Drop-off rip-off

A thief stole hundreds in cash, credit and debit cards, and a driver’s license from a rental car after the renter dropped it off at a Shore Parkway dealership and forgot his wallet inside on Aug. 29, according to police.

When the renter returned to the dealership at Bay 38th Street around 3:20 pm to retrieve his possessions from the car, they were gone. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras in the area.

Box office

A brute threatened to kill his coworker before slicing him on his chest with a box cutter on McDonald Avenue on Aug. 30, according to police.

The double whammy threat-and-assault took place near Avenue P around 11 am, and the victim was in considerable pain and bleeding heavily, police said.

Purse strings

A good-for-nothing threatened a woman with a knife and tried to steal her purse on W. 10th Street on Aug. 31.

The perp approached the woman between Avenues U and T just after 10:30 pm, flashed a knife and ordered her to hand over her purse. The woman quickly ran to a lighted area and screamed, scaring the bandit off. He fled in an unknown direction and investigators said they are reviewing video of the incident.
