62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Hot stuff

An angry customer hurled a cup of scalding coffee in the face of a Bay Parkway gas station clerk on Jan. 7 amid a heated dispute over a sandwich, police say.

The victim said the customer requested a hero that the fuel stop between 87th and 88th streets did not carry — and when the worker relayed the bad news, he said the hungry thug became enraged.

In retaliation for the store’s limited options, the perp threw his cup of steaming java in the cashier’s face.

Masked marauder

A masked, gloved, gun-toting goon held up a W. Sixth Street bodega on Jan. 9, police report.

The store clerk stated that the disguised degenerate came barging into the store at the corner of Avenue S at 10:30 pm, with his weapon drawn. The hooded hustler then demanded the money in the register, which the cashier surrendered — a total haul of $2,000.

Van man

A ruffian in a red van roughed up a woman on 83rd Street for her purse on Jan. 10, according to cops.

The victim told police she left her car between 16th and 17th avenues at 7:15 pm and started walking home — taking no notice of the vermilion vehicle double-parked in front of her own.

But shortly after she passed it, the crook erupted out of the driver’s-side door, shoved her to the ground, grabbed her bag — with $500 inside — and jumped back in the van and sped away.

Time flies

Two bike-riding brutes swiped a man’s cellphone, watch, and jacket after asking him the hour on 63rd Street on Jan. 12, authorities allege.

The victim said he was walking along 63rd Street near 15th Avenue at 4 pm when the punks pedaled up behind him and requested the time. When he took out his mobile device to check for them, one of them grabbed the gadget — while the other tore off the victim’s jacket.

The victim told police that his coat pocket contained, of all things, his Cartier timepiece.

Lotion on its skin

A furious wife allegedly assaulted her drunken husband with a bottle of moisturizer inside their 84th Street apartment on Jan. 9.

The victim said he stumbled, intoxicated, into his home between 21st Avenue and Bay Parkway at 7:40 pm — allegedly prompting his spouse to fly into a rage. Cops say the hot-tempered harpy grabbed the jug of Ponds lotion and flung it at her man.

The balm caught him full in the face, causing a laceration that required six stitches, according to reports.
