Fiend tackles and robs woman

62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Tackled for cash

A brute tackled a woman and tried to steal her bag on Bay 23rd Street on Jan. 19.

The victim told police she was at 86th Street at 1:45 am when a man drove by in a sports utility vehicle and a woman jumped out, and then attacked the victim. She grabbed the victim’s bag and dragged her to the ground, and when the victim threw $30 at the assailant, she ran away.

Bilked and bailed

A lying lout stole $80 and a black purse from a woman’s 19th Avenue home on Jan. 12 by pretending to be an electrician.

The con arrived at the woman’s home at 82nd Street at about 4:45 pm and told her he wanted to look at her electric bills. The woman didn’t notice the missing items after the liar left.

Dashed with the cash

A thief stole $300 from a woman’s W. Eighth Street bedroom on Jan. 13.

The crook entered through the back window of the apartment between Bay Parkway and Avenue O at around 1:30 pm and fled in an unknown direction. The woman’s bedroom was ransacked and items in the kitchen were out of order, police said.

Time for a vacation

A good-for-nothing stole a man’s government travel card from his 16th Avenue home on Jan. 14.

The criminal entered the 67th Street home’s bedroom window at about 6:30 am and then fled in an unknown direction.
