No biting!

Cops arrested a woman for biting an officer after walking through the emergency exit door to get into the subway station at Joralemon Street on Jan. 18.

The 30-year-old suspect skipped the turnstiles and walked through the door in the station near Court Street at about 10:15 am, and when two officers confronted her, bit one on his hand and kicked another in the leg, according to authorities.

Locked out

Some baddie swiped a woman’s electronics and jewelry from a Dean Street apartment on Jan. 19, police said.

The victim told police she left her apartment near Third Avenue and locked up to head to class at about 8:25 am, and when she got back at about 1:40 pm, saw her door was unlocked and her iPad, MacBook computer, earrings and necklaces, a hard drive, and backpack were all gone, according to authorities.

Shattered glass

A malefactor smashed the front door to get into a Hicks Street restaurant and stole cash and electronics on Jan. 20, police said.

The nogoodnik shattered the eatery’s glass front door at about 4 am and ran off with a wad of cash and an iPad, officials said.

Information breach!

A good-for-nothing stole a bunch of laptops from an office on Main Street sometime between Jan. 13 and 16, police said.

An employee returned to the office near Water Street after the long weekend on Jan. 16 and saw that an estimated $15,000 worth of Mac laptops were gone, according to authorities.

Brutal bereavement

A heartless lout stole a woman’s wallet from her coat pocket while she was at a funeral at a Hicks Street church on Jan. 20, police said.

The 21-year-old victim told police she had hung up her coat outside house of worship near Grace Court at about 10:10 am while attending the funeral, and when she went to get it about 30 minutes later, her purple wallet — with her passport, Washington state driver’s license, and two debit cards inside it — was gone, according to authorities.
