Party off

Officers apprehended a man who allegedly attacked his friend for refusing to continue their night out as they were leaving a Fifth Avenue bar on Aug. 21.

The victim told police that he was at the watering hole near Bergen Avenue with the suspect around 1:24 am when his pal asked him to go to another bar. When he declined to go, the angry buddy repeatedly punched the victim, causing injuries to the right side of his face, police allege. When cops arrived, they arrested the 29-year-old suspect for the attack.

Employee of the month

Authorities busted a man who they say stole more than $6,000 from a Flatbush Avenue department store over a period of time on Aug. 23.

Cops say the 26-year-old suspect, who was a former employee of the store near Atlantic Avenue, stole money from a register on multiple occasions, and a video game between July 23 and Aug. 20. According to the report, he stole $6,049 in total.

Market theft

Cops arrested a man for allegedly stealing from a Third Street supermarket on Aug. 25.

All kicked out

A punk burglarized a Bergen Street business sign on Aug. 17.

The owner of the business near Flatbush Avenue told police that someone caused about $1,250 worth of damage to a sign.

Shirt thief

Some nogoodnik stole a pricey shirt from a package delivered to a Dean Street building sometime between Aug. 23 and 25.

The victim told police that when she retrieved the package from the lobby of the building near Fifth Avenue, she discovered that someone opened it and took the garment, according to the report.

Not so fast

Cops arrested a suspect who they say stole from a Flatbush Avenue lingerie store on Aug. 22.

Officers say the suspect entered the store near Atlantic Avenue around 4 pm and tried to leave without paying for the undergarments. Police later apprehended the 41-year-old suspect at the scene, according to the report.

Young gun

Police busted a teen for allegedly breaking into a Seventh Avenue restaurant on Aug. 21.

According to the report, the suspect entered the eatery near Fourth Street through a closed cellar door around 3 pm and hid there for several minutes, before trying to take off with an estimated $126 worth of wine. Cops caught up with the 16-year-suspect and also found him in possession of drugs.
