Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
A burglar stole a woman’s trove of jewelry from her 84th street apartment on Jan. 16, police said.
The woman left her apartment between Fourth and Fifth avenues around 10 am and returned at 10 pm to find her bedroom window blinds were suspiciously pulled open.
Then she saw she was missing 26 pieces of jewelry from her dresser and a jewelry box on her nightstand, according to police.
An invader broke into an Eighth Avenue restaurant on Jan. 11, but did not get away with a whole lot.
Surveillance footage from the joint near Bay Ridge Avenue just before 3 am shows the freebooter breaking open a locked door that led to the kitchen, police said. He ran behind the counter to make his big money grab, but he only found $40. He took it anyway and fled.
Cops arrested a man who they said tried to rob a man walking on Fourth Avenue on Jan. 14.
The victim told police he was on near 91st Street, on his way to the train, at 2:20 am when the suspect came up behind him.
The suspect was wearing a black coat and covered his face for his attack, officials reported. He tried to grab the man’s bag, but failed and fled, police said.
Cops later found him in area and one officer saw him drop a knife.
