Waiting game

A highway robber stole a man’s car in a Neptune Avenue parking lot on May 4. 

The victim told police that he was waiting for his friend in the lot at the intersection of Marsha Rapaport Way when the savage came to his window at around 3:30 pm and threatened him with gun — before hopping in a riding off.


Robbers swiped $15,000 worth of equipment from a W. 19th Street construction site on May 1. 

An employee told police that the thieves broke into a trailer on the site between Mermaid and Surf avenues at around 5:30 pm and stole multiple power tools. 


Bandits stole security cameras and a laptop from an Ocean Parkway medical office on May 7. 

Police said the raiders broke in to the office at the intersection of Brighton Beach Avenue at around 5:30 pm and stole $1,850 worth of property.
