62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Crackin’ a cold one

Three thugs battered a man on W. Seventh Street and stole his cellphone on Jan. 24 after he refused to buy them beer, police report.

The victim said he was near Avenue U on his way to work at 5:53 am when the goons came up to him and demanded cash for booze. When the man refused, the three attacked — punching him, knocking him to the ground, kicking him, and then reaching into his pockets and taking his mobile device.

Getting a lift

A robber stole a woman’s cellphone in the hallway of her 21st Avenue building on Jan. 27, according to cops.

The victim told police she was riding with the villain in the elevator of the residence between 73rd and 74th streets at 8:45 pm when he told her to give him her cellphone. She refused at first, and when the doors opened, the brute muscled her into a corner of the passageway and took her mobile device, then ran.

The wire

A crook lifted several items from a McDonald Avenue electronics depot on Jan. 15, authorities report.

Security tapes show the lowlife entering the store between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 1:30 pm, picking up several items, and walking out without paying.

Offensive linemen

A trio of phone company workers stole numerous tools from a 20th Avenue basement on Jan. 8, police state.

The victim said the linemen started work in his cellar between Benson and Bath avenues at 4 pm. When he went down after the workers were done, he discovered his hand tools gone.
