Savage attack

A woman was robbed and beaten at knifepoint outside of the troubled NY Perks bar on Smith Street on Feb. 26.

The 40-year-old victim told cops she had left the bar, which is near Warren Street, at midnight and was suddenly attacked near Butler Street outside of Angry Wades, another bar, by two men who approached her from behind, put a knife to her neck, and threw her to the pavement.

The violent duo made off with a Louis Vuitton handbag containing 13 credit cards, $70, two gift cards and a cellphone.

Smooth criminal

A dry-skinned dope stole 10 bottles of Oil of Olay moisturizer from a Smith Street drug store on Feb. 19.

Cops said that when the man was confronted by Rite Aid security at around 10:30 pm, he threatened the person with a knife and warned, “Stay away.” The crook then fled the store, which is near President Street, making off with his lotions, valued at $83.

Dental damn

Two men stole more than $1,000 worth of dental hygiene products from a Court Street drug store on Feb. 20.

A 39-year-old store worker told cops that the two men made off with $1,536 worth of oral health merchandise at around 10:50 am, plus an MP3 player.

The pair then fled the store, located near Dean Street.

Sky fright

Someone burglarized a Butler Street home between Feb. 20 and Feb. 23.

The 64-year-old victim said he left his house, located near Court Street, at around 9 am on Feb. 20, and when he returned three days later, he discovered that $200 and an iPhone were gone.

Cops said the cat burglar came in, and left, through a skylight.

Camera snapped

Someone stole a high-end camera from a car on Henry Street on Feb. 26.

The 41-year-old victim said she left her 2003 silver Toyota near Fourth Place at around 6:30 am and when she returned at 11:30 am, the driver’s-side window was damaged, and a $1,500 Leica camera and $250 gym bag were gone.
