78th Precinct

Park Slope

No parking

Some jerk swiped a 61-year-old man’s disabled-parking permit from his car on Third Street on March 29.

The victim told police he left his car near Third Avenue at 5 a.m., and returned at around noon to find his city-issued permit stolen.

It’s possible the man left his car unlocked, the victim told investigators.

Homeless hotel

Cops arrested a 40-year-old man for allegedly attacking a resident of a Butler Street hotel being used as a homeless shelter on April 6.

The victim, 53, told police he was arguing with the suspect when the man attacked him inside the shelter-hotel between Nevins Street and Third Avenue at 1:50 a.m., scratching his forearm.

Police arrested the suspect on a misdemeanor assault charge that day, cops said.

Teen terrorized

Police have given up the hunt for a man who threatened a 17-year-old girl outside a Fifth Avenue School on April 4.

The victim told police she was leaving the school near Ninth Street at 3 p.m. when the creep walked up to her and snarled, “Watch you backs. You are luck I don’t have a gun.”
