78th Precinct

Park Slope

Dirty dinner

A jerk beat up a delivery guy on Sterling Place on Oct. 21.

The 29-year-old worker told cops that he was delivering food between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 9:30 pm when the thug ran up, punched him in the face and snatched a meal worth $10 bag from him.

The poor grub slinger then rushed to New York Methodist Hospital with a bloody face.

Real sicko

A scoundrel snatched a credit card from a woman at New York Methodist Hospital on Sixth Street on Oct. 21.

The 47-year-old victim told cops she was at the emergency room inside the medical center near Eighth Avenue at 3 am when the thug reached into her purse and snatched her reading glasses and a credit card. The jerk then used the card to buy $400 worth of subway passes.

This kind of crime happens frequently inside that location.

Library loser

A quick-moving thief swiped a wallet from a mom at a library on Fourth Avenue on Oct. 21.

The 39-year-old victim told cops she put her wallet inside a bag, then set it on top of a stroller at the public library branch near Pacific Street at 11:30 am. She stepped away for a minute and later discovered the bag — and the $150 inside — gone.

Gym rat

A crook swiped a Swiss watch from a locker at the Ninth Street YMCA on Oct. 22.

The 34-year-old victim told cops he left his silver TAG Heuer watch inside a locker at the facility between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 6:30 pm, then went for a sweaty workout. He came back two hours later and found the $500 watch, along with his leather wallet, gone.

Gadget gone

A thief jacked a laptop from a factory warehouse on Third Street on Oct. 17.

The 30-year-old victim told cops that he set his Alienware laptop inside an office near Third Avenue at 7 pm, then walked away for 15 minutes. That was enough time for the crook to steal the $1,400 gadget.
