The assault occurred between 78th and 79th streets at around 8:45 pm. The man sustained swelling and bruising from the attack, according to the report, which added that the brutes fled to the D train station at 79th Street and New Utrecht Avenue following the theft.

Stealthy straphanger

The car owner told police the theft occurred at 85th Street at around 9:30 am, and that she learned of the illicit charges when she called to cancel her credit cards.

Couldn’t finish the job

An aspiring burglar broke into an 86th Street business on May 29, leaving the front door open and moving items around but leaving with nothing, police said.

Couldn’t lock it in

Locked door

A nogoodnik tried to break into a woman’s garage at her 73rd Street home on May 31.
