Courtside ripoff

A trio of punks stole a man’s book bags and books and then assaulted him after he refused to give up the items while he was playing basketball on Avenue P on Nov. 17, police said.

The man was playing near West 13th Street just after 6:30 pm when the no-goodniks demanded he hand over his property. But when the hoopster refused, the perps punched him in the head multiple times, causing injuries, according to the report. After grabbing the goods, they all fled on Bay Parkway in an unknown direction. Police are reviewing cameras in the area.

He kept trucking

A perp stole $8,500 worth of goods from a commercial truck parked on 68th Street on Nov. 17.

The car was parked at 18th Avenue, where the criminal entered through the driver’s side door without causing damage to the lock at around 2 pm. Police are reviewing cameras in the area, according to the report.

Back window break-in

A thief stole $2,000 worth of goods from a 72nd Street apartment on Nov. 18.

There, then gone

Polish snatcher

Behind the backpack
