Compiled by Paul Bisceglio LATE NIGHT PEN STABBING After a fight with a teenage stranger, a 32-year-old man walked into Metropolitan Hospital on Sunday night with puncture wounds that he believes were caused by a pen. According to the victim, the teen confronted him on Second Avenue around 1:45 a.m., asking "What you looking at?" and then attempting to punch him. The victim blocked the punch and pulled the teen to the ground, where the teen began stabbing him in the back with an unknown object. The teen then fled the scene, and the man left for the hospital for treatment. EARLY MORNING BREAK-IN A 55-year-old man found a burglar in his living room on Saturday morning after he woke up to noises in his East 83rd Street apartment. The thief is suspected to have entered the apartment via the fire escape at around 8 a.m., and struck the resident with a dumbbell when he appeared, cutting his head. The thief then nabbed the resident's wallet, which contained credit cards and $500 cash, and fled through the apartment's front door. According to the victim, the thief was a 30-year-old white man, roughly 200 lbs. and bald with light skin. DIRT BIKE THIEF A 31-year-old pedestrian videotaping a group of dirt bikers with his smart phone on Sunday was surprised when one of the riders drove by and snatched the phone from his hand. The theft occurred around 5:30 p.m. the corner of Second Avenue and East 60th Street, and the robber fled across the Queensboro Bridge. The phone, a Samsung Galaxy S III, was worth $150. BAD PLACE FOR A NAP An East 90th Street resident ran into something unusual in his building's elevator at 2 a.m. on Friday: someone sleeping. The 24-year-old resident shook the drowsy 28-year-old awake, and the dozer returned the favor by punching the resident in the face. Police found the resident bleeding from the nose and arrested the sleeper for assault. Reportedly, the sleeper was returning from visiting a friend in the building. ROBBER FOR HIRE A day laborer may have decided to forgo a paycheck last week and leave with his employer's $5,000 Rolex watch instead. The employer, a 67-year-old man, hired the laborer to do brief construction work in his Second Avenue apartment last Wednesday morning, and left him there alone to go to the gym. When the employer returned, he found the laborer gone and his watch, a gold onyx ring, a drill set and a bunch of cash missing. Overall, the resident lost roughly $10,000. No description of the suspected robber was given, and the building had no video surveillance to record the theft.
