Wack job brutally assaults mailman


Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Going postal!

Some wack job smacked a mailman in the head on Bay 41st Street on Jan. 8.

The employee told cops that the assailant started following him as he was delivering mail for the United States Postal Service between Bath and Benson avenues at 9:30 pm and said, “What you said?” before hitting the worker with an unknown object.

The attacker ran off, and the mailman suffered minor lacerations and pain to his head, authorities said. 

Home invasion

Some lowlife broke into a woman’s 84th Street house and stole her belongings sometime between Jan. 8 and Jan. 9.

The victim told cops that she left her house between 16th and 17th avenues at 10 am on Jan. 8 and returned drunk at 5 am the next morning. When she woke up at 6 pm that evening, she realized that a bandit had nabbed clothes, sneakers, purses, and a book bag from her closet, she told police. 

Watch out!

Police arrested a man for stealing watches from a woman on 21st Avenue on Jan. 5.

The victim told cops that she met up with the robber  between 71st and 72nd streets at 5 pm after agreeing to sell him some watches on Facebook. After the seller handed over the jewelry for him to try on, the bandit pushed the victim and rode off on his motorcycle — at least until a nearby police officer chased him down and cuffed him.

Punch perp

A knave punched a 58-year-old man and stole his wallet on Avenue T on Jan. 5.

The victim told cops that the robber socked him in the back of the head on the corner of W. Sixth Street at 5:20 pm and snagged his wallet from his back pocket as the victim was on the ground. The assailant ran eastbound on Avenue T with the wallet, which contained the victim’s credit card and IDs.
