Sunset Park–Windsor Terrace

Work buddy

Cops arrested a man for allegedly beating a colleague on Seventh Avenue on Nov. 11.

The victim told police he was arguing with his co-worker near 60th Street at 10:52 pm, when the guy picked up a metal baseball bat and smacked him with it, busting up his left leg, before taking the slugger to his nearby car and smashing that up, too.

Police showed up, and cuffed the suspect for felony assault, cops said.

Teen terrors

Police cuffed two teens for allegedly beating and robbing a 27-year-old woman on 50th Street on Nov. 10.

The victim told police that the kid suspects, ages 14 and 16, jumped her between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 7:30 pm, punching her in the face, before taking her purse and jacket.

Cops busted both kids that day for felony robbery, according to police.

Gun nut

Officers arrested a man for alleged possession of an illegal firearm on Eighth Avenue on Nov. 10.

The arresting officer claimed he spotted the suspect near 48th Street with a nine millimeter Ruger pistol at 2:55 pm, and, upon searching the man, discovered the pistol loaded up with 17 rounds of ammo, in addition to a bag of pot stuffed into his pants, according to the police report.

Three versus one

Police busted three men for allegedly beating and robbing a man on Sixth Avenue on Nov. 10.

The victim told police he was arguing with the suspects near 49th Street at 2:30 am, when the trio laid a beatdown on him, before nabbing his Samsung smartphone.

The suspects fled afterwards, but the victim joined police on a search of the area, and managed to point out his attackers, who were promptly cuffed for felony robbery, cops said.
