Four thugs attacked a woman from behind on Lincoln Place and ran off with her purse at 5:50 pm on Jan. 22.

Big bills

A woman not only had her purse stolen, but later discovered that the thief had run up more than $2,000 in credit card charges before she could cancel her accounts.

The 61-year-old victim, who lives on 12th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, said she didn’t notice for several days that her wallet had been stolen.

By the time she alerted the authorities, the perp had charged $2,229.17 at Target, Duane Reade, Marshalls and Hertz. The perp also purchased a monthly Metrocard for $76.
