68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bottled-up rage

A mystery perp struck a man in the head with a glass bottle on Fourth Avenue on July 4.

The assault occurred at 86th Street just before 3:45 am, police said, adding that the man fled down Fourth Avenue towards 85th Street to escape the lout, according to the report. The bottle left the victim with a gash on his forehead and right eye and his left eye swollen shut, police said. The man told police he didn’t remember anything after he got hit with the bottle.

Caught the cameras

A burglar stole two camera server boxes from a 73rd Street apartment building at some point after July 3, when an employee was away.

The theft occurred at the building at Fort Hamilton Parkway at some point after 11:45 am. There were no signs of forced entry, according to the report.

A picture’s worth

A lout told a Bay Ridge Avenue resident he would publish nude photos he had of him if he did not immediately cough up $1,000 on July 3.

The threat occurred at the man’s home between Third and Fourth avenues at around 3 pm, when the pair were video chatting, according to the report, which noted that the man didn’t pay up.

Stealing spree

Police arrested a woman who they say stole more than $1,100 worth of clothing and accessories from an 86th Street store on July 5.

The alleged theft took place at the store between Fourth and Fifth avenues at around 10:30 pm, police said.

Eye for an eye

Police arrested a man who allegedly hit another man in the head with a hard object above the left eye — causing a laceration and bleeding — after a verbal dispute on 76th Street on July 7.

The alleged assault occurred between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue just after 5 am. A witness told police the perp struck the man in the front of the head with a baseball bat, according to the report, which added that emergency medical personnel transported the victim to Lutheran Medical Center, where he received four stitches.

Batter up

Cops cuffed a man who they say hit a woman in the left leg with a baseball bat — leaving her with redness, pain, and bruising — on 76th Street on July 7.

The alleged assault occurred between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue around 8:30 pm, police said. The woman tried to stop the man from using the bat, which prompted him to aim it at her, according to the report.

What a headache

Police arrested a man who they say hit a woman with a plastic crate on the right side of her head on Third Avenue on July 8.

The alleged assault occurred between 73rd and 74th streets around 1:15 am, police said. The woman told police that the man was angry because she was sitting outside listening to music, according to the report.
