Goons swipe cash from Seventh Avenue bagel store

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Oy vey!

A thug swiped some cash from a bagel shop on Seventh Avenue on Jan. 24.

The owner of The Bagel Market near Union Street told cops that an early-shift worker noticed the front door of the shop was busted at 3:20 am, so he reviewed a surveillance camera tape. The tape caught two men grabbing $800 from the register and running out the front door.

Foul play

A crook jacked a wallet and iPhone from a basketball player on Ninth Street on Jan. 23.

The victim told cops that he set his jacket — with a wallet and cellphone inside a pocket — next to the basketball court at the YMCA near Sixth Avenue at 8:30 pm. He went to shoot some hoops, returned an hour later, and discovered that his brown leather wallet and iPhone were gone.

Bird brain

A thug stole a fancy handbag from a boutique on Fifth Avenue on Jan. 29.

4 real?

A ballsy jerk stole a cellphone from a straphanger on a Manhattan-bound 4 train on Jan. 23.

The victim told cops that she was holding an LG cellphone while on the train at 2:15 am. When the train pulled into the Grand Army Plaza station, the thief snatched the phone out of her hand and ran off the train before the doors closed.

No dinero

A hoodlum broke into a tasty tapas bar on Seventh Avenue — but took nothing — on Jan. 24.

A night guard told cops that a man broke the lock on the front door of Brookvin near 11th Street between 1 and 3:50 am, then opened the register but discovered no cash inside. He then ran right back out the way he came — empty-handed.

Van, damn

A thief stole a car parked on Third Street on Jan. 25.

The victim told cops that she parked a 1996 Plymouth Voyager van between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 10 pm. When she came back the next day at 6:30 pm, she discovered her ride gone — with no sign of broken glass.

Bracelet bandit

A crook swiped some jewelry from an apartment on St. Johns Place on Jan. 25.

The victim told cops that she left her home near Fifth Avenue at 10:10 am, went to work, and came back at 10 pm. That’s when she discovered her rear window, near a fire escape, unlocked — and two gold necklaces and a gold bracelet gone.

Kitchen getaway

A quick-moving jerk snatched some electronic goodies from an apartment on 12th Street on Jan. 24.

The victim told cops that he left his home near Prospect Park West at 7:45 pm. When he came back a couple of hours later, he noticed that his iPad and Dell laptop were gone — and his kitchen window was ajar.
