An offended woman punched a pregnant woman in the belly inside their Wythe Avenue building on April 7 — all because she didn’t hold the door open for her.

The irritated assailant blew up at the victim, shouting, “You know you didn’t hold the door for me. When you have your baby I am gonna f— you up!”

And if that wasn’t enough, the offended woman grabbed the future mom’s cellphone and then punched the six-month pregnant lady in the stomach in the 10 pm incident near Clymer Street.

Electronics haul

A sneaky thief lifted enough electronics from an apartment on Boerum Street to make his own movie on April 8.

The burglar slipped through an unlocked rear window at about 2:15 pm and entered the building near Bushwick Avenue, stealing two cameras, a video camera, a computer and a projector — worth a total of $2,700 — before sneaking out and fleeing.

Wheels to go

A cycling crook took a brand new bike in front of a Powers Street building on April 4 while its owner was inside.

The thief grabbed the unsecured bike, which cops valued at $2,500, at 8 am and rode away down Union Street as its owner slept.

Cash out

A gun-toting bandit and his sidekick demanded cash from a couple at White and McKibbin streets on April 10.

One of the robbers flashed a handgun and yelled, “Don’t move! Give me all your cash!” at about 1 am while the other collected a phone and $90 from the two startled individuals before fleeing.

Bad pot

Four thugs smashed victim in the head with a clay pot on Bedford Avenue on April 10.

The assailants approached their victim near Grand Street at about 2:30 am and bashed him over the head with the massive vase before fleeing.

Fight night

Three violent hooligans beat up three victims after an argument on Flushing Avenue on April 10 — but were quickly collared.

The thugs, who did not know their victims, got into a fight at 5:40 am near Harrison Avenue and soon took turns kicking and punching one victim after hitting him over the head with a bottle, cutting another on his arm and wrist, and stabbing the third in his stomach and his back.

The three alleged criminals were arrested two hours later.

School’s out

A quartet of punks looking for trouble cut a teenage woman’s arm on Humboldt Street on April 9.

The violent perps approached their victim near Montrose Avenue at 3:30 pm as she was walking home from school, cut the victim’s arm and punched her chest and face. The perps fled as the victim was sent to Woodhull Hospital for her injuries.

Phone swipe

A perp took the victim’s phone in a school playground on Walton Street on April 9.

The thief approached his victim at around 3:50 pm near Harrison Avenue and said, “Just give me your phone.”

The victim, fearing for her safety, surrendered the T-Mobile Sidekick, sending the perp on his way.

Toyotas taken

Despite all the recalls, at least two thieves wanted Toyotas last week. Here’s a roundup:

• A wily thief stole a 2002 sedan that had been parked on Montrose Avenue near Lorimer Street on April 9 . The owner told cops that he returned to the spot at 2 pm.

• A thief stole a new Camry that had been parked on Penn Street near Bedford Avenue at 9 pm on April 9. The victim told cops that he discovered that his $25,000 car was missing three days later — and also noticed that $5,000 in computer equipment and clothing had been taken.

Computer crook

A brigand sneaked into an unlocked apartment on Grand Street on April 11, and made off with a laptop and its charger while the victim was at the park.

The thief entered the apartment through an unlocked front door in the building, which is near Leonard Street, at 7:30 pm, and got away with a Macbook and $100 in accessories.

Legal studies

Two juvenile perps lured their victim into a third-floor bathroom of the Grand Street Campus on Grand Street on April 9, took his phone and iPod, and threatened him if he squealed.

The perps robbed their classmate at around noon, taking a Blackberry and an iPod, as he was walking to class at the school complex which is near Bushwick Avenue. The victim reported the crime three days later because he feared for his safety.
