Police Blotter, Week of Nov. 20, 2014

A screen grab from a surveillance video provided by police, showing the alleged attempted-rape suspect inside the E. Sixth St. building on Dec. 28.

Flasher dash
Police say that a man was caught running down the street in his birthday suit at about 4 a.m. on Thurs., Nov. 13. Officers arrested James Andrepont, 40, in front of 24 Greenwich Ave. and charged him with public lewdness, a misdemeanor.

Another stab at crime
A recidivist known to local law enforcement received a new felony rap after he appeared with a kitchen knife on a public sidewalk in front of 425 W. 13th St. Edward Howard, 43, told police at about 11:55 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 13, that the knife was meant for personal protection, police said. Officers nonetheless charged him with criminal possession of a weapon.

Train in vain
A man caught moving between cars on the L train found himself in bigger trouble with the law. Police said that at about 11:56 p.m. on Fri., Nov. 14, Vincent Torres, 52, was arrested at the subway station at Eighth Ave. and W. 14th St. A search turned up a small folding knife clipped to his belt, plus a fixed blade in his bag. Torres, who police say is a transit recidivist, was charged with weapon possession.

Charges to go around
Police said that around 4:25 a.m. on Sat., Nov. 15, Joseph Kee, 30, kicked and stomped a man, 28, at the northeast corner of Seventh Ave. South and Grove St., while Toshiba Roach, 34, punched a woman, 30, in the face, causing swelling and a strong sting.

Police said another man, Joshua Rossi, got in officers’ way as they tried to intervene. He was arrested and charged him with obstruction of government administration. Roach and Kee were charged with misdemeanor assault. The two victims refused medical attention at the scene.
