Smoke ’em

A thug beat a man with a golf club on E. 18th Street on Aug. 8, because the victim wouldn’t give him a cigarette.

The victim told police that he was near Avenue R at 6:50 pm, when the punk asked him for a cigarette. The victim refused, so the villain took his golf club to the victim’s arms and legs, cops said.


A crook burglarized a woman’s house on E. 26th Street on Aug. 11 — taking more than $1,500 worth of electronics.

The victim told police that she was sleeping in her house between Avenues S and T at 3 am, when she woke up and discovered her house had been ransacked while she slept. Her rear door had been left unlocked, letting the bandit slip in and nab her $1,500 laptop, $150 camera, and $50 phone, cops said.

Sex attack

A thug sexually assaulted a woman on Avenue W on Aug. 11.

The victim told police that she was near E. 19th Street at 4:15 am when the creep grabbed her from behind.

“Don’t make any noise,” he croaked, before lifting up the struggling woman’s skirt and attempting to remove her underwear, according to police. When he was unsuccessful, he fled west-bound on Avenue W.


A crook pilfered a woman’s home on Plumb First Street on Aug. 7, taking more than $2,500 worth of jewelry — including her engagement ring.

The victim told police that she left her home between Avenue W and Allen Avenue at 1 pm, and returned an hour later to find her apartment ransacked. The thief made off with a $400 pair of white stone earrings, a $1,500 tennis bracelet, a $10 gold bracelet, a $100 gold ring, and her $600 engagement ring, according to police.

Coed beat down

Two men, ages 26 and 46 — as well as a 43-year-old woman — were arrested for beating a man on Avenue U on Aug. 10.

The victim told police that he was near Nostrand Avenue at 11 pm when the suspects attacked, kicking and punching his body several times and his face once.

Get a map

A bandit looted a man’s car that he left parked along E. 21st Street on Aug. 10, taking his pricey navigation system.

The victim told police that he left his car between Avenues Y and Z at 9 pm, and returned later to find his front passenger-side window busted in, and his Garmin global positioning system, worth $230, missing.

Bad deal

Cops are hunting a dim-witted thief after he tried to sell a delivery guy his own stolen bicycle on E. 16th Street on Aug. 10.

The victim told police that he was between Kings Highway and Quentin Road at 10:10 pm when the crook approached him and offered to sell him a bike. However, the victim recognized the bicycle as his, which had been stolen on Aug. 4, and the thief took off, again, with the victim’s bike.

Small-time crook

A thief pilfered a man’s E. 26th Street house on Aug. 11, taking $80.

The victim told police that he was sleeping in his house between Quentin Road and Avenue R at midnight, when he woke up to find his office in shambles and his cash missing.

Armed and apple picking

A gun-wielding crook robbed a woman in front of her E. 24th Street apartment on Aug. 11, taking her iPhone.

The victim told police that she was about to enter her apartment building between Kings Highway and Avenue P at 11:20 pm when the crook approached her and drew a gun.

“Give me your iPhone, don’t scream,” he barked, before taking the victim’s valuables and fleeing.
