68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Where’s my car?

A thief drove off in a man’s car parked on 64th Street on Feb. 27.

The man told police he parked his blue Subaru Impreza between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue in a shared parking lot. But when he returned at 9 pm he discovered it was gone, officials said.

A witness told police that he saw a man break the lock on the driver’s-side door, enter the car, and drive off, authorities said.

Brutal beating

Two brutes viciously beat a man on 86th Street on March 3.

The man told police a taxi dropped him off between Third and Fourth avenues at 4:50 am. He began walking home when two men aproached him, one from in front and the other from behind, police said. The baddie in front of the man tried to shove his hand into his pockets, but the man resisted, officials said. The second goon then struck him in the face with an unknown object, causing the man to blackout and collapse on the sidewalk.

The victim was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, police said. None of his belongings were taken, according to a police report.


Four ruffians mugged two men on Fifth Avenue on March 5, said police.

One of the victims told police that he was walking along the street with his friend between 86th and 88th streets at 4:40 am when the pair passed a bar. Four bruisers in front of the watering hole aproached the men and began punching and kicking them, said police.

The goons knocked the men to the ground and grabbed their cash and phones before fleeing the scene, officials said.
