A rough mugging

Grab and run

A 71-year-old woman was shoved to the ground and robbed of her purse during a lightning-fast exchange with a mugger on Ridge Boulevard on May 12.

The woman told cops that she was near 82nd Street just after midnight when the thief attacked her, grabbed her purse, which contained $100, then jumped into a white sedan.

Gunning for deliveries

Police are looking for two gun-toting goons responsible for mugging a delivery man for the Vesuvio Restaurant on May 17.

The 24-year-old told cops that he was dropping off an order on 72nd Street at Eighth Avenue when the two masked suspects pulled a gun and racked the slide.

They then punched the victim in the mouth, and ran off with his wallet, cellphone and $600.

Tired out

Thieves broke into an Infiniti parked on Gelston Avenue last week, taking a wallet and the vehicle’s pricey two front tires on May 12.

The car’s 23-year-old owner told cops that he had parked near the foot of Gelston Avenue at 2 am and returned four hours later to find that the window was broken, his wallet gone and two tires missing.

Boiling over

Thieves heisted two boilers and a furnace from a 70th Street home on May 9, police said.

The perps used a dolly to cart out the three big pieces from the home, which is near Eighth Avenue, at about noon.

Ridge raid

Thieves with fancy tastes took a Sterling silver tea set, a Cartier watch and a Lalique vase from a Ridge Boulevard home on May 5.

Cops said that the thief opened an unlocked front window between 9:30 am and 4 pm to swipe the luxe goods from the house, which is near 94th Street.

The perps also got away with a television and two computers.
