84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Grab and go

Some ruffian punched a woman and stole her phone on Smith Street on Jan. 14, police said.

The victim told police the snake knocked her in the head near Wyckoff Street at about 9 pm, causing her to fall to the ground. The brute then grabbed her Samsung phone and ran off, according to authorities.

Now he needs a doctor

Cops cuffed a guy on Jan. 14 for hitting a person in a Willoughby Street doctor’s office, police said.

The 43-year-old suspect hurled a chair at the 46-year-old victim after the two got into an argument inside the medical facility near Lawrence Street at about 10:30 am, according to authorities. The chair hit the victim’s arm and body, cops said. The suspect has two active warrants, officials said.

Hate crime, do the time

Police arrested a teen on Jan. 14 for verbally and physically assaulting a transgender woman and shouting a racist slur at her while on a Bay Ridge-bound train, cops said.

The 20-year-old victim told police the sleazebag punched her in the lip while on the train near Jay Street–MetroTech at about 9:15 pm and shouted “You’re not a woman, you’re a man,” and called her a “n-----” according to authorities.

Stabbed on the street

A villain stabbed a guy while he was walking home on Pacific Street on Jan. 18, police said.

The bruiser told cops he was heading home near Smith Street at about 10:30 pm when the savage said “I heard you’re going to shoot me,” and tried to stab him in the chest with a knife, but ended up just slightly cutting and bruising him.

The goon then stabbed the victim in his cheek, causing a one-inch cut that required stitches, according to authorities. The tough fled and victim walked to a hospital in Cobble Hill, cops said.
