Brown-bagging it

A fiend struck a woman on the head with a blunt object concealed in a paper bag on 80th Street on April 16, then took her purse, police said.

The victim told cops she was getting off the bus near Bay Parkway at 3 pm when the goon came up and demanded she hand over her pocketbook.

When the woman said no, the brute bashed her on the head with his hidden weapon, grabbed the purse — with $50, a cellphone, and several pieces of jewelry inside — and scrammed, according to the law.

Pretty baby

A woman walked out of a Kings Highway pharmacy with thousands of dollars worth of beauty products hidden in her baby carriage on April 18, cops stated.

Security cameras captured the shady lady walking along the aisles of the drug store between W. 11th and W. 12th streets at 3:30 pm and slipping numerous items in the perambulator before she strolled out, police said.


A heretic swiped thousands of dollars worth of electronics from the basement of a Van Sicklen Street church on April 12, authorities reported.

An employee of the house of worship between Avenues S and T noticed the equipment missing from its storage spot behind a stage at 1:30 pm. Church leaders said that only its maintenance personnel and the construction crew working on the building would have access to the basement, and there was no sign of forced entry, according to a report.

Car cached

A lowlife stole the rims and tires off a car parked on 20th Lane on April 16 after breaking into the vehicle to steal the key to the protective wheel locks, police stated.

The victim said he parked his car between 20th Avenue and 21st Drive at 9:30 pm and returned the next morning to find a window smashed, the key taken from the glove compartment, and his wheels stripped to the hubs.

Bagged one

A fiend stole a woman’s designer handbag and cellphone on W. Seventh Street on April 19, cops said.

The victim said she was walking near Kings Highway at 2:15 am when the villain ran up behind her, snatched the purse — with her mobile device inside — off her shoulder, and fled.
