CHELSEA — A man threw milk at a 22-year-old woman and her friend because he believed they were taking pictures of him — but they were actually taking selfies, police said.
The woman told police that she and her friend were taking photos of themselves on a subway bench of an A train platform in the 14th Street station at about noon on May 8, the NYPD said.
Suddenly a man described as 45 to 50 years old with long, straight blond hair and brown eyes started cursing and yelling "stop taking pictures of me" — before throwing milk at the pair, police said.
No one was injured. Police searched the area but did not find the man, the NYPD said.
Other recent crimes in the 10th Precinct include:
► Two men stole a BMW Zipcar from Imperial Parking, a parking garage at 252 Seventh Ave., near West 25th Street, police said.
Two men who "looked scary and dangerous" approached an attendant at the garage at about 2 a.m. on May 9, asked for a car and said they had a reservation, police said.
The attendant complied and scanned out the car, even though he knew they didn't have a reservation, police said.
The gray BMW 528 sedan, valued at $52,845, was tracked to Brooklyn, authorities said.
"If I see the guy who took the car, I'm going to beat the hell out of him," said Julio Mercedes, manager of Imperial Parking.
"As a matter of policy, we do not comment on investigations that are on-going," Zipcar said through a spokeswoman.
This is the second theft of a BMW Zipcar this month, according to police records.
► Police are looking for a man who threatened a driver by claiming he was a police officer "and could put a bullet in his head," the NYPD said.
The 33-year-old victim was driving on East 36th Street at 8:20 a.m. on May 9 when a man in a green SUV behind him honked repeatedly and tried to pass him.
After the victim waved the man along, telling him to pass, the suspect pulled up beside him, waved papers with what appeared to be a police insignia and told him he was a police officer and threatened him, NYPD said.
