Popped for purse

A thief punched a 27-year-old woman in the nose during a purse grab on April 28.

Police said that the woman was on Coney Island Avenue between Avenues X and Y at 10:50 am when the thief crept up and hit her.

He then scooped up the woman’s purse and ran off, but didn’t get far.

Cops rounded up the thief, identified as East Flatbush resident Nearcel Cineus, a short time later, charging him with robbery.
