Property apocalypse

Cops arrested two women, ages 21 and 19, for going on a rampage inside a woman’s Surf Avenue apartment on May 19 — destroying more than $250 worth of property.

The victim told police that she was inside her home near W. 30th Street at 1:40 pm when the women entered and damaged her TV, computer, cable box, table, desk, and clothing by allegedly using bleach.

Hennesy horror

A 30-year-old man was arrested for public intoxication on W. 25th Street on May 19.

According to the arresting officers, the man was between Mermaid and Surf avenues at 2 am, drinking liquor out of an open bottle. Witnesses told the officers that the man had thrown an empty bottle of Hennesy on the ground.

Criminal allure

Two men, ages 20 and 17, were arrested for robbing a man on Surf Avenue on May 18, after luring the victim to the scene by posing as a woman on tagged.com.

The victim told police that he went to meet a woman, Jenny S — who he’d met on the dating web site — at her apartment near W. 21st Street at 8:55 pm. However, when he got there, he found that the apartment number she gave him didn’t exist.

As he was exiting the building, the two men approached him, drew a pistol, and took his cash and Samsung cellphone.

Lexus lost

Police arrested a 23-year-old man for stealing another man’s car on Surf Avenue on May 17.

The victim told police that he’d parked his 2004 Lexus between W. Eighth and W. Fifth streets at 5:50 pm, and when he returned later, it was missing.

Officials arrested a suspect after the vehicle had been reported stolen, and an officer saw a man driving the missing car without a license plate.
