Big Smack

One man may think twice before trying to stop a fight between two women again. Just after midnight Saturday, July 1, a 59-year-old man was inside the McDonald’s restaurant at 160 Broadway when he tried to break up a fight between two 30-year-old women. His peace-keeping attempts were rewarded with a metal flask hitting the right side of his face. One of the two women also punched and bit him. Police were unable to locate the warring women in the neighborhood later.

Not Very Constructive

A verbal dispute turned violent at a local construction site. At around noon Friday, June 30, a 25-year-old man had a verbal dispute with a 29-year-old man at a construction site inside 155 Mercer St. The 25-year-old later told police that the older man left the room before returning with a knife, swinging it multiple times and stabbing the younger man in his right leg, cutting him. Jeremiah Peters was arrested June 30 and charged with assault.

Cologne “On Loan”

It seems that there will be a lot of sweet-smelling dudes in the neighborhood soon. At 1:58 p.m. on Saturday, June 17, eight men entered the Abercrombie & Fitch store at 199 Water St. and took 46 bottles of cologne totaling $5,268 from displays, racks, and shelves that they placed into shopping bags before leaving without paying.

Gillette Threat

At 7:50 a.m. on Sunday, June 25, a man entered the Duane Reade store at 250 Broadway and took 17 packages of Prilosec valued at $578, two Nexium tabs worth $50, plus a large quantity of Gillette Fusion razors and blades amounting to $1,273. The total stolen came to $1,901.

Cadillac Attack

A thief went to town using an out-of-towner’s credit cards. At 5:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 29, a 40-year-old woman from Norwalk, Connecticut, reported to police that her wallet was taken while she was sitting in the Joe Coffee shop inside the Cadillac House on Hudson Street. She told police that she had her wallet when she entered the location, but someone took it from her bag after she hung it on the back of her chair. She canceled her missing credit cards, but unauthorized charges totaling $10,498.14 turned up at Saks Fifth Avenue New York City. Also stolen was a quantity of cash, a wallet, a Connecticut driver’s license and a Metro-North monthly card.
