Black ops

A man clad in black clothes robbed a woman at gunpoint as she entered her 66th Street building on Feb. 24.

The 33-year-old victim told cops she entered the building, between 13th and 14th avenues, at around 9:45 pm. After she pushed open the front door, the suspect appeared behind her and pushed her against the wall. The thug then held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her unless she handed over her purse.

The victim did as she was told, and the suspect fled with her bag, which contained various debit and credit cards.

Gym rat

Someone stole more than $1,200 from a locker inside of a Third Avenue gym on Feb. 25.

The 35-year-old victim told police he entered the gym, between 71st and 72nd streets, for his daily workout at around 8:30 am and locked his wallet in a locker. When he returned for his things about two hours later, he noticed the lock had been broken off and his wallet was nowhere in sight.

82 skidoo

Someone stole a wallet and a $250 cellphone out of a car parked on 82nd Street on March 1.

The 32-year-old owner of the car told cops she left the vehicle between Ninth and 10th avenues at around noon. When she returned nearly six hours later, she found one of the car’s windows had been smashed, and her purse and phone were both missing from the glove compartment.
