Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

A Bronx tale

Three thugs brutally mugged a Bronx woman for her iPhone on Third Avenue on July 17, police say.

The victim said that she was with a friend between 93rd and 94th streets at 2:55 am when the trio approached them.

“You’re about to get ripped,” one of the goons said, before grabbing the out-of-borough visitor. The brute then twisted her arm while he pocketed her phone. The perps fled down 93rd Street.

No walk in the park

Five goons surprised and brutally beat a man for $160 in Leif Ericson Park on July 17.

The victim reported that he was sitting on a bench near the corner of 66th Street and Ninth Avenue at 2 am when a young woman approached him and asked for a cigarette.

When the man replied that he had none, five men jumped out, put him in a choke hold, and started punching him in the face. The villains then grabbed his bag and stole his money before fleeing.


A crook stole $26,000 in motors from a construction site on Bay Ridge Parkway during the weekend of July 13.

The building company told cops that workers left the motors on scaffolding in front of a building between Shore and Colonial roads at 5 pm on Friday, and came back at 8 am on Monday morning to find that the expensive equipment was gone.

TV party

A jerk broke into a Bay Ridge woman’s Senator Street apartment and made off with her TV on July 3.

The woman told police she left her home between Third and Fourth avenues at 6 pm and returned at 8:30 pm to find that her door had been pried open and her 36-inch Samsung was gone.
