A gunman opened fire on an E. 100th Street home on April 4, punching five bullets into its facade.

Two young punks were arrested on April 1 after they tried to hold up a young man on Remsen Avenue.

Church creeper busted
This guy is going straight to the hot place.
A 47-year-old man was arrested on April 4 after he was caught stealing pieces of an air conditioner belonging to an E. 96th Street church.
Witnesses spotted the man pulling the air conditioner from the back window of Liberty Hall Church, which is between Avenues K and L, at 4:30 pm.
Cops caught up with the thief, charging him with criminal mischief and petit larceny, after he was seen removing the front cover and another part from the air conditioner — and putting the items in a shopping cart he had with him.
A 43-year-old woman was arrested on March 31 after she attacked a man inside an Avenue L restaurant.
The victim told police that he was inside the eatery, located near E. 93rd Street, when she got into an argument with the woman at 10:33 pm.
As the argument drew on, the outraged woman smashed a glass against her victim’s face, leaving him with a slight injury.
Rapping the knuckles
Police arrested a 41-year-old who attacked another woman with a wooden baton during a March 30 clash on E. 108th Street.

Four on one
A criminal quartet jumped a 16-year-old on E. 40th Street on March 31, taking $120, his cellphone and some jewelry.
The victim was nearing Hubbard Place at 2:50 pm when the thieves stopped him, grabbed his sweatshirt and rifled thorough his pockets.
Stopping the pain
A thug with a revolver raided an Avenue N pharmacy on April 1 — taking an assortment of painkillers.
Workers at the Mill Basin drug store said the thief entered at 2:20 pm, pulled his gun and ordered employees to empty the cash register and fill a bag he was carrying with painkillers.
The thief then fled, not harming anyone.
Investigators believe the thief was the same man who raided another Avenue N pharmacy near E. 34th Street on March 17.
Two goons pulled a gun on a 19-year-old walking along Avenue M on April 2, taking his two bags of groceries.
The thieves placed the muzzle of gun to the back of the victim’s head at 5:27 am and demanded his money, but ran off with the groceries after the victim dropped them.
Three months gone
Police are trying to find a 34-year-old E. 89th Street resident who’s been missing since January.
Police said that Chad Price, who’s 6-foot-4-inches tall and has a dark complexion, lives alone, but in an apartment above his cousin. Yet, neither his cousin nor anyone else has seen or heard from him for three months.
Anyone with information regarding Price’s disappearance is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
