Ruffian roughs up and robs guy

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Ugly mug

A brute beat and robbed a guy on the corner of Third Avenue and Senator Street in Bay Ridge on Sept. 18.

The ogre punched his victim in the back of the head at 5:20 am, sending him falling to the ground, police said. The fiend continued to pummel the poor sod, eventually taking his wallet and running off, officials said.

Copper copped

A punk smashed through the door to a Bay Ridge Avenue home and stole copper pipes sometime between Sept. 12 and Sept. 14.

The intruder got into the home between 13th and 14th avenues in Dyker Heights by breaking the glass on a rear door sometime between 6 pm that Saturday and 9 am the following Monday, police said.

Sleeper cell

A sneak plucked a cellphone from a 66th Street home while the resident slept on Sept. 16.

The victim was snoozing in her bedroom between 10th and 11th avenues in Dyker Heights at 6 am when a guy reached through her bedroom window and grabbed an iPhone, police said.

Vigilant vigilante

A 92nd Street man caught the man who he said burglarized his apartment on Sept. 20.

The hero was in the hallway of his apartment building between Third and Fourth avenues in Bay Ridge at 12:50 pm when he saw the less-than-stealthy suspect leaving his flat — allegedly with a Coach purse that didn’t belong to him, police said.

The resident held the suspected scoundrel until cops showed up and cuffed him, officials said.

Van-ishing act

A huckster drove off in the van he had just sold to a guy on 72nd Street on Sept. 15.

The burned buyer paid the stranger he met near 12th Avenue in Dyker Heights at 9 pm $2,600 for a Chrysler mini-van, but after he forked over the cash, the dealer got into the van and sped away, police said.
