88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

No choice

Cops cuffed a teen who they say threatened a guy and stole his cellphone on Cumberland Street on Sept. 5.

The 19-year-old suspect picked up the victim near Fulton Street and Rockaway Boulevard at about 9:45 am and when he got to Atlantic Avenue about an hour later, pulled out a gun and knife and said, “which one do you want?” police said.

The suspect grabbed the victim’s phone and ran off until police stopped him, according to authorities.

Sum jerks!

A trio of punks stole a guy’s bag of food and punched him on Monument Walk on Sept. 8, police said.

The three baddies socked the victim in the face near Navy Street at about 9:30 pm and ran off with his $57 bag of Chinese food, officials said.

Street sleazebags

A lout hurled a battery at a woman on Myrtle Avenue on Sept. 6, police said.

The 38-year-old victim told cops she was walking near Carlton Avenue at about 7:30 when a group of pervs tried to talk to her, but when she ignored them, one of them threw the cellphone battery at her head, causing a cut on her temple, officials said.

Not so fast

Police arrested a guy for allegedly assaulting a cop after he stopped him for stealing from a Myrtle Avenue store on Sept. 8.

The suspect left the drugstore near Clermont Avenue with ill-gotten deodorant and body spray when an officer tried to stop him, but he resisted arrest, according to authorities. The suspect flailed his arms and then choked the cop, police said.

Missing wheels

A good-for-nothing stole a guy’s motorcycle from Carlton Avenue sometime overnight on Sept. 8, police said.

The victim told cops he had parked his Honda two-wheeler near Atlantic Avenue at about 11 pm and when he returned to get it the next day at 10:30 am, it was missing, according to authorities.
