Window to the jewels

A good-for-nothing broke into a woman’s 85th Street home and stole $1,800 worth of jewelry sometime between the early evening of Feb. 2 and the afternoon of Feb. 4, police said.

The woman and her family left their home between 13th and 14th avenues at about 5 pm on Feb. 2 and returned at about 3:30 pm on Feb. 4, when they realized an intruder had entered through a second-floor rear bedroom window, breaking the screen and opening the unlocked window, according to the police report.

Scarfed it down

A wicked woman punched a Fourth Avenue store employee and stole a scarf on Jan. 30.

The victim told police a woman took a brown scarf from a rack outside the store between Bay Ridge and Ovington avenues at about 5:40 pm. When the victim approached the woman about it, she insisted that she did not take anything, punched the employee in the nose, and fled on foot in an unknown direction, officers reported.

Purse grab

The good-for-nothing grabbed the bag between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 7 pm, when he pushed the victim from the back, punched her on the head, and grabbed the bag before fleeing in a car.
