Helter shelter

Police arrested a woman for allegedly beating another gal inside an Eighth Avenue homeless shelter on Oct. 4.

The victim told police she was arguing with the suspect inside a library at the shelter between 14th and 15th streets at 7:49 am, when the woman pulled a chair out from under her and started pummeling her arm to the point where she could no longer bend it.

Cops cuffed their suspect that day, charging her with misdemeanor assault, according to police.

Lender fender

Some goon slugged a 19-year-old girl inside a Grand Army Plaza library on Oct. 1.

The victim told police she was boarding an elevator inside the book lender between Flatbush Avenue and Eastern Parkway at 5:46 pm, when an unknown assailant caught her with a mean sucker punch.

No arrests have been made, and police closed the case, cops said.

Wake up!

A couple of lowlifes attacked a sleeping man at Grand Army Plaza on Oct. 1.

The victim told police he was dozing on a bench between Eastern Parkway and Flatbush Avenue at 2:40 am when somebody smacked him hard on the head, giving him a nasty gash on his ear.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.

Caffeinated crook

Cops busted a man for allegedly stealing 38 Red Bulls from a Flatbush Avenue chain store on Oct. 2.

An employee told police she spotted the suspect nab an estimated $119 worth of the energy drink off shelves at the store near Atlantic Avenue at 9:45 pm, before breezing past the register with his ill-gotten jitter juice.

Police arrested the suspect that day, charging him with misdemeanor larceny, cops said.

Bike heist

Police arrested a 52-year-old man who they say broke into a man’s Carroll Street home and stole his bike on Oct. 2.

The victim told police his wife noticed the suspect break into their home between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 8:22 pm, before nabbing the two-wheeler and attempting to pedal off.

But before he could make his escape, the victim confronted the suspect, leading him to ditch the bike and instead flee on foot, cops said.

Police soon arrived and searched the area with the help of the victim, who was able to point out his alleged burglar, who cops promptly cuffed on a felony burglary charge, according to police.
