78th Precinct

Park Slope

Scoot and run

A jerk beat up a woman on Carroll Street on Nov. 14.

The 29-year-old victim told cops that she was near Fiske Place when a man on a scooter rode up and shouted, “Give it up!” He then grabbed her $200 iPhone, pushed her down — and rode away, leaving the poor lady with cuts and scrapes.

Bed burglar

A jerk stole thousands of dollars from an apartment of Fifth Avenue on Nov. 19.

The 54-year-old victim told cops that he left his home near 14th Street at 6:30 pm, then came back the next day at 8 am. That was enough time for the crook to snatch $20, 000 from under his bed.

No windows or doors were broken.

Got school’d

A crook snatched some school supplies from a student on Fourth Avenue on Nov. 19.

The 26-year-old victim told cops that he was near 11th Street at 6:15 am when a man ran up and ripped a backpack full of books off his shoulder.

Book him

A thief stole a wallet from a customer at a book shop on Seventh Avenue on Nov. 18.

The 30-year-old victim told cops that she had set her wallet inside her stroller at Barnes and Noble near Sixth Street at 1:10 pm, then walked away for 20 minutes. That was enough time for the jerk to snatch her pocketbook — along with the $11 inside.

Tuned out

A crafty crook jacked a fancy TV and more from an apartment on 15th Street on Nov. 16.

The 41-year-old victim told cops that she had locked her home near Fourth Avenue at 9 am before leaving for the day. She came back at 4:30 pm and discovered her $1,200 flat-screen TV and $4,000 worth of jewelry gone.

Her rear window was ajar.

Sad song

A crook jacked two musical instruments from a car parked on the quiet stretch of Flatbush Avenue near the Prospect Park Zoo on Nov. 15.

The 52-year-old victim told cops that she had locked two violins worth $2,200 inside her 2008 Range Rover near Empire Boulevard at 9 am, then came back at 6 pm. That’s when she discovered the pretty violins — and $200 worth of clothes — gone.
