Passport punk

A heartless perp pretended to help an old woman but instead stole the money in her purse on Calyer Street on Sept. 3.

The 87-year-old woman told cops that she was near Manhattan Avenue when the man approached from behind, said, “You have something on your back” and then began wiping off the mystery substance.

He certainly left the victim clean — instead of wiping her back, he was actually picking her pocket of cash and a passport.

Where: Calyer Street and Manhattan Avenue
