Rock and stole

A brazen thief threw a rock through a glass store door on 86th Street on Nov. 12 before stealing $10,900 in cash from the shop and fleeing on foot.

The thief broke smashed the front door of the shop at 16th Avenue just after midnight, according to a police report. He stole the hefty sum of cash from assorted places inside, and then fled towards 16th Avenue.

Holding the phone

Three punks stole a woman’s iPhone 6 while she was waiting on a Manhattan-bound N train platform at 20th Avenue on Nov. 8.

The pack of perps approached her at the station between 63rd and 64th streets around 3:45 p.m, grabbed the phone from her hands and took off, according to police.

Name game

A miscreant sprayed another man with a chemical agent on 18th Avenue on Nov. 12, causing pain and redness to the man’s eyes, according to police.

The crook sprayed the man on 68th Street at around 5 pm. When a suspect was apprehended shortly after, he knowingly gave a false name and date of birth, investigators said.

Blade knaves

A pack of three no-goodniks stole $300 cash from a man in the lobby of a Shore Parkway building on Nov. 11 after one of them threatened the man with a knife.

The louts approached the man in the lobby of the building near 20th Lane at around 9:30 pm, when one placed a knife on the man’s neck and took $300 from his right front pocket before they fled on foot in an unknown direction. Police are reviewing cameras in the area.

Failed fisticuffs

Police arrested two men who unsuccessfully tried to steal from a man before they punched him in the face, causing pain and laceration to his lip, on Bay Parkway on Nov. 11.

The pair approached the man near W. Seventh Street just after 8 pm, and asked him if he lived in the area. They then put their hands into the man’s pockets and tried to steal from him, but he fought them off by pushing them away, at which point they punched him in the face. The man went to Lutheran Hospital to be treated, and the perps were arrested on the scene after a witness called 911.

Forgotten, and gone

An unknown nogoodnik stole a man’s bag of electronics from a public Bay Parkway parking lot on Nov. 9 after he left it on the ground and drove away before remembering where he left it.

The man was loading up his car with merchandise in the parking lot of a store near Shore Parkway when he put a bag of electronics on the ground. But he forgot about the bag when he drove off, and when he finally realized his error later and returned to the spot, the bag was gone. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras in the area.

Creepy break-in

A good-for-nothing broke into a woman’s Bath Avenue apartment through a rear window on Nov. 7, then spooked the occupant and fled before taking anything.

The perp entered the apartment at Bay 41st Street at 1 am and walked upstairs and encountered the woman and flashed a light in her face. The lowlife(s) didn’t take anything from the house, but caused damage to the window.

Low blow

Police arrested two teenage boys who assaulted a woman by punching her in the face after they attempted to steal from her on W 10th Street on Nov. 11.

The boys approached the woman around 7:50 pm at Avenue P, where they grabbed her by the arm and demanded money. When she refused and said she had no money, they asked for her cell phone. And when she refused to hand that over, the boys punched her in the face, causing pain and a nosebleed. They fled on foot, but the victim was able to lead police to the pair of perps, who were then cuffed.
