Today’s news:

Frank and Eddie’s is hit!

for The Brooklyn Paper

Super-robbed!

A thief robbed a cash register from Frank and Eddie’s Meats and Deli on Third Avenue.

The burglar broke into the store, which is on the corner of Bay Ridge Parkway, between 7 pm on July 22 to 8 am on the next day, when the owner returned to find the front door broken and $300 missing.

Peeping Tom

A burglar broke into a Senator Street apartment on July 23 — and was caught inside when the resident returned.

The victim told police that she’d left the house at around 1:30 pm and returned only an hour later.

When she tried to open the door, it was stuck. The reason? The burglar was standing behind the door peeping through her peep hole from inside the apartment.

The perp fled through the kitchen window without taking a thing from the apartment, which is between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard.

Pistol whipped

Two hoodlums brutally beat and robbed two people on July 24.

The victims were on 62nd Street at around 9:30 pm when they passed the thugs who were walking the other way.

Shortly after passing, one of the thieves grabbed a victim, turned him around and took his bag.

His accomplice then approached the other, brandished a black handgun, and said, “You don’t want to die for less than $100.”

He then hit the victim in the face with the gun. They took a few more valuables and fled.

Get a bank

A thief entered a Fort Hamilton Parkway apartment by climbing up the fire escape and through a window on July 24.

The victim was gone from 3 am to around 6 am, when she returned to the apartment, which is between 85th and 86th streets, to find her closet door broken and $1,500 removed from a doll in which she had stuffed the cash.

Ransacked!

A messy thief ransacked one woman’s Gelston Avenue apartment on July 24.

The victim left at 8 am and returned at around 7 pm to an utterly destroyed front lock and clothes and other property thrown all over her floor. The thief apparently got hungry, taking items from the fridge.

In all, he got a $1,000 watch, $500 necklace, $3,500 in rings, and a $250 camera from the apartment, which is between 92nd and 94th streets.

Car crazy!

An unusually high number of car theft have caused some alarm in Bay Ridge last week. Here’s a roundup:

• A motorcycle jacker robbed one man’s 2008 Yamaha on July 22 from a spot on 79th Street between 13th and 14th Avenues.

•A thief jacked a 2001 Dodge Caravan from a spot on 72nd Street between 13th and 14th avenues sometime between July 21 and 7:30 am on July 22.
