A violent thug beat and robbed a woman as she walked down 11th Avenue on Oct. 18.
The 48-year-old victim was at the corner of Ovington Avenue at around 7 pm when the suspect hopped out of a gray car, walked up to her, grabbed her purse and then punched her in the side of the head.
The thief made off with more than $200, as well as various debit and credit cards.
Someone broke into a Third Avenue restaurant overnight on Oct. 18.
The owner of the restaurant, which is between 70th and 71st streets, told police that when he arrived at the business just before 6 am, he noticed one of the front windows was broken, and $800 was missing from the cash register inside.
At least two neighborhood homes were broken into last week. Here’s a roundup:
• Someone burgled a 70th Street house on Oct. 16 while its residents were not home from 6–8 pm. When they returned to the apartment, between 12th and 13th avenues, they saw that someone had grabbed more than $1,000 in jewelry from inside.
• The next day, someone broke into a home on Fourth Avenue between 73rd and 74th streets, between 8 am and 6 pm. About $4,000 worth of electronics was taken.
Someone stole a parked car off of 72nd Street on Oct. 17.
The victim, 33, told cops she left the vehicle at the corner of 13th Avenue at around 9 pm. When she returned 13 hours later, the car was gone.
