victim told police he was on a Bay Ridge-bound R train near Lawrence Street at about 3:10 pm when the suspect hopped on and the two started arguing about a seat. But the verbal dispute escalated and the man slashed him in the left arm with a switchblade, according to authorities.

Cashed out

Police arrested a guy for stealing a wad of cash from a Henry Street restaurant on April 16.

The suspect kicked his way into the eatery near Cranberry Street at about 5 am and then ran out with $800 from the cash register, according to authorities.

Stolen data

Cops cuffed a guy for stealing a victim’s two laptops from his office on Jay Street sometime between April 13 and April 16.

The suspect broke into the building near Plymouth Street and stole an Apple MacBook Pro and a Lenovo laptop, officials said.

Gym rat

A punk stole a guy’s wallet from his locker at an Atlantic Avenue gym on April 12, police said.

The victim told police he left his wallet inside an unlocked locker inside the fitness center near Court Street at about 4 pm when he went for a swim, and when he got back an hour later, his wallet — containing his credit card, driver’s license, and MetroCard — was gone, according to authorities.
