Fizzled out

A scoundrel stole a bottle of soda from a Fulton Street drugstore on July 19 and injured a store employee, police said.

The 36-year-old baddie tried to leave the store near DeKalb Avenue at about 2:45 pm with the $2 soda when a security worker tried to stop him, but he used an unknown object to hurt the employee, according to authorities.

Needless to say

Cops cuffed a woman for stabbing another woman with a needle inside a Pierrepont Street playground on July 16, police said.

The victim told cops the 66-year-old suspect poked her with a needle, causing a small puncture wound, inside the green space near Henry Street at about 4:15 pm, cops said.

Stick it to him

Police arrested a woman for hitting a guy in face with a walking stick inside a park on Schermerhorn Street on July 20, police said.

The 43-year-old man told cops the suspect threatened him with a knife inside the meadow near Nevins Street at about 4:50 pm, and then struck him in the face with a stick, cutting him, according to authorities.

Copped the copper

Some punk stole a bunch of copper wire from a Jay Street basement sometime between July 12 and July 18, police said.

The victim told cops the crook broke into the basement near Concord Street and ran off with thousands of dollars worth of copper wire from a switch gear. The baddie must have been familiar with the equipment, the victim told police.

Ring reprobate

The 33-year-old victim told cops on July 19 that he had left his expensive Tiffany’s ring on a table inside the building near Dock Street at about 2 pm, and when he returned 20 minutes later, it was gone, according to authorities.
