    The 47-year-old homeless woman was arrested for stalking on April 13 after she stormed past the staff at the West Village gym and surprised Jackman as he was pumping iron, throwing an electric razor filled with her own pubic hair at him.

    It's unclear what Thurston allegedly stole but she can at least take heart with this: Prosecutors did drop charges of menacing and criminal weapons-possession.

    Thurston remains jailed in lieu of a $7,500 bond. Her next court date is scheduled for May 8.
