Today’s news:

Beaten badly in dorm room

The Brooklyn Paper

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Room and gore

Police arrested a 20-year-old accused of viciously beating another man inside his dormitory room on Halloween.

The suspect confronted the victim in a hallway of the building on Johnson Street between Jay and Bridge streets at 1 am, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.

The victim told the alleged assailant that he didn’t want to fight, but investigators say the perp followed the unlucky man into his room and repeatedly punched him in the head, leaving him with a fractured jaw, numerous missing teeth, and contusions and swelling around the eye that required hospital treatment.

The suspect now faces assault, trespassing, harassment, and menacing charges, among other alleged offenses.

Jeep creep

A cop claims he busted a thief trying to break into a car on Oct. 25 — and found him carrying stolen valuables allegedly snatched from another vehicle nearby.

The officer says he saw the 39-year-old suspect attempting to break the window of a 1995 Jeep Cherokee with a screwdriver on Congress Street between Henry and Hicks streets at around 2:10 am, documents from the District Attorney’s office indicate.

When the cop searched the suspect, he recovered two iPhone charges and a plastic bowl — items that were missing from a 1996 Jeep Cherokee with a broken rear window that was parked nearby, investigators say.

Crime of fashion

Two teens tried to steal a hat and a shirt from a Fulton Mall department store on Oct. 26, according to investigators.

The pair allegedly took a shirt and a hat from a display at 7:50 pm then entered a fitting room, where they stashed the goods inside a purse.

But a store employee stopped them on the way out and recovered the goods, according to the District Attorney’s office.

Why don't you ever mention race/description?

Is that because 98% of the crimes are committed by minorities?

This story is such ——. It is way overemphasized and has a clear bias to the "victim." Before you write a story get your facts straight as the victim punched the "assailant" first. It is not the assailants fault the victim picked a fight with the wrong person and got his ass handed to them. The victim is fine and walking around the dorms still. I have seen him still trying to flirt with girls and engage in normal activity. Fractured seems like such a big word, but it is only a miniscule crack and the victim still eats and functions normally. Before you ruin the "assailant's" life by posting up a one-sided slanderous story, look into the facts because he will be kicked out of college for —— like this.

Okay I don't care that your diploma in English inclines you to comment on my writing style. Regardless, the facts of this story are wrong and does not correctly portray what actually happened. The kid who got hit is fine and this writer should not add psuedo-drama to the story. As it is his/her duty to write a clean story.
