Blood on the sand
The well-publicized attack outside of Luna Park was apparently not the only bloodshed spilled in Coney Island this past Memorial Day.
Police from the 60th Precinct said ten teens jumped another adolescent on the sand near Stillwell Avenue, stabbing him repeatedly.
The victim told investigators he was arguing with the suspects when one attacked him at 1:45 pm, leaving him with six stab wounds and a punctured lung.
The victim was rushed to the hospital for treatment as cops arrested a 17-year-old for the attack, charging him with attempted murder, gang assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing. His accomplices remained at large as of this writing.
Cops are investigating a woman’s claims that she had been sexually assaulted — not once, but twice — by the janitor in her building.
The 30-year-old said both confrontations took place either inside the building or in front of the building, which is on Voorhies Avenue near Sheepshead Bay Road.
Both attacks took place between June 3 and June 4, she told investigators.
No arrests had been made.
Wheeling around town
A Mazda MZ6 reported stolen in Mill Island popped up in Brighton Beach on June 2, said police, who arrested the would-be car thief without incident.
Police said someone broke into a car parked in a driveway on East 64th Street, between Mayfair Drive North and Bassett Walk, sometime after 9 pm on May 30, and found a key belonging to the Mazda, which was also sitting in the driveway.
The thief unlocked the Mazda and drove off with it, only to be seen tooling around Brighton 5th Street and Neptune Avenue.
Cops took the 19-year-old into custody, charging him with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
Two thugs are being sought for assaulting a Sheepshead Bay Chinese restaurant owner on June 6 after he asked the two men to quit roughhousing outside his business.
The victim told police that he saw the two men acting up outside his eatery, which is on Avenue V between Ford and Coyle streets, at 12:25 am.
When he went outside and told them to calm down, they attacked, leaving him with a battered face and a cut above his eye.
A 28-year-old man was arrested on June 3 when a catty conversation in Gravesend ended with a man getting clawed.
Police said that the suspect and his victim were arguing inside an address on West 7th Street between 65th Street and Avenue O when the man lunged, leaving him with scratch marks to the face.
Cops called to the scene took the assailant into custody, charging him with assault in the third degree, menacing and harassment.
Cops are investigating a 911 report about a shooting in Sheepshead Bay on June 4.
Police said that they were called to the corner of Avenue X and East 14th Street just after 9:45 pm after a 911 caller said several shots had been fired there.
But when cops arrived, no bullet casings were found.
Cops are now wondering if the noise came from fireworks, not firearms.
Busted for DWI
A 27-year-old was arrested on drunk driving charges on June 7 after he slammed his car into a parked pick-up truck.
Police said their suspect was found behind the wheel of a 1997 Toyota Camry following the 1:40 am collision at the corner of Bay 50th Street and Cropsey Avenue. He was taken into custody when he admitted to hitting the truck and appeared under the influence, police said.
Like old times
An 18-year-old motorist told police last week that someone broke into her car — but not for cell phones, iPods or laptop computers.
The thief wanted the radio.
The victim said that she parked her car near the corner of Shore Parkway and East 26th Street in Sheepshead Bay just before 3:30 pm on June 5. When she returned to her car at 2 am the next morning, her car door had been forced open and her radio, as well as a portable navigation system, had been removed.
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.
