62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach


A gang of goons bludgeoned and stabbed a man on 71st Street on May 10, authorities say.

The victim told police he was near New Utrecht Avenue, headed home, at 12:10 am when a white van pulled up alongside him and three thugs jumped out and demanded his valuables.

The man refused, and the trio struck him in the face with a blunt object and stabbed him in the arm and chest — but took off without taking any of the victim’s property. The victim went to Maimonides Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

18th Avenue beasts

A pair of punks pummeled a man for $400 on 18th Avenue on May 7, police report.

The victim told cops he was drunk and walking between 72nd and 73rd streets at 7:30 pm when the two goons came up and started punching him. The savages then took the cash from his pocket and fled in a brown vehicle.

Hair-raising crime

Two brutes battered a woman for her bag on 85th Street on May 9, according to cops.

The victim reported that she was near 24th Avenue on her way home at 3 am when the despicable duo ran up behind her, grabbed her by the hair, and threw her to the ground.

“You’re not getting away from us, b----,” one of the thugs said.

The pair tore her purse — which held $80 — from her hands and ran away down 85th Street.

Minor threat

A trio of treacherous 20-somethings mugged a 12-year-old on 86th Street on May 13, cops say.

The victim said he was near the corner of Bay 35th Street at 4:05 pm and was heading to meet his mother at Stillwell Avenue when the three thugs surrounded him.

“Don’t make a scene or anything,” one of the crooks said. “What kind of phone you have?”

When the preteen didn’t answer, the perp tried to reach into his pocket, but the kid pushed his hand away.

“Get the knife, let’s stab him,” the lead lowlife said.

The boy then got scared and surrendered his mobile device.

Pain in the a--

Three fiends stabbed a man inside his 76th Street apartment building on May 11, cops report.

The victim said that the villains attacked him in the hallway of his building between 16th and 17th avenues at 4:25 am and stabbed him in the backside, right thigh, and right pinky. The man had to go to Lutheran Medical Center for care.
