78th Precinct

Park Slope

Flatbush whacked

A thief stole a woman’s sedan she parked on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 19.

The victim told police she left her 2011 Infiniti G37 near the Prospect Park Zoo at midnight, and returned the next day to find an empty spot where her four-door had been.

Still sharp

Cops cuffed a 67-year-old man for allegedly slashing another man’s face on a D train at Atlantic Avenue on Feb. 4.

The arresting officer reported spotting the suspect arguing with the victim, 52, at the station near Fourth Avenue at 9 am, when he pulled out a knife and cut the man’s face.

The suspect was arrested on a felony assault charge, while the victim was transported to Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, cops said.

Cold blooded

Some jerk looted a woman’s car on Lincoln Place on Feb. 2, taking medical equipment and her navigation system.

The victim told police she left her four door near Underhill Avenue at 9 pm, and returned the following evening to find her front passenger-side window busted in and an estimated $200 worth of stuff stolen, including a blood-cooling machine for work.

Punch happy

Cops have given up the hunt for the goon who they say slugged a 17-year-old boy inside an Atlantic Avenue mall on Feb. 4.

The victim told police he was inside the shopping center near Flatbush Avenue at 5:48 pm, when the suspect waltzed up and cold-cocked him, leaving him with a split lip.

Police have not made any arrests, and closed the case.

Have a seat!

A guy threw a bar stool across a Fifth Avenue watering hole on Feb. 4.

The bartender told police he got into an argument with a patron at the tavern between Bergen and Dean streets at 8:06 pm, when he became enraged and threw the stool without hitting anybody.

The business declined to press charges, and the case has been closed, cops said.
