Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Under the gun

Two goons held a woman up with a semi-automatic pistol on 62nd Street on May 28, police say.

The victim said the two hooded thugs came up to her between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue at 3:40 am and drew their lethal weapon.

The duo demanded cash, and the woman surrendered $280 and the villains fled.

Off the pipe

A raider made off with tools and copper piping from a 74th Street construction site sometime between May 23 and May 26, police report.

The workers told cops they left the job between 13th and 14th avenues at 6 pm and returned three days later at 8:30 am — to discover their equipment and tubing stolen.

Screen fiend

A lowlife tore through a screen door and pillaged a 77th Street home on May 28, according to cops.

The victim reported leaving the residence between 11th and 12th avenues at 7:30 am. When he got back at 4 pm, he found the mesh of the rear entry in tatters and $900 missing from the home.


A burglar pried his way into a home at the corner of 77th Street and 10th Avenue and made off with a stash of cash and jewelry on May 29, authorities say.

The victim told police he left his home at 8 am and came back at 5 pm — and saw that somebody had forced open the back door and stolen the baubles and $1,000 in currency.

Bruised apple

A pair of punks punched a man for his iPhone at the corner of 69th Street and 12th Avenue on May 31, cops state.

The victim told police he was walking home at 11:20 am when the crooks came up and struck him in the face. The dastardly duo then grabbed his mobile device and fled.
