Ugly stick

Some vandal smashed a man’s car window with a tree branch on Sixth Avenue on June 5.

A witness told police he spotted the miscreant bust up the man’s car between Sixth and Seventh streets at 8 am.

Cops failed to track down the criminal, and the case has been closed, according to police.

Bergen beat down

Police busted three teenagers for allegedly beating a man on Bergen Street on June 6.

The victim told police the suspects jumped him between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 6:53 pm, assailing him with a flurry of kicks and punches.

New York’s Finest nabbed their teen suspects later that day, charging them with assault, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bike he left unlocked outside a Ninth Street drug store on June 6.

The victim told police he parked his Trek bicycle between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 7 pm, and returned about 15 minutes later to find his pedal-powered ride stolen.

Investigators have closed the case without any arrests, cops said.


Cops arrested a woman who they say used Mace on an ride share driver on St. Johns Place on June 7.

The victim told police he pulled over near Fifth Avenue to pick up his passenger at 6 pm, but his would-be customer became irate, claiming the driver parked too far away, and so she doused him with the chemical.

Paramedics took the victim to Methodist Hospital, and police arrested the suspect that day on assault charges, cops said.

Scoot away

A thief drove off with a man’s Vespa scooter he parked on 12th Street on June 4.

The victim told police he left his low-powered two wheeler between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 1:30 pm, and returned the next morning to find his ride stolen.

Police haven’t managed to track down the scooter thief, and the case has been closed, cops said.
