Knife-wielding thief robs woman in broad daylight

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights

Thugged

A barbarous robber held a knife to a woman’s throat and stole her cash and iPhone on 80th Street on June 29.

The victim told cops she was nearing Ridge Boulevard at around 2:45 pm when a man pulled a black knife out of his waistband and held it against her throat, ripping her phone and $250 out of her hands.

“I’m going to slit your f—ing throat if you call the cops,” he told her, before running off.

Does not compute

Thieves busted into a man’s Eighth Avenue home on June 27 and stole his laptop.

The victim told police he left his home, which is near 67th Street, around 11 am. When he returned at 9:30 that night, his found his front door broken down, his computer missing, and his apartment trashed.

Clubbed and stabbed

Knife-wielding thugs stabbed two men as they left a 62th Street nightclub on June 28.

The victims told cops they were leaving the V Lounge near Eighth Avenue around 1 am when someone came up behind them, and stabbed one in the chest twice and the other in the armpit.

The victims were taken to Maimonides Medical Center.

Big score

Thieves made off with a big score — nearly 50 grand in cash and jewelry — after robbing a man’s 74th Street home on June 26.

The victim told cops he was on vacation when robbers made their move. When returned to his house between 10th Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway on July 3, he found that someone had busted in his back door and lifted $8,000 in cash, $40,000 in jewelry, and a computer.
