‘Cane’ mutiny

Two patrons of the popular Flatbush Avenue nightspot Sugar Cane attacked a bartender and a customer with broken bottles and glasses in a melee early on Sept. 5.

The always-thumping nightclub burst into some real action at around 1:40 am when two women — intoxicated, according to the police reporter — got unruly. It’s unclear what happened next, but at some point, the women slashed the bartender and the customer with bottles, causing lacerations.

Cops said they nabbed their drunken duo while it was still at the bar, which is one door away from Sixth Avenue.

Lapped up

A thief grabbed a portable computer out of a Fourth Avenue apartment on Sept. 4.

Cops say that the burglar entered through an unlocked door in the unit, which is at 12th Street, between 11 am and 6 pm.


A New York Methodist Hospital patient who left her bag unattended while she used a bathroom on Aug. 29 returned to find it gone.

The 55-year-old victim told cops that the bag contained more than $1,000 in gold rings and necklaces.

It is unclear why she was at the Sixth Street medical center.

‘Radio’ call

Cops quickly nabbed three men who burst into the Radio Shack on Seventh Avenue, pulled a knife and stole thousands of dollars of equipment on Sept. 1.

Police say that the three men — ages 22, 22 and 20 — entered the store, which is at Fifth Street, at around 11:30 am. One of the men used a knife to deter any heroism from the staff while the other two pilfered the display cases.

The terrible trio then left and jumped into a waiting car, but cops caught up with the two of the men on Fifth Street and another on Fourth Street.
