72nd Precinct

Sunset Park–Windsor Terrace

Jump start

Cops are hunting for the vandal who used a row of cars parked along 52nd Street as trampolines on March 30.

A witness told police he spotted the scamp jumping on the hoods of four cars parked between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 11:40 p.m.

The rascal’s antics caused a whopping $1,600 worth of damage across all four vehicles, cops said.

Socket to ’em

Police are searching for the reprobate who broke both of a man’s eye sockets inside a 19th Street apartment building on March 30.

The victim told police he spotted the goon lingering in the vestibule of his building between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 5:30 a.m., and that the scoundrel attacked him following a dispute, pummeling him with his fists.

The man was able to transport himself to Maimonides Hospital following the assault, where doctors told him he would need surgery to correct breaks to both eye sockets, cops said.

Bike thief

A bandit made off with a man’s motorcycle he parked on 52nd Street on March 27.

The victim told police he parked his Honda between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 11 p.m., and returned the next morning to find his $1,500 Japanese motor bike stolen.

High gravity

Cops arrested a woman on a felony weapons charge after catching her with an illegal blade on 49th Street on March 27.

The arresting officer claims he recognized the suspect from a prior arrest hanging out near Third Avenue at 8:20 p.m., and after the woman gave him a false name, the cop reached her and found she was in possession of gravity blade, and a crack pipe.
