62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Minor threat

A gang of goons brutalized a 12-year-old boy for his bookbag on 65th Street on July 24, cops state.

The victim reported that he was near 16th Avenue at 12:30 pm on his way home when seven or eight savages surrounded him and demanded his knapsack.

“Give me your backpack or I will hit you,” one of the thugs said.

Before the child could comply, the crooks pushed him to the ground and punched him about the arms and head. They then took his bag — with $80 inside — and scrammed.

Cash bash

A pair of punks pulverized a man for his money on W. 10th Street on July 23, police report.

The victim told cops he was near Avenue S at 1:30 am when the goons came up and began beating him. They took $100 from his pocket and fled.

Taken out

Two brutes choked a deliveryman with his bicycle chain and stole his money inside a Dahill Road apartment building on July 28, authorities say.

The victim told cops he entered the building near the corner of 17th Avenue to drop off food at 1:20 pm. He passed a pair of men in the lobby on his way up to the apartment, thinking nothing of them. Nobody answered when he knocked on the flat’s door, and he headed back downstairs — where the dastardly duo he had walked by earlier jumped him.

The pair of perps wrapped his bike chain around his neck and emptied his pockets of $95. The twosome then fled the premises.

Turn the other cheek

A bicycle-riding lowlife struck a woman and stole her phone on Benson Avenue on July 28, police state.

The victim said she was near Bay 29th Street at 8:23 pm when the thug on two wheels pedaled up, slapped her across the face, and took her cellphone.


A villain stole a jackhammer from the garage of a 15th Avenue apartment on July 22, according to cops.

The pneumatic drill owner said he checked his carport between 89th and 90th streets at 9 pm and found that some fiend had opened the unlocked side door and stolen his power tool.
