Backpack purloiner

A criminal pushed a teen to the ground, threatened her, and stole her backpack as she was walking to school near Kings Highway on March 15, police said.

The 16-year-old victim told police she had just got off the subway near E. 16th Street at about 8:30 am when the malefactor knocked her to the ground, and then three other goons surrounded her.

The first brute then displayed what looked like a black handgun in his waistband and said, “Give me everything,” the teen told police. She handed them her black North Face bookbag with $10 inside, and a metal ring on her finger, officials said. All four fled on foot on Kings Highway, according to authorities.

Cashed out

A nogoodnik broke into a Gravesend Neck Road store sometime overnight on March 13 and swiped thousands in cash, police said.

An employee told police the baddie broke the glass in front of the store near E. 13th Street some point between 9:30 pm to 7:30 am the next day and grabbed $5,300 out of the cash drawer, according to authorities.

Sacrilegious sneak

A filcher broke into an E. 21st Street shul and stole cash and information about congregants in the middle of the night on March 13, police said.

The crook entered the synagogue near Avenue T through a front unlocked window at about 3:30 am and ransacked the office, according to authorities. The baddie swiped $150 and a box with congregants’ information in it, officials said.

Tool thief

A punk broke into a guy’s work van he had parked on Avenue P on March 15 and stole a bunch of his tools, police said.

The guy told police his van was parked near E. 23rd Street at about 8 pm when the jerk damaged the lock in the back and ran off with his Honda generator, Milwaukee grinder, Dewalt drills, and a spare tire, according to authorities.

Caught red-handed

Cops cuffed two suspects who they say attacked a guy and stole his cash on Avenue U on March 15.

The victim told police he was near W. Ninth Street at about 4 pm when the first suspect punched him and knocked him to the ground to grab $100 from his right pants pocket.

The second suspect then held him down while the first punched and cut his fingers him with a knife, according to authorities.
