A stab in the dark

A scoundrel slashed a man with a knife while trying to rob him on Livingston Street on March 11.

The victim told the cops that while he was walking on the sidewalk, the perp came up from behind and cut his left arm demanding for the civilian’s wallet. The villain then fled towards Holy Street at 2:53 pm, police said.

Bag swagged

A crook punched a lady from behind, knocking her unconscious, then stole her backpack on Middigah Street on March 14.

The victim was near Columbia Heights at 8 pm when the miscreant attacked, then fled with her backpack containing her laptop, cellphone, and wallet, according to police.

Waking nightmare

A villain swiped a sleeping straphanger’s backpack as he rode the G train to the Hoyt Street station on March 15.

The victim awoke at the station near at 7 pm near the Schermerhorn Street to find his bag — along with his laptop, cellphone, wallet, and keys — gone, according to police.

Push comes to shove

A dirtbag pushed down a 68-year-old woman and violently assaulted her on Fulton Street on March 28.

The victim told the police she was near Redhook Lane at 4 pm when the crook approached her from behind and pushed her down on the sidewalk, then punched her in the face and neck.

The victim was knocked unconscious, and the criminal fled in an unknown direction, according to authorities.
