68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Food poisoning

A marauder assaulted and threatened an employee at a restaurant on Third Avenue on Aug. 21, police said.

According to investigators, the perp entered the restaurant at 89th Street through the sidewalk cellar door just after 4:30 am and pointed a black gun at the face of an employee. He then ordered him to lead him to the kitchen, keeping the gun lodged against his back all the while.

Once they reached the kitchen, the crook ziptied the hands and feet of the employee and left him on the kitchen floor while he disappeared. When he returned, he removed the zipties from the employee’s feet and brought him to the building’s basement, where he removed the zipties from the employee’s hands and ordered him to stay put. The employee quickly went upstairs and called police, who found damage to the cash register but no missing cash, said police, who said they plan to review security cameras in the area.

Caught red-handed

Police arrested a man after he stole a debit card from a woman’s handbag at a dentist’s office on Fourth Ave. on Aug. 23, police said.

The theft occurred at 100th Street just before 9 am, when the woman saw the man rummaging through her handbag. Police recovered the debit card following the arrest.
