Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights
A perp stripped a teen of his iPhone after pretending to pull a gun on him on 65th Street on July 13.
The victim told cops that the phone robber approached him at the corner of 11th Avenue around 2 pm and said that someone had taken his sister’s phone.
“I’m gonna get the phone back — either your way, or my way,” the perp said. “I already pulled a gun on someone else.”
The perp then simulated a firearm through the front of his pants, the victim told cops — though no gun was produced.
The victim handed over the phone, and the crafty robber took off.
What a tool!
Someone ripped off a man’s tools after disabling a security camera at his 85th Street house on July 15.
The victim told cops security footage showed a man entering his backyard between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard from the neighbor’s yard at 9 pm.
The sneak removed one of the cameras, but was not shown in the footage removing the $2,650 worth of power tools.
Lock your doors
