Woman strangled after argument

A woman was arrested after an argument with her girlfriend turned physical outside a bar, police said.

Cops said the incident happened at around 8 p.m. on Sept. 24 at the corner of West 4th Street and Eighth Avenue.

The 22-year-old victim claimed that her girlfriend became irate after an argument and strangled her, causing pain and bruising to her neck. The victim also said that she tried several times to leave the area, but the other woman didn’t let her.

Elixandria Brienza, 25, was later arrested for felony strangulation in the first- and second-degree.

Tapas bar bag thief

A man was arrested two weeks after a restaurant employee’s bag went missing at work, according to police.

On Sept. 12, at 5 p.m. at Las Ramblas tapas bar, located at 170 West 4 St., a female employee put her bag down in the waitress work station in the rear of the restaurant. Several minutes later, cops said, she noticed that her bag was gone.

Her bag contained a Marc Jacobs wallet, a debit card, a Nordstrom store credit card and other personal items.

Two weeks later, on Sept. 26, cops picked up Sotomayor Miguel, 52, for the theft; he was booked for felony grand larceny.

Police said there were no charges made on the stolen cards.

Thief walked right through unlocked door

The man then fled on foot through the building’s front door and in an unknown direction. Police say he got way with about $1,500 in cash. Camera footage was available at the scene.

On Sept. 23, Christopher Lyles, 25, was arrested for felony burglary.
