62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Magic touch

Two gun-toting goons mugged a man for his cash and iPod Touch on Bay Parkway on Nov. 21, according to cops.

The victim told police that he was between 66th and 67th Streets at 1:10 am when the pair of thugs approached him and displayed a gun.

The villains then ransacked his pockets and took his gadget and $40.

Time to get a watch

A crook took a 13-year-old boy’s iPhone on 85th Street on Nov. 21 — after asking the kid for the time.

The victim said he was near 21st Avenue on his way home from school at 4:45 pm when the lowlife came up to him and asked if he knew the hour. When the young man took out his device, the bully demanded he hand it over.

“Give me the phone right now or I will shoot you,” the creep said, though he didn’t take out a firearm.

Still, the teen let the man take gadget.

The real trash

A ruffian roughed up a city Sanitation man on 71st Street on Nov. 19, police report.

The garbage handler said he was collecting refuse between 14th and 15th avenues at 8:55 am when the punk charged and tackled him, raising bruises on his neck and arms.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

No Joe

A pair of punks busted into an 86th Street office and stole a coffee pot on Nov. 22, cops report.

The business owner said the two crooks kicked in the door of the business near the corner of Bay 40th Street at 5:46 am and snatched the java maker before fleeing.

Show of gratitude

A homeless person robbed the man who took him into his Kings Highway home on Nov. 20, according to police.

The victim said he let the man — who Hurricane Sandy had left without shelter — into his apartment between W. Second and W. Third Streets on Nov. 10.

Ten days later, the good Samaritan took a snooze at 5 pm and awoke to find his cellphone and electronics gone.
