Brazen boob

A thief with a lot of guts, but apparently no brains, was arrested on Nov. 6 after he swiped a purse from a car on Coney Island Avenue — while two women were sitting inside the vehicle.

The two stunned witnesses said they were in the car parked between Kings Highway and Avenue R at 9 pm when the 19-year-old thief threw open the door, snagged the purse and ran off.

But he didn’t get far. Within moments one of his victims called police, who grabbed the suspect a few blocks away.

Where: 2086 Coney Island Avenue
