62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Low blow

A brute bashed a man on the braincase with a bottle inside Seth Low Park on May 4, according to cops.

The victim told police he was in the greensward near the corner of 74th Street and Bay Parkway at 6:20 pm when the fiend ran up behind him and struck him on the skull with the container.


Three lowlifes lifted dozens of pieces of pooch gear from an 86th Street store on May 1, police said.

Surveillance tapes show the trio entering the shop near the corner of Stillwell Avenue at 3:12 pm, carrying empty laundry bags, officers stated. The footage shows the thieving threesome putting 75 dog harnesses and 36 retractable leashes in the duffles, then walking out without paying, according to law enforcement officials.

Grocery injustice

A schemer bilked a 20th Avenue supermarket owner out of $1,000 on May 1, authorities reported.

The businessman said the con artist called the store between 78th and 79th streets at 11:40 am and claimed to be an employee of Con Ed. The scammer told the shopkeeper that the power company would shut off the store’s electricity unless the owner paid $1,000 within 30 minutes, according to a police report. The swindler then instructed the owner to go buy two $500 pre-paid cards and read their numbers over phone — and the store owner complied, the report says.

Hong Kong phooey

A burglar busted into a 77th Street home and stole the resident’s cash and Hong Kong passport on May 1, cops stated.

A security camera captured the crook breaking down the basement door of the house between 15th and 16th avenues at noon, and exiting moments later with the immigration document and $1,100 in hand, police said.

Cash out

A villain swiped $17,000 from a 19th Avenue home on April 25, police reported.

The homeowner left the pad between 69th and 70th streets at 11 am, and came back later that day to find the rear window of their house ajar and their stash of cash gone, according to a report.
