Life for smokers in Carroll Gardens just got a little more dangerous.

A 29-year-old woman was smoking on a sidewalk along Luquer Street at around 9:50 pm on Sunday night when a man came up to her and asked for a cigarette. But when she denied his request, he stabbed her, possibly with an ice pick, reports DNAinfo.

An ice pick!

She was rushed south to Lutheran Medical Center in Sunset Park. So far there haven’t been any updates on her condition or the status of the nicotine-starved attacker.

But elsewhere in the 76th precinct, Urban Outfitters on Atlantic Avenue reported a theft of almost $300 worth of shirts, fitted caps, and a bag earlier this month. So, Brooklynites, be on the lookout for someone in a cat shirt accessorizing with an effortlessly cool ice pick.
