62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Break today

A group of juvies assaulted a man with a water bottle at a fast food joint on 86th Street on Jan. 17, police report.

The victim said he was on the stairs from the second floor of the restaurant near 20th Avenue at 2:45 pm when he saw the ne’er-do-well youths lounging about the landing. He asked them to let him by, and they parted — but as he passed one of the young punks struck him on the back of the head with a full plastic water bottle. The victim sought medical attention at Maimonides Hospital.

Held up without a gun

A thug mugged a woman with the threat of a firearm on Avenue P on Jan. 20, according to cops.

The victim reported that she was walking between McDonald Avenue and Dahill Road at 1 am when she heard a voice behind her.

“Give me your purse or I’m going to shoot you,” the crook demanded.

The woman surrendered her bag — containing $80 — without turning to see if the fiend was actually packing, and the villain fled with the loot.

Order of operations

An apparently confused goon robbed a man on W. Eighth Street on Jan. 20 — and put on his disguise mid-crime, authorities state.

The victim told cops he was near Avenue O heading in the direction of Bay Parkway at 11:10 pm when the unmasked marauder came up to him with gun drawn, and demanded his wallet and phone.

When the victim did not immediately comply, the lowlife tied a bandana around his face — which persuaded the victim to surrender his billfold and mobile device.

The victim said he left his vehicle near Shore Parkway at 4:30 pm, and returned the next to find damage to his driver’s side door — and his collection of gadgetry — gone.


A crook jacked a dollar van from 63rd Street on Jan. 18, according to police.

The victim said he parked his vehicle near 19th Avenue at 5 pm, and came back the following day to discover it missing.
