Burglar steals sleeping woman’s electronics

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Heavy sleeper

A tip-toeing crook swiped a video game system from a sleeping woman on 10th Street on Sept. 17.

The 27-year-old victim told cops she went to bed in her apartment near Third Avenue at midnight, then woke up seven hours later and discovered her window open — and the front door propped open with a brick. That’s when she noticed her 47-inch TV and Nintendo Wii gone.

Stabbed on Second

Cops say a violent creep beat up a man on Second Avenue on Sept. 23.

The 37-year-old victim told police a thug sliced his arms, torso and back with a knife near 13th Street at 4 am, then fled. Cops arrested a 26-year-old suspect the same day.

Van scam

A crook stole a van on Second Avenue on Sept. 22.

The 29-year-old victim told cops he parked and locked his red Ford van near Seventh Street at 3 am, then came back at noon and discovered it gone — with no sign of broken glass.

Air heads

Clumsy thieves tried to break into an apartment on Second Street on Sept. 17 — but got scared off when the tenant screamed.

The 29-year-old victim told cops she was typing on her computer inside her home near Fifth Avenue at 2 pm when she heard a group of people attempt to remove her air conditioning unit. She screamed and the perps fled — making off with nothing.

Gold gone

A crook swiped some gold jewelry and cash from an apartment on 15th Street on Sept. 17.

Hyundai heist

A jerk stole a car on Sixth Avenue on Sept. 21.

The 65-year-old victim told cops she parked her black 2008 Hyundai in front of PS 282 near Berkeley Place at 12:30 am, then came back at 8 pm and found the trusty ride gone — with no sign of broken glass.

Nissan nabbed

A thief jacked a car parked on President Street sometime between Sept. 17 and Sept 21.
