Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

Tough girl

Police arrested a 22-year-old woman who they say robbed a man on Flatbush Avenue on May 17 — taking the man’s cellphone.

The victim told police that he was between Avenues T and U at 1 pm when the woman began punching him in the face. She then snagged the phone from his hand and fled, said cops.

Batter up

A 37-year-old man was arrested for beating another man with a baseball bat on Avenue K on May 19.

The victim told police that he was between Utica Avenue and E. 49th Street at shortly after 8 am when someone struck him across his back with a baseball bat.

Police arrested a man who they say had two baseball bats on him.

Car crook

Cops arrested a 24-year-old man for stealing a radio out of a man’s car that was parked along National Drive on May 19.

The victim told police that he was between E. 66th Street and Whitman Drive at around 1:15 am when he saw a man walking away from his 2002 Jaguar. When he inspected his vehicle, he found that his XM Satellite Radio was missing, his belongings were scattered on the floor of the car, and his interior lights were left on.

The victim also told police that he detected the odor of an unfamiliar men’s perfume inside his snazzy sports car, and when he confronted the suspect, he smelled the same cologne.

BB busted

A 22-year-old man was arrested for shooting an unmarked police vehicle with a BB gun on Flatbush Avenue on May 16.

The officer was driving down Flatbush Avenue near Avenue S in an unmarked police vehicle at around 8 am when a BB pellet ricochetted off of his car window. Suspecting that the shot came from a nearby rooftop, the officer went to investigate and found the suspect, who was in possession of a BB gun and around 50 pellets, cops said.
