Flat fiend

A 63-year-old man was arrested for puncturing the tires of a man’s car on E. 27th Street on May 20.

A witness told police that he was inside his apartment between Avenues Y and Z at 4:15 am when he heard a popping noise coming from outside. He looked out the window and saw a man deflating the tires of a 2004 Chevrolet pick-up truck.

Driving drunk

Cops arrested a 28-year-old man on the Shore Parkway on May 20 — for driving under the influence.

The arresting officer was near Bedford Avenue at 5:19 am when he saw a driver blow through a red light in his 2004 Infiniti FX35.

When he pulled him over, the driver smelled of alcohol and showed visible signs of intoxication — including blood-shot eyes.

Purse snatcher

A 42-year-old woman was arrested for walking away with another woman’s purse inside of a Coyle Street grocery store on April 27.

The victim told police that she was inside the market between Avenues U and V at around 3 pm when she set her bag down and left it unattended.

Police say a woman then told an employee at the market that she had lost her bag, and the manager gave her the victim’s purse.

Safe away

Police say a 35-year-old man for robbed a McDonald Avenue autobody shop on May 6 — and managed to walk out with the safe.

Surveillance footage from the shop between Avenues W and X shows a person entering through a window at 3:55 pm —then grabbing the safe and walking out the door, cops said.
