68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Drive-by stabbing

A knife-wielding fiend gouged a man in the forehead and thigh on 80th Street on June 26, cops say.

Witnesses reported that the stab-happy savage pulled up between Fifth and Sixth avenues in a white sedan at 6:28 pm, jumped out of the car with the blade in hand, and jabbed the victim three times in the leg and once in the face. The crook then jumped back into the car and sped off.


A villain heisted $50 from a Third Avenue Mexican restaurant after hours on June 23, police report.

The business owner told cops that he closed the tacqueria between 75th and 76th streets at 9:30 pm, and returned at 9:30 am the next day to discover the front door broken open and the register cleaned out.

Diner dash

A crook swiped $500 in cash from a restaurant on 69th Street on June 30, according to cops.

The eatery owner said that he closed his business near Third Avenue at 2 am and returned to re-open at 7:30 am. But on arriving he discovered one of the restaurant’s windows open and the screen broken — and a pair of lockboxes in the back office emptied.

Restaurant week

A lowlife lifted a woman’s purse from inside a 77th Street dining destination on June 26, authorities allege.

The victim said she got up from her seat at the eatery near the corner of Fifth Avenue at 2:20 pm, and left her bag behind. When she came back five minutes later, the pocketbook — and the $1,450 it contained — was gone.

Pedal punks

Three thugs mugged a woman on 70th Street on June 24, police say.

The victim said she was near Colonial Road at 4:25 am when two of the brutes rolled up behind her on bicycles and grabbed her from behind. One of the goons seized her purse, while a third came up on foot and demanded her phone.

After taking the device, the terrible trio fled down 70th Street.
