63rd Precinct

Marine Park-Mill Basin-Flatlands-Bergen Beach

Pumping up

A gunman held up an employee at a Foster Avenue station on Oct. 24, robbing him of his cash and cellphone.

The victim was fueling up a car near Kings Highway at 3:42 pm when the thief snuck up behind him and flashed his weapon.

“Don’t move and don’t make a sound,” the man said before rifling through the victim’s pockets.

Rolling thievery

Two thugs on bicycles held up a 15-year-old on Avenue T in Mill Basin on Oct. 26, but pedaled off when they realized that someone was watching them.

The victim was nearing E. 52nd Street at 2:20 pm when the suspects rolled up to him, flashed a gun and ordered him to, “run his pockets.”

But they were the ones running: when a pedestrian walked by, the suspects pedaled off, taking nothing.

Roll-by robbery

Three thieves in a black car held up an 18-year-old on Avenue M in Bergen Beach on Oct. 29.

The victim was approaching E. 68th Street at 9:15 pm when the thieves rolled up and acted as if they had a gun. They then swiped the victim’s iPod, wallet and cellphone, and drove, the victim told police.

Not very social

A goon attacked a Foster Avenue club hopper on Oct. 25, braining his victim with a glass bottle.

The victim was inside the club near Kings Highway just before 4 am when he got into an argument with the assailant, who left him with injuries that required medical attention.

Basement entry

A thief broke into an Avenue K home on Oct. 27, damaging a basement door as he forced his way inside.

The victim said he left his home near Flatbush Avenue at 10:30 am. When he returned a short time later, he found his basement door open and an assortment of jewelry was missing.

Window crawler

A crook entered an E. 58th Street home on Oct. 22 — after crawling inside through a second story window.

Police were told that the thief entered the home near Flatlands Avenue sometime after 2 pm, taking $1,500, some credit cards and jewelry.

Cellphone grab

A thief snatched a cellphone from a 16-year-old girl on Oct. 25 during a robbery on Avenue N.

The victim was walking toward Flatbush Avenue at 5:45 pm when the thief ran by, grabbed the phone and jumped into an awaiting car.

Car raid

A goon broke into an unlocked car on Kimball Street on Oct. 27, taking a 32-year-old man’s wallet and credit cards.

The victim said he left his door to the 2011 Infiniti open when he parked it near Avenue T at 12:15 am. When he returned a few moments later, the cabin had been looted.

iPhone predator

A crook jumped a 27-year-old woman on Avenue H on Oct. 28, stealing her cherished iPhone.

The woman was nearing Utica Avenue at 3:30 pm when the thief ran by and swiped the phone.
