Robbed on train

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Train robbery

Two thugs mugged a woman at knife point on the R train on April 18, the victim told police.

The woman said she and the dastardly duo boarded the train at the 95th Street station at 1:30 pm. As the cars lurched forward, one of the punks flashed a knife and demanded the victim hand over her Macbook, I-Phone, camera, credit cards, Metrocard, and cash — all of which was valued at $1,854.

The two thieves fled the subway car at the 86th Street stop, the victim told police.

Grab bag

A jerk stole a Bay Ridge woman’s purse while she was shopping on April 22, according to cops.

The victim was outside the Three Guys from Brooklyn supermarket at the corner of 65th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway at 5:45 pm when she set her bag down for a minute to pick out some veggies. When she reached back, the victim said her bag — with her credit cards, identification, keys, and Droid phone — was gone.

Credit card swipe

A thief snatched a woman’s wallet at a Bay Ridge nightspot on April 15, police were told.

The woman said she was partying at the 93 Lounge on 93rd Street between Third and Fourth avenues at 2:30 am when a fight started and people began rushing toward the doors.

The woman said she felt a hand pull her wallet from her pocket during the mad dash outside.

Two days later, the victim said she the club’s management called to tell her they’d found the wallet in the bathroom, but her credit cards were missing.

Smells funny

A pair of musk-loving punks yanked $2,308 in cologne and perfume from a Bay Ridge Walgreens on April 18, an employee reported.

The two scent-fiends picked up the pricey perfume at the drug store on Third Avenue between 94th and 95th streets at 11 pm and walked out half an hour later. Security cameras captured the crime and cops said they’re looking at the tapes.

Error

A bandit picked up a lady’s purse — with her precious Yankees’ tickets inside — at a popular Bay Ridge restaurant on April 21.

The baseball-loving victim told cops she left her purse sitting on a chair when she left Cebu Bar & Bistro on Third Avenue near 88th Street at 7:30 pm Saturday. When she realized what she had done and went back for her bag a few hours later, her bag, as well as her iPhone, glasses, credit cards, and game tickets, were gone.
