Sword swiper

A ninja broke into a guy’s Nostrand Avenue home on July 25 and stole his samurai sword, police said.

The guy told police he entered his home near Shore Boulevard at 1:55 pm through his basement and heard footsteps upstairs. And when he got upstairs, saw the bandit in a black hoodie with the sword in hand flee out the front door.

The punk also damaged the guy’s locks and house paneling, according to authorities.

Cashing out

A bad guy broke into a woman’s E. 28th Street home on July 26 while she was at work and stole her iPhone, cash, and a checkbook, officials said.

The woman left her home near Avenue W at 7 am to go to work and returned at 6 pm to find her front door and window wide open. The lawbreaker stole Chinese currency, her iPhone 6, and her checkbook, according to authorities.

To the country club

A jerk stole a guy’s golf club set from his garage on Avenue T sometime between July 26 and July 30, police said.

The guy told police the malefactor entered his garage near Ford Street and took his $600 golf set. There was no visible forced entry to the garage, according to authorities.
