68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Pedal punk

A thug on a bike snatched a teenaged girl’s jewelry off of her neck on 86th Street on March 22.

The 15-year-old girl told cops that she was hanging with friends in front of a home between Third and Fourth avenues at 3:05 pm when the thief rolled up behind her, shoved her in the chest, and told her, “Move b----.” He then yanked three chains, valued at $540, off of her neck and rode away, turning left onto Third Avenue. At that point, another man approached the girl.

“What’s wrong, that guy robbed you?” the man inquired, before taking off himself and turning right onto Third. Police are looking for both men.

Bedroom break-in

A crook ransacked a woman’s vanity stand in her 14th Avenue apartment on March 22 — taking off with a collection of jewelry worth $2,700.

The victim told police that she left her apartment near 64th Street at 8:20 am. When she returned at 3:15 pm, she saw that someone had made off with her watches, rings, earrings, and necklaces.


A thief made out like a bandit after breaking into a 64th Street house on March 22 — taking roughly $1,000 in cash and coins.

The victim told police that someone entered her home between 10th and 11th avenues before 3:30 pm, when she discovered that the doors had been jimmied open, and her money was gone.

A witness told police that she saw a man enter the house at 1:30 pm. She questioned the man, who said he was delivering something but had the wrong address and left. A second witness says she saw a man leaving the house at 2 pm.

Bottle bashing

A thug chucked a glass bottle at a man outside of an Internet cafe on Fort Hamilton Parkway before striking the man in the face on March 19.

The victim told cops that he was outside of the Always Internet Cafe between 62nd and 63rd streets at 10:30 pm when a group of men approached him and told him to stop taking their picture.

A moment later one member of the crew hurled the bottle at the victim and punched him, leaving the victim with a bloody lip and a pain in his eye.
