Pedaler killed in East Flatbush

Bicyclist killed

A 23-year-old man was killed on April 15 as he rode a bike past the corner of E. 53rd Street and Linden Boulevard.

Cops from the 67th Precinct were called to the corner at 10:45 pm, and found victim James Pierre sprawled out on the ground suffering from a massive head wound.

Paramedics removed Pierre to Kings County Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Witnesses told police that Pierre was pedaling down Linden Boulevard when he was struck by a 2002 Isuzu traveling northbound on E. 53rd Street.

No charges were filed against the 52-year-old operator of the Isuzu.

Dirty janitor

A school custodian was arrested on April 11 after he was accused of molesting a 13-year-old girl attending the Public School of Marketing and Legal Studies on Winthrop Street.

Investigators said that the 32-year-old janitor had sex with the girl repeatedly inside the basement of the school, which is near E. 52nd Street. It was unclear if the intercourse was consensual, but New York law prohibits anyone having sex with anyone under 17.

The custodian was charged with statutory rape and sexual abuse.

Slashed on Flatbush

A dollar van driver attacked a 26-year-old man on Flatbush Avenue on April 15, leaving his victim with deep gashes to his earlobe and cheek.

Four on one

A well-armed criminal quartet pulled a gun on a 27-year-old on E. 53rd Street on April 5, taking $65 and a cellphone.

Bullets and showers

A 14-year-old girl and two adults were wounded on April 3 following a shooting on E. 48th Street.
