Vampires beware A teen who goes by the name “Blade” is being sought for attacking a 16-year-old boy he allegedly had some cutting argument with. Officials said that Blade, who may be a fan of the Marvel comics character of the same name, allegedly struck a teenager with a pipe during an argument inside the hallway of a building on the 6200 block of 10th Avenue. The attack, officials said, took place just after 8 p.m. on February 2. The victim told police that Blade and two suspects jumped him in the hallway, struck him with a pipe and then threatened that he would be back to “inflict some more pain.” The victim was hospitalized as a result of the attack, but is currently on the mend, officials said. Cops are asking anyone with information about Blade, who is known to frequent Fort Hamilton Parkway between 50th and 60th streets, to come forward. Calls can be made to the 68th Precinct at (718) 439-4211. All calls will be kept confidential.

The assailant was accused of picking up a bat and striking the senior in the right side of the face with it. The senior was rushed to Lutheran Medical Center where she was listed in stable condition after treatment. Her assailant, described by police only as a friend, was still at large as this paper went to press.

Here one minute A 27-year-old woman told police in Dyker Heights that someone made off with her car when it was under the care of an area mechanic. Police were told that the victim had brought her green 1994 Nissan Altima to her mechanic on the 1300 block of 65th Street so he could evaluate the vehicle, which she was planning to sell. The mechanic reportedly had the car overnight, when someone came by and took it, officials were told. Jittery jumper sought A rather anxious mugger is being sought for holding up two people at the corner of 20th and Bay Ridge avenues in Bensonhurst Saturday. Police said that the two victims were waiting at a bus stop just before 11 p.m. on February 3 when a man bundled up for the weather grabbed them. The suspect, raised his shirt, showing the butt of a pistol and demanded the victims’ money, officials said. “If you turn around, I’ll kill you,” the man threatened. The suspect ran off with $230 in cash, his female victim’s purse and a cell phone. The victims said that the mugger was acting “jittery, as if he was on drugs.” No injuries were reported.

Treated like trash An 81-year-old woman was thrown to the ground and robbed of her property as she exited her home on the 2200 block of 62nd Street, officials said. Police said that the senior had just exited her home and was walking down her driveway at 7:15 p.m. on January 30 when an unidentified man pushed her onto the concrete. The man scooped up her purse and ran off, officials said. Police said that the woman’s injuries were minor. Fouled on 4th A 17-year-old woman told police that she was attacked by a box-cutter wielding purse snatcher as she walked with friends past the corner of 4th Avenue and 76th Street. The victim said that she was approaching the corner at 12:20 a.m. on January 28 when the thief, described only as a white male in his twenties, ran up to her with a box-cutter in his hand. Police were told that the man tried to wrestle the bag away from the woman, but quickly gave up and ran off empty-handed, officials said. No injuries were reported. Help wipe out graffiti As the ongoing war against graffiti vandals continues, cops are now offering up to $500 in reward money to anyone who can offer them information that can lead them to anyone who commits graffiti vandalism. The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti vandals. Graffiti is one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police. Officials said that cleaning up graffiti is essential to the plan, to show that the community is no longer going to tolerate marred and tagged-up walls and street corners. According to police there is a perception that if a community will tolerate graffiti, they will tolerate other criminal activities, such as drug dealing and prostitution. Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism is urged to contact either 311 or 911. He has the answers Police are asking the public for help in their search for a man wanted for questioning in a murder that took place in Coney Island last spring. Investigators announced last week that they are trying to track down 24-year-old Michael Soto in connection with a shooting that took place on the 3000 block of Neptune Avenue. Officials allege that an unidentified Hispanic male shot Staten Island resident Melvin Way, 38, at the location at 5:30 a.m. on May 27, 2006. The gunman ran off as Way was taken to Coney Island Hospital, where he died of his injuries. As of this writing, no arrests have been made in this killing. Anyone with information regarding Soto’s whereabouts is urged to call the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential. Stabbing at Shell Bank Two teens were arrested at Shell Bank Junior High School, 2424 Batchelder Street, last week for taking part in the stabbing of a classmate, cops from the 61st Precinct were told last week. Officials said that the two juveniles, who are not being named because of their age, were accused with stabbing a 13-year-old girl with a knife at 10 a.m. on January 29. Police said that the girl was stabbed in the left side of the stomach and suffered a small puncture wound. Her injuries were treated at a local hospital. Investigators later determined that one of the apprehended teens brought the knife to school and gave it to his friend, who allegedly committed the stabbing. Both youths were charged with assault. Centenarian fleeced A 100-year-old woman was robbed of her jewelry, dishes and silverware when she innocently let two women into her home who robbed her blind. The victim, a resident of the 4200 block of Ocean Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, told police that the two women, who called out to her by name, came to her door just before 9 a.m. on December 30. After chatting with them a few moments, she invited them in. That’s when one of the women asked if she could go into the kitchen to get some tissue paper, officials said. After a short visit, the two women left, police were told. It wasn’t until later that night that the senior discovered that $930 in jewelry, along with several other items, had been removed from the home. The woman did not report the incident to police until last week, officials said. Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this theft to call the 61st Precinct at (718) 627-6611. All calls will be kept confidential.
