Australian has one L of a ride

90th Precinct


Bad day, mate

Two perps mugged an Australian tourist on the Manhattan-bound L-train near Montrose Avenue on Dec. 1.

The perps approached the victim when the train was near Bushwick Avenue at 5:10 am, then pushed him out when the doors opened.

That’s when one of the thugs shouted, “Give me your stuff,” before removing the victim’s wallet and boarding the next Manhattan-bound train.

The victim headed the other direction to return to his hotel before calling the cops.

Bicycle thief

A bike-riding thief stole an iPhone from a woman on Keap Street on Dec. 3.

The woman told cops that she was near Hope Street at 5:15 pm when the cycling scumbag rolled up from behind her and snatched the phone from her hand.

House call

Two knife-wielding perps invaded a man’s Ainslie Street apartment on Nov. 29 and stole his cash and his phone.

The perps entered the apartment near Leonard Street at 10:20 pm, flashed their knives and pushed the tenant inside before taping his legs and arms and stealing his wallet and cellphone.

Three crimes

There were at least three break-ins last week:

• A thief stole a computer and $150 from a McKibbin Street loft on Dec. 2. The tenant left his apartment near White Street at 2:45 pm, but came back a half-hour later to find his cash and laptop computer gone.

• A thief stole two computers and a camera from an apartment on Broadway near Keap Street between 9 am and 8 pm on Nov. 30.

• A thief stole a man’s watch, laptop and booze from his S. Second Street apartment during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The tenant left the unit near Berry Street on Nov. 23 at 8:30 am, but when he returned three days later, he saw his stuff was missing.
