Biting remarks

Police arrested a man who allegedly bit another man on the left side of his face in a fight on Prospect Avenue on Aug. 23.

The victim told police he was between Fourth and Fifth avenues just before 6:30 pm when when the suspect’s girlfriend approached and asked him to move his double parked car. The pair of men then got in a fight that included the suspect allegedly biting the victim, leaving a swollen and bleeding mark — and police arrested the man the same day, according to the report.

Canned it

Cops cuffed a woman who they say threw a metal can at another woman’s forehead — allegedly causing a laceration that required stitches — in a Sixth Avenue catering hall on Aug. 18.

The assault occurred at the hall at 56th Street between 11:10 pm and 11:30 pm, cops said. Emergency medical personnel transported the victim to NYU-Langone Brooklyn Hospital, according to the report. Officers arrested the woman at Third Avenue and 52nd Street the same night, according to the report.

Biked away

A thief stole a man’s bicycle and lock he parked outside his Fifth Avenue home sometime between Aug. 18 and 19.

The theft occurred outside of the home at 19th Street between 11 pm on Aug. 18 and 9 pm the following night, according to the report.

Parked it

A lout stole a man’s gray backpack with his laptop and computer charger from inside from a Sixth Avenue park where he was watching a soccer game on Aug. 19.

The theft occurred at the green space at 44th Street around 8 pm, police said.

Biked in the night

A thief stole a man’s unchained bike from the front yard of his 22nd Street home sometime overnight on Aug. 19.

The theft occurred from the home between Third and Fourth avenues between 4 pm on Aug. 19 and 6 am the following day, according to the report.

Stopped traffic

Police arrested a man who allegedly blocked a police car and general traffic on Fourth Avenue on Aug. 20.

The incident occurred between 56th and 57th streets between 3:15 and 3:30 pm, police said, adding, when police asked him to move his car, he refused, and started screaming and yelling when an officer tried to guide him towards the sidewalk.

Gone in the night

A crook broke the tailgate window of a woman’s car and stole her pricey mountain bike from 17th Street sometime overnight on Aug. 21.

The woman told police she left her car in the spot between 10th and 11th avenues at 7:30 pm on Aug. 21, and when she returned at 6:30 am the following day, it was gone, police said.

Smoked up

Police arrested a pair of men who they say were smoking marijuana out in the open on 25th Street on Aug. 22.

The incident occurred between Fourth and Fifth avenues just after 3 pm, according to the report.

Hot potato

A punk threw a potato at the front glass window of a Fifth Avenue store on Aug. 23.

The incident occurred at the store at 57th Street just before 12:30 am, police said, adding that the perp didn’t cause any damages to the window and fled in an unknown direction on Fifth Avenue.

Pushed and purse snatched

A lout pushed a woman to the ground and stole her purse in a Vanderbilt Street park on Aug. 23.

The woman told police she was reading in the park at E. Fifth Street between 1:15 pm and 1:40 pm when the goon grabbed her newspaper and said “shut up and don’t talk.” He pushed her to the ground, cutting her elbow, and fled on foot with her purse, cops said.

Head games

Police arrested a man who they say struck another man in the head multiple times on 51st Street on Aug. 24.

The pair got into a verbal dispute between Third and Fourth avenues just before midnight, which escalated when the suspect punched the victim in the head — allegedly causing him to fall to the ground and suffer swelling and bruising to his head. Emergency medical personnel transported the man to Maimonides Medical Center, according to the report, which added that police arrested the man the following day.
