Bull market

The heir to a Flatbush Avenue market allegedly attacked a woman on April 25.

The victim, 46, told police she was shopping at the grocery between St. Marks Avenue and Prospect Place at 8 pm when the owner’s 20-year-old son shoved her, causing her to stumble to the ground.

The young man has not been arrested, according to police, who said the case has been closed.

Bad break

Some jerk busted up a man’s car parked on Flatbush Avenue on April 28.

The victim told police he left his ’03 Honda Pilot near the Prospect Park Zoo at 1:30 am, and returned later that morning to discover some reprobate had busted his front passenger-side window.

Locked up

Cops arrested a 35-year-old man who they say attacked his uncle on 10th Street on April 27.

The victim, 55, told police he’d been arguing with his nephew between Third and Fourth avenues at 1 pm, when, as he attempted to walk away from the argument, the younger man through a lock at him.

Police arrested the nephew on assault charges later that day, while investigators took snaps of a gash the uncle sustained from the attack, cops said.

Cold cocked

A woman punched another lady in the face following a dispute over ice cream on 11th Street on April 23.

The victim told police the other woman grew irate after she setup her ice cream stand near Prospect Park West at 3:30 pm, when she suddenly socked her once in the kisser.

The miscreant fled in the wake of her dastardly sucker punch, heading towards Grand Army Plaza along Prospect Park West, according to police.

She remains free from custody, and the 78th Precinct has since closed the case, cops said.
