61st Precinct

Sheepshead Bay—Homecrest— Manhattan Beach—Gravesend

Hot hands

In a horrifying domestic dispute, a man set his wife’s hands on fire and beat her inside their Ocean Avenue apartment on Sept. 30, police said.

The victim told police that she was arguing with her husband inside their home between Quentin Road and Avenue R at 4:20 pm when, bizarrely, he asked her to take off her nail extensions. As the victim was soaking her hands in nail polish, the deranged husband somehow ignited the flammable basin — with his wife’s hands still inside, police reported.

He then threw the woman to the ground and began dragging her throughout the apartment, cops said.

Tangled up

Two depraved thugs robbed a lone woman on Van Sicklen Street on Oct. 6, taking her iPhone.

The victim told police that she was between Gravesend Neck Road and Corso Court on her way home at 11 pm, when, suddenly, she heard the savage goons barking orders.

“Come over here, b-----,” one of the thieves snarled, before snaring the woman by the hair and snatching her smartphone, cops said.

Sleeping victim

A sneaky thief looted a man’s Shore Parkway home on Sept. 30 — taking more than $1,000 while the victim was sleeping.

The victim told police that he went to sleep inside his home betwee E. 13th and E. 14th streets at 2 am, and awoke at 5 am to find his kitchen window open and $1,100, his wallet, driver’s license, and Visa card missing.

Easy pickings

Two heartless crooks robbed a 13-year-old boy on Avenue T on Oct. 3, taking his iPhone.

The victim told police that he was near Nostrand Avenue at 2:30 pm when the goons started harassing him.

“Give me everything in your pockets,” one of crooks barked, and the little victim reached into his pockets and handed over his phone, cops said.

Backpack beat down

A vicious thug beat a man and nabbed his backpack on Brown Street on Sept. 27.

The victim told police he was near Avenue X at 1:20 pm when the terrible thief laid the smackdown upside the victim’s head, punching and kicking him, before grabbing his bag and scurrying off. The victim’s book bag contained a MetroCard, according to police.

Caught on record

Police say a bumbling boyfriend caught red-handed in the arms of another woman beat his girlfriend with a piece of wood on Voorhies Avenue on Oct. 4.

The victim told police that she went to her boyfriend’s job between E. 18th and E. 19th streets at 11 pm, where she caught him with the other woman. After a brief shoving match, the boyfriend took the unspecified wooden object and hit his girlfriend in the head with it, cops said.

Bally’s total ballistic

A man went bonkers inside a Sheepshead Bay Road Bally’s Gym on Oct. 2 — throwing punches and flinging his hot coffee around in dispute of a $2 fee the gym charged his wife.

An employee told police that he was working inside the gym between Voorhies Avenue and Shore Parkway at 2:40 pm when the enraged husband stormed in and slugged him in the face. The madman then began throwing coffee at the victim and threatened every staff member within earshot of a gruesome death via gunshot wounds, cops said.
