62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Number puncher

A brute battered a woman for her cellphone on W. 10th Street on May 26, police report.

The victim told cops she was near Highlawn Avenue on her way home at 10:30 pm with her iPhone in her hand when the thug ran up from behind her, punched her in the face, grabbed the gadget, and fled

‘Ace’ in the hole

A knife-wielding goon known only as “Ace” sliced a man’s face open on W. Ninth Street on May 25, according to cops.

The victim reported that he was near the corner of Avenue S at 4:38 am when “Ace” came up and slashed him across the left side of the head with the blade.

Hooked by crook

A cane-swinging savage beat another man in Bensonhurst Park on May 23, authorities allege.

The victim said he was practicing tai-chi in the greenspace near the corner of Cropsey Avenue and Bay Parkway at 1 pm when the fiend — who the victim claims had long verbally harassed him — struck him with the walking stick.

Staying clean

A pair of punks jacked soap and body wash from an 86th Street drug store on May 21, police state.

Surveillance tapes show the perps lifting the hygiene products from the pharmacy between 25th Avenue and Bay 41st Street at 8:20 am and walking out without paying.

Unholy act

Two blasphemous bandits raided a Bath Avenue church on May 22, cops say.

An eyewitness reported that the pair of profaners slipped like serpents into the house of worship between 18th Avenue and Bay 19th Street at 10 pm through a side window and made off with thousands of dollars in electronics.
