68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bike thug

A two-wheeling goon snatched a Bay Ridge woman’s bag on Senator Street on July 27, police say.

The victim reported that she on the sidewalk between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 11:25 pm when the pedal punk bumped into her. The handlebar ruffian apologized — then grabbed her purse. The two struggled for a moment, but the leg-pumping perp escaped on his bicycle.


A jerk made off with the wheels of a Bay Ridge man’s car on Shore Road sometime between July 24 and July 26, according to poice.

The victim said that he left his car between 93rd and 94th streets at 11 am on Tuesday, and came back on Thursday to find that a fiend had swiped his wheels, tires and all.

Apple juice

A pair of punks snatched a woman’s iPhone right out of her hand on Fort Hamilton Parkway on July 28 — and chucked a bottle at her and her friend as they gave chase, according to cops.

The victim said she and her friend were between 67th and 68th streets at 4:30 pm when the two goons ran up and grabbed her gadget. The woman said she and her companion pursued the dastardly duo, only to have the crooks hurl a glass bottle at them. The victims said they were unhurt, and the villains escaped in a silver Audi.

Unholy act

A jerk ripped off a church-going Bay Ridge woman on 82nd Street on July 29, police report.

The victim said she was near Fourth Avenue on her way to services at 7:40 am when the creep came up behind her and tore away her bag.

Stealer’s wheels

A crook took the wheels off of a Bay Ridge woman’s car on Bay Ridge Parkway overnight on July 26, cops say.

The victim told police that she parked her car between Third and Fourth avenues at 10:30 pm — and when she came back out at 6:30 am the next day, the vehicle was up on cinderblocks and its wheels were gone.
