62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Jaw breaker

A thug broke a man’s jaw on New Utrecth Avenue on June 5.

The victim told police that he was near 61st Street at 3 pm when the goon punched him in the face, breaking his jaw.

Spare the stick

A heartless jerk beat a 14-year-old kid with a stick on Avenue P on June 4.

The victim told police that he was between W. 11th and W. 12th streets on his way home at 2:30 pm when the thug bashed him on the back of his head with a stick.

Quiet burglar

A thief stole into a woman’s apartment on 21st Avenue on June 5 — taking her pocketbook from the very bedroom she was sleeping in.

The victim told police that she was asleep in the bedroom of her apartment between Cropsey and Bath avenues at 4 pm when she woke up. That’s when she realized her bedroom window was open, and the air condition unit had been pushed to the floor.

She then realized that her pocketbook was missing, along with the $800 and credit cards it contained.

Hold ’em and rob ’em

Two thugs robbed a man on Bay 17th Street on June 8 — taking his wallet, which contained a measly $25.

The victim told police that he was between Shore Parkway and Cropsey Avenue at 8 pm when the goons ambushed him, one of them holding him in a headlock, while the other removed his wallet.

Four thief attack

A quartet of goons beat and robbed a 15-year-old kid of his iPhone on Cropsey Avenue on June 5.

The victim told police that he was near Bay 16th Street waiting for a bus at 3 pm when the goons attacked, beating him, punching him in face several times, and taking his cellphone. The crooks then fled in a light-blue Nissan sedan.

Work site suspect

Someone stole more than $30,000 in supplies from a 86th Street construction site on June 11.

The crook made his way into the site between Bay 17th Street and 18th Avenue through a make-shift, rear wooden door at 4 pm, stripping the supply room of metal pipes, copper, various tools, and wire, said police.

Roll out

A thief rolled off with a man’s 1999 Ford E250 that had been parked on Bay Seventh Street on June 11.

The victim told police that he parked his car between Bath and Benson avenues at 1 am, and returned later to find his vehicle missing.

There was no broken glass on the street where the car had been parked, indicating the locks had been disabled, cops said.

Ransacked

A crook robbed a 21st Avenue apartment on June 7 — taking various electronics and jewelry.

The victim told police that he left his home between Bay Ridge Avenue and 68th Street at 7 am, and returned to find his front door unlocked and his home ransacked.

Upon further inspection, he discovered the electronics and jewelry were missing.

Locked out

A thief burglarized a 24th Avenue house on June 6, taking $1,600 — in addition to various electronics and jewelry.

The victim told police that he left his home between 64th and 65th streets at 7:20 am, and returned later to find the lock on his front door had been tampered with.

After some difficulty, he was able to get inside, where he found his laptop, three watches, two necklaces, and $1,600 gone.

Cash crook

An intruder took $5,200 from a W. Seventh Street home on June 6.

The crook entered the victim’s house between Avenues P and O through the front door sometime after 12:30 pm, forgoing other loot and going straight for the cash, cops said.

Smooth criminal

Some robbed a man’s W. Seventh Street apartment on June 5, taking $1,000 and credit cards.

Police have been unable to determine how the crook entered the apartment between Avenue O and the Bay Parkway sometime after 2 pm, although the victim told police that he found his front door unlocked.

Honda hog

A crook stole a man’s 2012 Honda Accord that was parked on W. Third Street on June 11.

The victim told police that he parked his car near Avenue P at 7 am, and returned to find it gone.
