CALL FOR INFO: 347-468-0577 104th Precinct Ridgewood, Glendale, Maspeth and Middle Village Two men rough up owners of Maspeth’s famous Goodfellas Diner after refusing to pay for food Even mobsters paid their check before leaving. Two cheapskates who dined and dashed earlier this month at a Maspeth restaurant — then beat up the eatery’s owners when they tried to collect the bill — remain at large, according to police. The incident took place at 7:50 a.m. on Oct. 1 at the Goodfellas Diner located at 56-26 Maspeth Ave. Formerly known as the Clinton Diner, the restaurant had a starring role in “Goodfellas,” the acclaimed 1989 Martin Scorsese mob film starring Robert DeNiro and Ray Liotta. According to authorities, the two suspects ate breakfast and attempted to leave without paying. When the 70-year-old male owner tried to prevent the pair from leaving the diner, he was punched in the face by one of the suspects. Moments later, the 67-year-old female owner tried to write down the license plate number of the car, law enforcement agents said. The first suspect then snatched the writing pad from her hand and threw her to the ground. He then got into a nearby car with the second suspect, and they fled southbound on Rust Street. Officers from the 104th Precinct responded; the female owner was removed to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. She suffered a broken arm and a dislocated shoulder. The first individual has been described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, weighing 180 pounds, last seen wearing a blue jacket and darkcolored pants. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, weighing 200 pounds, with a beard, last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater and gray sweatpants.

According to police, 39-year-old Hitesh Arora was driving in the vicinity of 11-24 Borden Ave at 10:04 p.m., when his car stalled. Arora, who has been on the force for three years at a Brooklyn precinct, was driving his own car when it got stuck on the LIRR tracks on Borden Avenue. When police and FDNY arrived, they smelled alcohol on his breath and saw that he was “unsteady on his feet,” an NYPD spokesperson said. Arora then refused a breathalyzer test. He was charged with first-degree DWI, obstructing a highway railroad crossing and refusal to take a breath test, police said. According to the Queens District Attorney’s office, he was issued a desk appearance ticket. A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office said she does not yet have the official court date for Arora. 109th Precinct Bayside, College Point, Flushing and Whitestone Elderly man in Flushing is fatally struck by an SUV while trying to cross a busy intersection A 79-year-old man was struck and killed by an SUV in Flushing on Sunday evening, according to police.
