He’s screwed!

Police arrested a guy for attacking a victim with a screwdriver inside a Prince Street shelter on April 30.

The 56-year-old victim was lying on his bed inside the home near Tillary Street at about 7:20 pm when the 49-year-old suspect attacked him with the tool, according to authorities.

Truck thief

Some sneak hopped into a guy’s truck parked on Washington Walk on May 1 and swiped his checks and cash, police said.

The victim told cops he got out of his truck to make a delivery and left it unlocked near Myrtle Avenue for a few minutes a little after noon, and realized at his next stop on the same block that the punk had climbed in and stole $5,070 in cash and checks, cops said.

Not playing games

A nogoodnik stole a teen’s PlayStation 4 from his Cumberland Walk apartment on May 4, police said.

The 17-year-old victim told cops he left his apartment near Carlton Avenue at about 8 am and when he got back at about 4:30 pm, noticed his bedroom door was damaged and his console was missing, police reported.

What a bully!

A snake hit a teen in the head on S. Portland Avenue on May 4, police said.

The 14-year-old victim told cops he got into a fight with a former classmate near Lafayette Avenue at about 9 pm, who started hitting him with his fist, foot, and pole from behind and then fled, police said. Paramedics transported the victim to Brooklyn Hospital, cops said.

In a split second

Some baddie swiped a guy’s cellphone from a Myrtle Avenue deli on May 2, police said.

The victim told cops he put his Samsung Galaxy on the counter inside the bodega near Washington Park at about 9 am to make some coffee and when he returned, it was gone, along with his credit and debit cards, security guard license, and social security card he kept inside the case, according to authorities.
