Digital dig

A tech-loving jerk stole a bunch of electronics from a man on Sterling Place on Nov. 19.

The 51-year-old victim told cops that he was between Vanderbilt and Flatbush avenues at 10:05 pm and was removing a bag filled with his camera, tablet and iPod from his car.

That’s when a geeky criminal grabbed the satchel and fled.

Fire no escape

A self-pleasuring creep scared a woman on Underhill Avenue on Nov. 21.

The 30-year-old victim told cops that she was inside her apartment between St. Johns and Sterling places at 7:55 pm when she heard a noise. She looked outside to find a man masturbating on her fire escape.

He fled before more came of the incident.
