Man nearly killed in bloody 63rd Street skirmish

Deep cuts

A 41-year-old left another man with a near-fatal neck wound on Oct. 25 during a skirmish on 63rd Street.

The victim was between 16th and 17th avenues at 3:20 pm when he said he got into an argument with his future assailant.

After a brief shouting match, the 41-year-old lunged, striking his victim repeatedly with a metal pipe. He then stabbed his victim in the neck with a box cutter.

The victim was rushed to a local hospital with serious injuries, and the 41-year-old was charged with attempted murder, police said.

Scissor swinger

A 19-year-old woman was arrested on W. 24th Street on Oct. 23 after she stabbed another woman in the shoulder with a pair of scissors.

The two women were arguing between Mermaid and Surf avenues at 1 am when the scissor swinger attacked, leaving her opponent with a deep cut.

Responding officers charged her with assault in the second degree.

Three on one

Three thieves ganged up on a 19-year-old on E. 26th Street on Oct. 19 and ran off with the young man’s credit cards.

The victim was nearing Avenue X at 2:43 pm when the suspects surrounded him and forced him to hand over the cards.

Benz breaker busted

A 17-year-old thief was caught breaking into a Mercedes Benz parked on Dunne Court on Oct. 23.

The owner of the luxury car said she woke up at 2:45 am and looked out the window to her home, which isbetween E. Seventh Street and Coney Island Avenue, only to find the thief rooting through her vehicle, which was parked right in front of her window.

When she banged on her window, the thief ran off. But he didn’t get far, said police, who apprehended the thief a short time later.

Beaten and robbed

A thug attacked his 44-year-old girlfriend during a skirmish on W. Second Street on Oct. 24.

The victim told police she was embroiled in an argument with her beau in their home, which is between Avenue X and Avenue Y, at 10:30 am when he struck her in the face, broke their computer and fled with her 2005 Hyundai.

Cops were still trying to track the thief down by late Tuesday.

No laughing matter

A thief who broke into a W. 16th Street apartment back on Sept. 19 gave his victim ample warning — a text that said he was going to the home to “have a laugh,” police said.

The victim, however, wasn’t laughing when she went to her home, which is between Bay 50th Street and Avenue Z, and found that the lock had been forced and her things rifled through. A laptop computer and $2,000 had been taken, the woman told police.

The 38-year-old thief wasn’t through with her, however. He reportedly texted her again later that night, threatening to harm her if she reported the burglary or a previous crime she saw the thief commit.

Detectives from the 60th Precinct caught up with the thief this week, charging him with burglary, criminal trespass and tampering with a witness.

Joyce Leslie loot

A worker at an 86th Street Joyce Leslie was arrested this week for siphoning from her cash drawer.

Workers at the store, which is between 21st Avenue and Bay Parkway, claim the woman took nearly $3,000 after generating a series of fake cash refunds to customers that never existed.

When questioned, the woman admitted to the theft, claiming she needed the money to care for her autistic son.

Glass houses

A thief busted through the skylight of an E. 19th Street home on Oct. 15, taking an assortment of jewelry.

The homeowner said she left her house, which is between Avenues Y and Z, at 2 pm.

When she returned at 8:30 pm, she found nothing wrong until she went to her bedroom, which was left covered with glass shards.

Birthday bash

A birthday party at the Any Way Cafe ended in bloodshed on Oct. 12 when a fight broke out inside the Oriental Boulevard restaurant.

Festivities were in full swing at 12:30 am when the 46-year-old victim’s ex-girlfriend — and her new boyfriend — joined the celebration.

After a few sharp words, the new beau attacked the victim with a small table, leaving him hospitalized, police said.
