88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill


Police cuffed a guy who they say punched an officer in the face after hopping a Flatbush Avenue subway turnstile on Oct. 28.

The 20-year-old suspect jumped over the turnstile in the station near Fulton Street a little after midnight and when the officer tried to stop him, he socked him in the face, according to authorities. The officer tried to detain the suspect but he kept flailing, and when he finally arrested him, found a small glassine of alleged coke in his pant’s pocket, cops said.

Sneak attack

Some goon hit a guy in the head outside a Clifton Place bar on Oct. 26, police said.

The victim told cops he was leaving the pub near Grand Avenue at about 1 am when the snake hit him in the back of the head with an unknown object and then fled. The victim didn’t see who hit him and doctors had to put three staples in his head, according to authorities.

Car raider

A sneak stole a city employee’s cellphone from his car parked on Quincy Street on Oct. 22, police said.

The victim told cops he had left his work phone in the car he left unlocked near Classon Avenue a little before 1 pm to do some car inspections and when he returned a little after 1 pm, it was gone, according to authorities.

Stroller scoundrel

A good-for-nothing stole a woman’s purse from a stroller in a S. Oxford Street park on Oct. 22, police said.

The 71-year-old victim told police she was talking on the phone in the green space near Atlantic Avenue at about 3:10 pm when she left her orange Coach pouch in the stroller unattended and the baddie snatched it — with her credit card, identification card, and visa — inside it. The sneak swiped her credit cards at three stores, police said.

Locker looter

A jerk stole a woman’s jar of quarters from her locker inside a DeKalb Avenue hospital overnight on Oct. 23, police said.

The victim told cops she had left the jar with $3,000 in coins in her locker at the medical center near Willoughby Street when her shift started a little before 9 pm, and when she returned to her locker the next day at 6 am, it was gone, even though she is the only person with a key to open it, according to authorities.
