Chain gang busted

An area teen was rushed to the hospital last week after a group of thugs whipped him with a chain.

Police said that at least five teens were arrested in connection with the attack, which took place on Seigel Street near Humboldt Street at 4:30 p.m. on October 22.

The victim told police that he was walking along Seigel Street when the suspects attacked him, striking him in the face with a metal chain.

Police said that the victim needed eight stitches to close a bloody gash to his face.

The five suspects, who were not named, were rounded up and charged with gang assault in the days that followed, officials said.

Straphangers were jumping on a J train rolling through Williamsburg when an unhinged passenger forgot about the coveted “personal space” rule and began screaming in their faces.

Officials said that the 25-year-old, later identified as Estalin Goris, was arrested on charges of obstructing governmental administration, menacing and disorderly conduct after causing a stir on the southbound J train at 2:45 a.m. on November 1.

Witnesses told police that they were seated on the train when Goris allegedly approached and began “taunting” them. He then began “yelling in their faces.”

When a transit cop saw what was happening and interceded, Goris began yelling at the peace officer, calling him “gay” and an “a--hole.”

Goris was taken into custody after a brief struggle, prosecutors said.

Cops apprehended a 52-year-old for freeing an assortment of tools from the back of a truck on Boerum Street.

Officials said that Elvis Tillman reportedly rolled up to the Ford 350 truck near Leonard Street at noon on October 15, parked his car behind the vehicle and proceeded to force open the rear door.

Tillman could have gotten away with the drills, impact gun and sawzalls he found inside the truck if he had not been seen by the truck’s owner, officials said.

Police said that he was arrested this week after investigators identified him as the thief and was charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny.

A 35-year-old motorist who did a little too much celebrating this past Halloween was spirited off to jail after he was caught drunk driving through Williamsburg.

Officials said that Placido Collado was pulled over near the corner of Marcy Avenue and South 1st Street at 11 p.m. on October 31 and immediately taken into custody when he showed all the signs of intoxication: slurred speech, unsteady gait, red watery eyes and the smell of alcohol on his breath.

Cops were also treated to the added bonus of a belligerent demeanor, according to a complaint filed with the Kings County DAs office, who ultimately charged him with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Police are asking area residents for any information about a sex attack in nearby Greenpoint.

Officials said that a 25-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at 4:30 a.m. on October 20 at the corner of Diamond Street and Nassau Avenue.

The woman’s attacker was described as a 5’8”, 185-pound Hispanic male wearing blue jeans, a dark T-shirt and sporting a mustache.

Armed with a sketch, police are continuing their search for the assailant before he strikes again.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to contact the NYPD CrimeStoppers hot line at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Cops are looking for a silver-tongued devil who complimented an area woman on her looks before demanding her money and phone.

The victim told police that she was nearing the corner of Morgan and Johnson avenues at 6:40 a.m. on October 26 when the stranger walked up to her.

“Girl, you look nice today,” the man exclaimed.

But this happy encounter ended on a dark note.

Without skipping a beat, the thief demanded her property and stormed off with the loot, police said.

A 33-year-old man wasn’t safe at home last week when he was robbed him of his iPhone inside his building’s vestibule.

The victim told police that he had entered the Hope Street building between Roebling and Havemeyer Streets at 8 p.m. on October 23 when the unidentified suspect pulled a knife on him.

The thief asked to “see” the victim’s iPhone, but never returned it, officials said.
