Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Hungry hucksters

Cops cuffed two teens for punching a Chinese food delivery man and stole the grub at Atlantic Commons on Jan. 22.

The delivery man dropped off the suspect’s General Tso chicken, ribs, and baby shrimp near Cumberland Street at about 8:20 pm when one of them tried to pay with a fake $100 bill, cops said.

The victim refused and the duo started punching him and ran off with the food towards Pacific Street, where the delivery man followed them, according to authorities.

Crossed paths

A villain slashed a woman in the face as she was crossing the street near Flatbush Avenue Extension on Jan. 27, police said.

The 21-year-old woman told police she was crossing at the intersection near Dekalb Avenue at about 11:30 am when the snake, who was walking in the opposite direction, turned back around and stabbed her with a blade, officials said.

Emergency responders took the woman to Methodist Hospital, according to authorities.

Bathroom break-in

Cops cuffed a guy who they say tried breaking into a Clinton Avenue apartment on Jan. 22.

The 26-year-old victim told police he got up in the middle of the night at about 2 am to go to the bathroom in his apartment near Greene Avenue and saw the suspect trying to break in through the bathroom window, officials said.

Grab and go

Some sneak swiped a guy’s wallet from his car inside a private parking lot on Carlton Avenue on Jan. 28, police said.

The victim told police he parked his car in the lot between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue at about 2 am, and forgot to lock the doors.

When he went back to get it at 10 am, he saw his wallet — with a credit card, passport, social security card, and driver’s license inside — was gone, officials said. The punk tried and failed to charge his card to Best Buy, Dunkin Donuts, and take out cash, police said.

Dude, where’s my car?

Some malefactor rode off with a victim’s work van parked on Park Avenue sometime between Jan. 18 and Jan. 22, police said.

The victim left the 2004 Ford near Navy Street on Jan. 18 and four days later, it was gone, according to authorities.
