Thug attack

Two toughs chased down and robbed a woman on Hicks Street on Jan. 13, police said.

The 56-year-old woman said she was near Congress Street heading toward Long Island College Hospital at 11:10 pm when she noticed a suspicious man watching her on the Congress Street overpass. She continued down the boulevard and was suddenly approached by three men who threw her to the ground, snatched her chain and ID, and grabbed her purse.

The woman’s wallet was later recovered at Columbia and Congress streets, but was missing credits cards, as well as an iPhone charger.

Crime on Cheever

A band of criminals robbed a woman as she walked home from the train station on Cheever Place on Jan. 13, cops said.

The 32-year-old woman said she was between Kay and Degraw streets at 10:04 pm when she got hit in the back of the head. When she turned around, three men got in her face and yelled, “Give me your phone!”

But when the victim yelled for help, the perps fled down Kane Street.

Greedy hands

A crafty criminal stole a woman’s package from her Kane Street doorstep sometime between Dec. 30 and Jan. 2 — for the third time this month, police said.

The 46-year-old woman said the package containing 144 T-shirts was delivered to her home between Clinton and Court streets sometime between Dec. 30 at 2 pm to Jan. 2 at 4 pm, at which point she discovered it ripped open and empty.

Hicks heist

A perp drove off with a man’s car parked on Hicks Street sometime overnight on Jan. 11, police said.

The 34-year-old man said he parked the white Dodge between Bush Street and Centre Mall at 9:30 pm, and when he returned at 1 pm on Jan. 12, it was gone. There was no broken glass at the scene.

Mountain man

A bandit stole a man’s bicycle from a basement on Baltic Street sometime between Jan. 2 and Jan. 10, cops said.

The 44-year-old man said he parked his red mountain bike in a basement hallway between Smith and Court streets on Jan. 2 at 11 pm, and when he came back on Jan. 10 at 9 pm, it was missing.
