88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Slash and grab

Bandits attacked a man and nabbed his phone at a St. Edwards Street park on Aug. 26.

The victim told police the thieves attacked him with a knife and slashed him multiple times between Myrtle Avenue and Willoughby Street around 1:30 p.m.

The brutes then made a run for it toward Flatbush Avenue, while paramedics rushed the victim to Methodist hospital, according to police.

One and done

A wretch punched and robbed a man in front of a N. Oxford Walk apartment building on Aug. 27.

The victim told police the criminal cold cocked him between N. Portland and Carlton avenues at 5:20 p.m., before yanking out his wireless headphones, nabbing $20, and then hightailing it.

Back alley slasher

A razor-wielding whacko attacked a woman on Navy Walk on Aug. 29.

The victim told police the brute pushed her up against a fence and started cutting her with a razor, slashing her in the back of the head, arm, and on both ears near Navy Street and Ashland Place at 5 a.m.

The attacker fled the scene without taking anything, or even uttering a single word throughout the attack, according to the authorities.

Paramedics brought the woman to Brooklyn Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Fort Greene stickup

Two gunmen robbed a guy at Fort Greene Park on Aug. 30.

The victim told police one of the scumbags showed off a pistol, while the other nabbed $10 off of him inside the St. Edwards Street green space near Myrtle Avenue at 10:50 p.m., before fleeing.

With friends like that…

Some yahoo threw a glass pitcher at her friend inside a Fulton Street bar on Aug. 29.

The victim told police that her buddy threw the pitcher at her — but missed — smashing it on the floor of the watering hole near St. James Place at 8:20 p.m.
