Brutal April Fool’s prank

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Sucker punch

Two thugs bashed a local immigrant’s teeth in and stole his wallet and neck chain after asking him to show them his green card on Third Avenue on April 1.

The man said that he was near 76th Street in front of Tanoreen Restaurant at 2:40 am when he became the victim of a nasty trick. Two goons in dark clothing called him over and asked him how he was doing, then requested he show them his identification. When the victim reached for his wallet, the pair of punks both punched him in the face, bloodying his mouth and knocking out several of his teeth, he told police. The crooks then took his wallet and gold necklace.

Bad odor

A thief kicked down the door of a Third Avenue apartment and made off with electronics and cologne while the tenant was away between March 30 and April 1.

The victim told cops he left his home between 73rd and 74th streets at 8 am on March 30 and came back on April 1 at 12:30 pm, only to find that his door was kicked in, and a TV, cable box, modem, surge protector, and his bottle of manly scent were all missing.

Unpleasant dreams

A crook came in to an Oliver Street home through the bathroom window while the homeowner was sleeping on March 27 — and snatched her computer, wallet, and briefcase.

The victim told the police that she dozed off in her apartment between Shore Road and Marine Avenue at 11 pm. When she woke up at 4:30 am, she realized that she had been robbed of her Macbook Pro, credit cards, suitcase, and identification.
