Today’s news:

Flatbush slash-a-rama

Attacked with bottle

A woman was attacked with a shattered glass bottle as she argued with another woman at the corner of Linden Boulevard and Utica Avenue recently.

Police said that Emma Jones, 58, was charged with assault in the first degree shortly after the 8:20 am attack on April 3.

She reportedly lashed out at her victim with the broken bottle, leaving her with a deep cut in the face.

More slashed faces

Cops were called to a Rogers Avenue home on April 12 after a 47-year-old attacked another man with a knife.

The victim told police he was arguing with 47-year-old Curtis Granger on Rogers Avenue between Avenue D and Clarendon Road just before 9:30 am when Granger allegedly pulled a knife and lunged, catching the victim’s face.

The victim suffered a deep cut to his face, police said.

Nabbed for burglary

A 21-year-old was arrested April 7 in connection with a burglary eight months ago.

Police said that the victim was just steps from her home on East 28th Street between Farragut and Glenwood roads at 12:55 am on Aug. 5, 2009 when she saw Emmanuel LaForest allegedly sneaking out through a bedroom window into the back yard.

LaForest was reportedly stuffing handbags into a larger duffel bag that hung around his neck.

The victim said that she ran out and chased LaForest, but he ran off into the night, with her handbags and laptop computer.

When LaForest resurfaced earlier this month cops took him into custody, charging him with burglary in the second degree.

Not very sincere

Edwill Sincere isn’t a cop. He just pretends to be one, police alleged.

The 21-year-old was arrested on Flatbush Avenue April 2 after he was caught in a car allegedly with a Smith & Wesson revolver and a pair of handcuffs.

Cops said that they looked into the car while it sat between Church and Snyder avenues and saw the gun, as well as numerous rounds of ammunition, in the seat next to Sincere, who also had an NYPD operator card, police alleged.

Sincere was arrested after investigators learned that he is not with the NYPD.

Cops charged him with criminal possession of a weapon, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

Kidnapped in own home

Brazen thieves broke into a Flatlands woman’s home and terrorized her at gunpoint April 5, officials said.

The victim said that she was sleeping inside her East 54th Street home between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue I at 3:30 am when the thieves forced their way inside.

The goons tied her up, demanded her money and pistol-whipped her when she didn’t answer fast enough, she said.

They ultimately fled with the woman’s purse, cell phone and some electronics.

By late Monday, cops were still looking for the gunmen. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call (718) 258-4411. All calls will be kept confidential.

Shot in Kensington

Three men were wounded last week following a shooting in Kensington.

Officials said that the victims were nearing the corner of East 16th Street and Caton Avenue at 11:50 pm April 7 when an unidentified gunman opened fire.

All three victims were rushed to Kings County Hospital where they were listed in stable condition. None of the injuries was considered life-threatening.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call the 70th Precinct at (718) 851-5511. All calls will be kept confidential.

Death ‘inconclusive’

Further tests will be needed to determine just how a 30-year-old Kensington man died last week.

A spokesperson from the city’s medical examiner’s office said Yuriy Tsilo’s cause of death was still unclear because they haven’t received the results of several toxicology tests, which can take a few weeks to finish.

Tsilo, 30, was found dead in his Dahill Road apartment near Clara Street at 8 am on April 6.

While he reportedly had a gash on his head, his death did not appear suspicious, cops at the scene said.

Wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti vandalism continues, cops are now offering a $500 reward 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 in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
