62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

New York’s lowest

Two imposters posing as the city’s finest robbed a man on Bay 29th Street on May 18 — taking $450 and the man’s cellphone.

The victim told the real police that he was leaving his friend’s apartment between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at 2:45 pm when he was confronted by the two crooks wearing NYPD golden shields around their necks.

The thieves ordered the victim to lay on the hood of a car while they removed his valuables before fleeing.


A thief pillaged a 73rd Street apartment on May 17 — leaving it in shambles.

The victim told police that she left her home between 17th and 18th avenues to go to work at around 9 am, and returned later to find her front door open. Inside, she found her apartment in shambles, with various draws and cabinets ransacked, and an unknown amount of property taken.

Bracelet bust

A crook stole a bracelet from a woman’s Bay Ridge Parkway apartment on May 17.

The victim told police that she left her home between 20th and 21st avenues at 9:30 am, and when she returned, she found that the chain on her door had been locked from the inside and that she couldn’t get in to her apartment.

When she finally managed to get inside, she found that her dresser drawer was left open and her golden bracelet was missing.

Knife to meet you

A knife-wielding thug slashed a man’s arm on Cropsey Avenue on May 19 — following a heated argument that took a turn for the worst.

The victim told police that he was between 19th Avenue and Bay 22nd Street at around 8:20 pm, where he and the blade-toting goon got into a disagreement.

Eventually, the crook drew his weapon and slashed the victim’s left arm.

Jewelry heist

The victim told police that the crook entered his apartment between 76th and 77th streets through the front door sometime after 7:20 am, taking various jewelry.

MacBook procured

A thief stole a pair of diamond earrings and a laptop from an 85th Street house on May 17.
