Crooked Casanova

A thug robbed a 15-year-old girl of her cellphone on Fourth Avenue on Sept. 13 after his teenage victim wouldn’t give up her telephone number.

The victim said she was nearing 85th Street at 12:45 pm when the thief walked over and began chatting her up.

After a few minutes, the thief asked her for her digits, but she refused, sparking the robbery, police were told.

Evil eye

Four punks pounded on a 41-year-old on Sept. 13 following a few unwelcome glances on Colonial Road.

The victim was between 74th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway at 12:30 am when he looked over at the four young toughs, sparking an argument.

“What the f— are you looking at?” one of the thugs asked before all four lashed out at the victim, hitting him in the head with a bottle.

Apartment sweep

A thief removed over $4,000 in jewelry from a Fort Hamilton Parkway apartment between Sept. 11 and 12.

The 32-year-old tenant told cops that he had left his home, which is between 90th and 92nd streets, during the day on Sept. 11, but returned the next day at 5:45 pm to find that five bracelets, four rings and two necklaces had been taken.

The thief had apparently entered through an unlocked window leading to a fire escape.

Lef ransacked

A burglar tore up a Fourth Avenue apartment on Sept. 13 in a thorough search for jewelry and electronics.

The thief forced open the front door to the home between 68th and Senator streets sometime after 1 pm, taking two laptop computers, a Tiffany bracelet, 35 DVDs and a Movado watch.

Car swiped

A speed demon made off with a 2001 Ford Taurus parked inside a 66th Street lot on Sept. 14.

The 59-year-old owner left the car between 11th and 12th avenues at 8:30 pm and returned an hour later to find it gone.
