Special deposit

An indigent woman defecated in the lobby of a Seventh Avenue bank on Jan. 9.

An employee told police he spotted the woman, apparently homeless, sleeping near a teller machine at the financial institution between Union and President streets at 10:40 am.

He asked her to leave, and the woman duly complied — but not before pulling down her pants and letting loose right there in the foyer, cops said.

Relieved, the woman fled the bank on foot, and patrolmen with the 78th Precinct have been instructed to keep an eye peeled for the fecal fiend, according to police.

Underground goon

Cops busted a man suspected of beating a woman at the Atlantic Avenue subway station on Jan. 12.

The victim, 57, told police she was waiting for a 2 train at the station near Flatbush Avenue at 9:50 pm, when the suspect attacked her without reason, busting her nose and leaving lumps on her head.

Police arrived to find the suspect in the first car of a 2 train, and the man allowed himself to be cuffed without protest, cops said.

Paramedics took the victim to Brooklyn Hospital for treatment, according to police.

No-Park Slope

A parking dispute turned violent on Nevins Street on Jan. 10.

The victim, 28, told police he was between President and Carroll streets working on his car at 5:20 pm when an irate older man challenged him for his parking space.

The dispute turned ugly after the man shoved the victim, and then socked him in the face, cops said.

The victim refused to press charges following the fight, and the case has been closed, according to police.

Bad delivery

Police arrested a man for punching a delivery guy on 13th Street on Jan. 10 after he refused to hand over food in exchange for counterfeit money.

The victim told police he met the suspect between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 4:44 am, but the encounter turned bitter after the suspect handed over a bogus $100 bill in exchange for his food.

The pair argued, and the suspect snatched $70 worth legit bills from the victim, before cracking him once in the face, cops said.

Police arrested the suspect that night after the victim pointed him out to patrolmen, and the man was booked on robbery charges, cops said.
