Painful party favors
A man was shot in the arm and torso as he and a friend left a party on Glenwood Road early Saturday morning.
The victim, 25, said that he and his pal had just left the party near East 98th Street at 6 a.m. on November 28 and approached their car parked on Conklin Street between East 97th and East 98th streets -- not knowing that the phantom gunman had already had them in his sights.
The victim said that when he and his friend got into the car, the gunman, described only as a black male, crept up to them, pulled a gun and reached into the open window.
He then fired three rounds, hitting the 25-year-old twice in the arm and once in the torso.
Police said that the victim was rushed to Brookdale Hospital where he was listed in stable condition after treatment.
The gunman was still at large as this paper went to press.
Anyone with information regarding the assailant’s whereabouts, or anything about this incident, is asked to call the 69th Precinct detective squad at (718) 257-6315. All calls will be kept confidential.
More gunshots over Canarsie
Police said that the morning after the above incident, a strange series of events led to another neighborhood shooting -- this one on East 85th Street at Farragut Road.
Cops were dispatched to a home on East 85th Street shortly after 4 a.m. on November 29 on a report that someone was firing off a gun.
When they arrived on the scene, they found a 2007 Mercedes Benz riddled with holes. They also found 30-year-old Omar White armed with a .45 caliber pistol.
White admitted to letting a few rounds go, but it was for a good reason.
He claimed that when he returned home a short time earlier, he saw a suspicious looking guy in front of his address.
He said he ran into his home and got his gun, but was grabbed by the suspect and another male as soon as he went outside.
One of the men, who were both wearing ski masks, reportedly jammed a muzzle of a gun into his belly and ordered him to his knees.
The duo reportedly threatened to hurt White, but ultimately ran off.
White watched them run off, but ultimately opened fire in their direction when, he claimed, one of the men raised his gun at him.
Cops charged White with criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
It was unclear if cops were investigating White’s claims.
Senior attacked — by son
A 94-year-old man was rushed to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving after his son attacked him during a dispute.
Police said that the senior suffered a fractured skull and hip, internal bleeding and heart complications after his 45-year-old son shoved him into a wall in a post-Thanksgiving rage.
The son, who was not named because of his relationship to the victim, was charged with assault after cops were dispatched to the victim’s home on East 83rd Street near Avenue M.
Murderer nabbed – one year later
After a year, cops have completely closed their investigation into the murder of Robert Carnival.
Prosecutors announced last week that the third person involved in the fatal robbery at Cars on Utica, 2076 Utica Avenue at Avenue M, was rounded up and arrested.
Ironically, the man’s name is Innocent – Peter Innocent, officials said.
Officials charge that the 29-year-old and three other men entered the car dealership at 6:30 p.m. on December 27, 2008, pretending to make a purchase.
The crew pulled guns and ordered Carnival, the manager of the dealership, to fork over the receipts when Innocent’s accomplice, identified as Aaron Adderley, 26, shot the 35-year-old in the chest.
The shooting sparked a fire fight between Adderley’s accomplices and an armed employee that led to one of the suspects getting wounded.
Carnival died from his wound. Adderley, Innocent and accomplices Dario Giedeon and Antonio Lapenta all scattered, although the wounded one was found a short time later.
Adderley, Giedeon and Lapenta were all arrested in the weeks that followed.
Innocent was finally taken into custody on November 24. He was charged with murder in the second degree and attempted robbery, police said.
No one’s angel
A 41-year-old woman allegedly strung out on Angel Dust was arrested in Bergen Beach last week after she allegedly lobbed a steaming cup of coffee at a female cop idling on Avenue U.
Prosecutors said that Stacey Goldberg was charged with criminal mischief, attempted assault and criminal possession of a controlled substance after she was taken into custody at 2 p.m. on November 24.
The officer said that she was sitting in her squad car outside the KeyFood at 6620 Avenue U – her window rolled down – when Goldberg allegedly threw the large cup of coffee at her.
“F—king fake cops! You can’t arrest me!” Goldberg allegedly screamed as the officer and her partner took her into custody.
A quantity of Angel Dust – which the woman allegedly admitted to having -- was reportedly found in Goldberg’s pocket as she was taken to the 63rd Precinct for processing, officials said.
Too much volume
A 16-year-old was arrested in Mill Basin was arrested last week after he struck a young woman in the head with a computer speaker.
Officials said that the teen and his victim were arguing inside a home on Avenue N near East 53rd Street at 10:20 p.m. on November 22 when the attack took place.
His victim, believed to be a relative, suffered a deep cut above her eyebrow as a result, officials said.
The teen was taken into custody shortly after the attack, charged with assault in the second degree, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
His name is not being released because of his relationship to the victim.
Cops are looking for two carjackers who swiped a 2006 Range Rover from East 79th Street near Flatlands Avenue recently.
Officials said that a 50-year-old man was parking the vehicle at 8:40 p.m. on November 7 when two unidentified males approached and pulled a gun on him.
The suspects ordered the victim out of the Ranger Rover. They then demanded that he fork over his cell phone before driving away.
No injuries were reported.
Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this heist to come forward.
Calls can be made to the 69th Precinct at (718) 257-6211. All calls will be kept confidential.
Help wipe out graffiti
As the ongoing war against graffiti vandalism continues, cops are now offering a $500 in reward money to anyone with information that can lead them to graffiti vandals.
The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti, which is one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police.
Officials said that cleaning up graffiti is essential to the plan, to show that the community is no longer going to tolerate marred and tagged-up walls and street corners.
According to police, there is a perception that if a community will tolerate graffiti, they will tolerate other criminal activities, such as drug dealing and prostitution.
Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
