Grabbed on delivery

Cops believe a UPS employee was skimming products left off at the company’s Foster Avenue drop-off hub — and arrested him for it on Dec. 5.

Workers at the facility near E. 104th Street said the employee took four watches and a pair of sunglasses about to be shipped out at about 6 pm.

Cops caught up with him the next day, charging him with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

Machete maniac

A thug attacked and threatened another man with a machete during an E. 89th Street argument on Dec. 5.

Witnesses told police that the two men were arguing near Glenwood Road at 8 am when the suspect punched his victim in the face. He then grabbed a machete and chased the man down the block, neighbors told police.

Lights out
