68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Grab bag

Two punks snatched a woman’s purse on 68th Street on Feb. 18, cops say.

The victim told police she was talking on her iPhone with an earpiece near 12th Avenue at 8:40 pm when the pair of perps came up behind her and yanked her bag.

The crooks pulled the handbag — with the mobile device and $500 in cash inside it — out of her grasp and fled toward 11th Avenue.

Lapped up

A villain jacked two laptops from a 69th Street apartment on Feb. 20, according to cops.

The victim said she left her home between Third and Fourth avenues at 12:10 pm and came back at 1:15 pm to see her belongings scattered about her bedroom and her Toshiba and Hewlett Packard computers gone.

Ripe apple

A lowlife heisted an iPad and $2,000 from a 67th Street apartment on Feb. 17, police report.

The victim told cops that she left her home between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 11:30 am and returned at 11:20 pm to find the rear window of her ground-floor apartment open and her pricey device and cash stash missing.
