Donation deception

A thief disguised as a charity case asked a guy for $2, but then snatched the man’s wallet right out of his hands as he went to hand over a few bucks on Aug. 28.

The victim told cops he was sitting on a park bench at Court and Montague streets at around 2 am when the thief approached and asked for the donation. The man took out his wallet, and the thief made his move and took off into the Borough Hall station. But the thief didn’t make much of a profit; the wallet only contained $17.

Where: Court Street and Montague Street
