Police: Teen steals, then totals, car

Joy ride

Police arrested an 18-year-old girl who they say stole a car belonging to her brother’s girlfriend on Avenue K on Sept. 8 — and then totaled it after a booze-fueled joy ride.

The victim told police that she fell asleep inside her apartment between Flatbush Avenue and E. 38th Street at 3 am, but not before checking that her 2012 Honda Accord was parked outside and that her car keys were safely stashed in her purse, which was inside her home.

When she awoke at 9 am the next day, however, she found that her keys and car had inexplicably vanished. As it turns out, her boyfriend’s sister had been arrested shortly before 8 am, for smashing the victim’s vehicle after a booze-filled night of revelry, cops said.

Gang violence

Two men, ages 18 and 19, were arrested for participating in a gang beating of a man on Ralph Avenue on Sept. 25.

The victim told police that he was between Bergen Avenue and E. 73rd Street at 3:30 pm when the suspects and a gaggle of goons attacked, punching and kicking him, and slashing him across the stomach with a knife.
