One that got away

Cops are searching for the goon who put a guy in a headlock while other suspects allegedly tried to steal from him on Willoughby Avenue on Dec. 14, police said.

The victim told cops he was near Washington Park at about 11:45 pm when the villain grabbed and restrained him while three other teens tried to steal his property, according to authorities.

Cops cuffed the trio, but are still looking for the snake who put the victim in the headlock, according to authorities.

Butting heads

Police arrested a woman for head-butting a victim inside a Tillary Street shelter on Dec. 13.

The 65-year-old victim told police she was in a fight with the 52-year-old suspect inside the shelter near Prince Street at about 8:30 am when the suspect threw her head back, hitting the victim in the head. The suspect then grabbed the victim by the head and threw her to the ground, according to authorities.

Tool thief

A sneak stole a bunch of tools from a guy’s car parked on Fulton Street on Dec. 10, police said.

The victim told police he had parked his vehicle near Washington Avenue at about 4:30 pm and when he returned a few minutes later, noticed some baddie had broken into it and ran off with his tools, including a drill, saw, batteries, and charger, according to authorities.

Data breach

A malefactor stole a bunch of laptops during an event on Flushing Avenue on Dec. 13, police said.

The victim told cops the creep was scoping out the event near Sixth Street at about 11 am and ran off with five laptops, according to authorities.
