Cabbie Assaults Traffic Agent

Some road rage incidents take place curbside. At 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, April 24, a 27-year-old male NYPD traffic agent was writing a parking ticket for a taxi parked on the northeast corner of Church and Fulton Streets when the cabbie poured hot coffee on the agent and then punched him in the mouth, police said. The crabby cabbie then got back into his vehicle, and took off northbound on Church Street. The agent was treated by a Fire Department EMS team at the scene. Police were searching for the driver.

Bar Fight

A perceived slight turned into a fight at a pub, resulting in one arrest, police said. At 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, a 46-year-old man struck a 40-year-old man in the face with a glass cup, cutting the victim’s left eyebrow, cheek and neck. The assault went down inside Ulysses Folk House at 95 Pearl St., and the victim was transported to Bellevue Hospital for treatment by EMS personnel. Youngjun Seo was arrested and charged with assault. Police said he later told officers, “He disrespected my girlfriend, so I hit him.”

Forced Entry

Thieves broke into yet another van making deliveries downtown. At 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, a 56-year-old man was making deliveries at 139 Fulton St. When he returned to his van 30 minutes later, the back door latch had been tampered with and merchandise was missing. The stolen goods amounted to $9,268. Police are looking for two men suspected in the burglary.


Hat and sweater season is almost over, but try telling that to two shoplifters. At 12:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 29, two men entered the Prada store at 575 Broadway, took two sweaters and two hats worth a total of $3,170 from a shelf, put the items in their own shopping bags and took off.

Sorry Ilori

Prada seemed to be a hot label for shoplifters recently. At 5:19 p.m. on Sunday, April 29, an individual took five pairs of Prada sunglasses totaling $2,300 from a display case in the Ilori store at 138 Spring Street and left the store without paying.
