62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

T for Trouble

A brute struck a woman for her iPhone on Avenue T on May 23, police reported.

The victim told cops she was standing with her baby carriage between W. Fourth and W. Fifth streets, talking on her phone at 11 am, when, suddenly, the lout punched her in the face from behind. The goon then grabbed her phone and fled, cops said.

Smoked out

A crook stole a man’s phone and cigarettes inside the Bay Parkway N train station on May 24 — and added insult to injury by lighting up in front of him, according to cops.

The victim said he was waiting for the train in the station near the corner of W. Seventh Street when the lowlife came up to him.

“Do you have five dollars?” the punk supposedly prodded.

The victim said no, prompting the villain to stick a hand in his pocket and tell the man he had a gun, according to a report.

“Give me your phone if you don’t want to get hurt,” the scoundrel allegedly ordered.

The victim turned over his mobile device, and the bandit then demanded his cigarettes, too, the report says. The goon proceeded to light one cancer stick and smoke it in front of the victim before taking off, police said.

Beats dropped

A trio of treasonous no-goodniks robbed a man of his pricey headphones and mobile device inside the 18th Avenue N train station on May 19, according to the authorities.

The victim said he got off the train at the stop between 63rd and 64th streets at 6:30 pm and started climbing the stair when the threatening threesome stopped him halfway up and threw him against the wall.

One pulled off the victim’s Beats by Dre brand earphones and handed them to one of the other goons, while the third lowlife reached into the victim’s pocket and took his cellphone, cops said. Triumphant, the triumvirate then fled the station. police stated.

Not so EZ

A crook took a cellphone and an EZ Pass transponder from a car parked on W. Sixth Street overnight on May 19, cops reported.

The victim recalled leaving the vehicle with its rear driver’s-side door unlocked between Highlawn Avenue and Avenue S at 7 pm. When he came back the next day, he discovered his mobile device and toll pass gone, police stated.

Formula for theft

Two shoplifters walked out of an 86th Street pharmacy with electronics, baby formula, and a pack of gum on May 23, police stated.

Security cameras captured the pair entering the drug store between Bay 40th and Bay 41st streets at 7:30 pm, according to law enforcement officials. The tapes show the duo grabbing gadgets, Similac, and Trident from the shelves, then walking out the back door, cops said.
