A three-way beating

3 on 1

Three thugs jumped a 20-year-old guy on 11th Avenue on Jan. 4, making off with the victim’s baseball cap and $20.

The victim told cops that he was near 66th Street at around 6 pm when three unknown dudes approached and punched him in the head. Before he knew it, the perps were running off with his cash and hat.

Unsweet home

Someone broke into an 84th Street apartment to steal cash and jewelry when the resident was on vacation between Dec. 23 and Jan. 3.

The victim told cops that she was visiting family for 10 days. When she returned to the home, which is between 10th and 11th avenues, she found that her bedroom window was open and that the thief had made off with $500, a ring and a pricey watch.


A thief jacked an iPhone from a woman on 64th Street on Jan. 4.

Major heist

Thieves stole a cable box, laptop, jewelry and glassware from an 80th Street apartment sometime between Dec. 11 and Jan. 8.

The victim told cops that she was away from her pad, which is between Third and Fourth avenues, for almost a month. When she returned home, her prized possessions were gone.

Crime key

Someone stole cash, tech gear and jewelry on Jan. 9 from the 67th Street apartment after its tenant lost her keys yet did not change the locks.

The victim told cops that she was not in the home, which is between Fifth and Sixth avenues, between 3 and 5 pm, when the thief, who must have found her keys, entered.

Indeed, there were no signs of a forced entry into the house. But there was sign of a crime: the woman’s computer, television, video game system, jewelry and $100 were gone.
