Holy smokes!

A worm stole packs of fish from an Ashland Place grocery store on Sept. 15 and then pushed an employee down the stairs when he tried to stop him, police said.

The sneak grabbed the packages of smoked salmon from the market near Lafayette Avenue at about 7:40 pm and then hit the 22-year-old employee in the neck and knocked him down the stairs when he tried to stop him from the fleeing the store with the fish, according to authorities. Paramedics took the victim to Kings County Hospital for injuries to his neck and shoulder, cops said.

Caught on camera

A villain stabbed a man in the arm inside a Park Avenue bodega on Sept. 14, police said.

Video surveillance from the deli near Cumberland Street shows the snake stab the victim in his left arm at about 10:37 pm, cops said. Both the victim and brute fled, according to authorities.

Road rage

Cops cuffed a guy for allegedly socking a woman in the face on Fulton Street on Sept. 14.

The victim asked the suspect for help with the bus route near Hudson Avenue a little before 10 pm, but he got agitated and punched her, breaking her front teeth, according to authorities. A good Samaritan saw what happened and tried to help, but the suspect then stabbed him in his torso and arm, police said.

Paramedics transported the second victim to Methodist Hospital to be treated for his stab wounds, and the suspect to Brooklyn Hospital, officials said.

Late-night snack

Some jerk swiped a bunch of electronics and cash from a Myrtle Avenue restaurant sometime overnight on Sept. 13, police said.

The baddie broke in through the eatery’s unlocked front door near Ryerson Street at some point between between 11:30 pm and 10:30 am the next day, and ran off with Apple and Samsung tablets and a wad of cash, according to authorities.

Jewel thief

A burglar swiped a woman’s jewelry from her Washington Avenue apartment on Sept. 13, police said.

The victim told cops she had left her apartment near Gates Avenue to head to work at about 6 am and when she returned at about 5:30 pm, realized the good-for-nothing had stolen her Kronaby smartwatch, a diamond necklace, diamond ring, and silver ring, according to authorities.

Reasonable discourse

Joey from Clinton Hills says:
Why won't they say the name of the Grocery Store? It's Whole Foods 365. I'm not sure of the name of the restaurant on Myrtle at Ryerson though.
