Dog nappers hit Midwood home

Puppy predators

Three thieves raided an Avenue N home on Feb. 1, taking cash, cellphones, electronics — and a small puppy.

Residents inside the Midwood home said the thieves knocked on their door at 11 pm. When one of the victims answered, the thieves forced their way inside, holding five people at bay as they looted the place, scooping up the $1,500 puppy before leaving.

Child’s play

An 18-year-old Quentin Road woman was arrested on Feb. 3 after she held a knife to her mother’s throat while keeping the woman locked in her bedroom.

The 45-year-old victim was held hostage for three hours before her unhinged daughter made off with her earrings and rings — only to be arrested a short time later.

Skylight entry

Thieves broke into the Deep Mountain liquor store on Kings Highway on Feb. 5 after forcing open a rooftop skylight.

Workers at the store, which is between McDonald Avenue and E. 2nd Street, said the thief lowered himself into a vacant stairwell at 5:50 am and then kicked a hole into the store, where $3,520 was removed from the register.

Not so charitable

A thief swiped two charity boxes from David’s Health Foods on Avenue U on Feb. 4.

Workers at the store, which is between E. 22nd and E. 23rd streets, said the goon entered at 10:18 am, palmed the boxes and ran off before anyone noticed what was going on.

Camera crook

A thief tried to swipe a surveillance camera fixed outside an Ocean Parkway apartment building on Feb. 4 — but didn’t realize that he was going to be recorded while doing it.

Police arrested the 57-year-old suspect shortly after the 12:07 am theft, which happened between Quentin Road and Kings Highway, and was streaming to the victim’s computer in real time.

Cold feet

Two thugs jumped an 18-year-old on Ocean Avenue on Jan. 27, taking his sneakers, iPhone and coat.

The victim sustained cuts to his face, arms and torso as he tried to fight off the suspects near Kings Highway — one of which was armed with a box cutter.

Henry’s hooligans

A crew of thieves broke into Henry’s Deli on Avenue S on Jan. 28 and cleaned the place out of cash, cigarettes and New York Lottery scratch-offs.

Workers said they closed the eatery, which is between E. 29th Street and Nostrand Avenue, at 6:15 pm. Within the next 12 hours someone forced open a rear window, snuck in, and made off with the loot.

Mirror menace

A thief swiped the side view mirrors off a 2003 Mercedes Benz sitting parked on E. Third Street on Jan. 29.

The 33-year-old owner of the car left it parked between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 4 pm. The mirrors were discovered missing when the owner returned to the car by 11:50 am the next day.
