68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bait and kitsch

Three female shysters defrauded a Sunset Park woman out of $6,000 in Leif Ericson Park on Oct. 31, police say.

The victim reported that she was on 67th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 4:50 pm when the trio of tricksters approached her and offered to sell her a bag full of items bringing good luck and wellness to her family for $6,000. The woman agreed to get the cash together and meet up with the shady ladies later on.

The sale went down in the 66th Street and Eighth Avenue corner of the green space, and the woman took the bag home — only to find later that it simply contained rolled up paper and a bottle of water.

Hoosier hold-up

A blade-wielding thug mugged an Indiana transplant on Fort Hamilton Parkway on Nov. 11, according to cops.

The Bloomington-born victim told police that she was near 85th Street on her way home from shopping at 7 pm when the goon approached her with a knife in hand.

The crook ordered her to surrender her phone, cash, and groceries, then frisked the woman to see if she was carrying any more money before fleeing.

No conditions

A tool swiped an air conditioner from a garage on 64th Street on Nov. 11, police report.

The victim said that he locked his garage between 10th and 11th avenues at midnight, but when he returned 10 am to get his car, the fastener was broken — and his cooling unit, along with some of his children’s toys, were missing.
