Mugged on Driggs

A dastardly duo beat a man at the corner of Driggs Avenue and Lorimer Street on Dec. 13.

The two assailants pummeled the victim at around 2:40 pm, punching him in the face repeatedly, kicking him to the ground, and booting him in the torso, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.

The victim suffered swelling, bleeding, and redness on his face and head that required hospital treatment.

Police apprehended two 17-year-old suspects.

Bad neighbor

An angry Morgan Avenue resident pulled a gun on a woman who warned him that his air conditioner might need repairs on Dec. 12, investigators claim.

Police arrested a 32-year-old accused of flashing a firearm after an onlooker informed him she saw debris fall onto his air conditioner between Frost Street and Maspeth Avenue at around 9 am.

The suspect has been charged with menacing and harassment.

Punched and cut

Cops arrested a 34-year-old accused of punching and cutting a man with a kitchen knife on Dec. 12.

The suspect allegedly slugged the victim in the face several times before stabbing his hand repeatedly on Russell Street between Nassau and Norman avenues at 12:20 am, prosecutors allege.

The man taken into custody faces assault, menacing, harassment, and criminal possession of a weapon charges.
