Packing heat

A gunman robbed the Seventh Avenue Shell gas station on April 8, but ended up making his escape by tossing a microwave through the store’s window.

Cops say that the perp entered the Shell, which is between 64th and 65th streets, at around 2:50 pm. The thief, clad in sunglasses and a white jacket, flashed a silver handgun at the clerk and demanded cash. The employee obeyed, but then ran out of the store, locked the perp inside and called 911.

The perp responded by grabbing a microwave and throwing it through the window. He fled through the shards of broken glass.

Gas gunman

Two armed bandits stole $7,000 from a Seventh Avenue gas station on April 6.

An employee at the Gulf station, which is between 85th and 86th streets, told cops that two perps wearing ski masks charged in at around 2 am. They pointed black semi-automatic handguns at the employee’s back and demanded money. The victim obeyed and the perps fled.

Someone jumped a woman outside a Third Avenue bar on April 2 to steal her designer purse.

The victim told cops that she was in front of the Salty Dog, which is between 76th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway, at around 2:35 am when an unknown perp shoved her and then began to hit her.

The victim dropped her Dolce & Gabana bag in the scuffle and the perp made off with the goods, which included her wallet, cell, keys and camera.

Cleaned out

Mean mug

A 16-year-old kid was beat up and mugged by several ruffians on April 9 at the corner of Bay Ridge and Fourth avenues.

The teenage victim told cops that he was approached by the uknown perps at around 2 am. They punched and kicked him before jacking his chain, vest, hat, phone and cash.

Gadget grab

A thief who drives a black Ford Taurus broke into a 63rd Street apartment on April 6 to steal a laptop and a camera.

There were no signs of forced entry, but her building’s video footage shows an unknown man entering her apartment, leaving with a bag and driving away in the Ford.

Pat K from Bay Ridge says:
Is it my imagination or are we over run with this latest wave of young human garbage that hangs in the shadows or broad daylight . Cops on the beat - street deter crime. even at night. Call your Pct and complain.

is there any reason why thugs and criminals are allowed to immigrate with those wanting to have a better life. if you have not noticed they are here folks and have no respect or concept of what it is to be a law abiding citizen.
