Film, shoot

A perp stole a fancy camera on 14th Street on April 15.

The 62-year-old victim told cops she set her Canon Rebel with a high-tech lens on the stairs outside her home near Seventh Avenue at 8 pm then walked inside. She came back five minutes later and discovered it gone.

Bad nap

A thief stole a portable video game player from a straphanger near Flatbush Avenue on April 22.

The victim told cops he fell asleep while riding a Manhattan-bound Q train near Seventh Avenue at 4:50 am. His sister woke him up a few minutes later and he then noticed his backpack was open — and his Nintendo 3DS was gone.

Stroller swipe

A crook snatched some cash from a shopper on Fifth Avenue on April 20.

The 34-year-old victim told cops she set her blue cloth wallet in a stroller while shopping at Life Boutique Thrift near 13th Street at 1:30 pm, then walked away to browse for clothes. She came back half an hour later and discovered her wallet — containing $12 and credit cards — had disappeared.

Free ride

A creep stole a motorcycle parked on Degraw Street between April 16 and 17.

The victim told cops he parked his 2002 Suzuki motorbike between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 7:30 pm and came back at 10:15 am. That was enough time for the jerk to swipe his ride, leaving no sign of broken bike parts.

Phone grab

A jerk jacked an iPhone from a woman on Sixth Avenue on April 19.

The 22-year-old victim told cops she stepped out of a cab at near 15th Street at 12:45 am then walked a few blocks holding her iPhone, which she kept inside a yellow case. That’s when a quick-moving man snatched the gadget and ran away.
