Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
Quick as a flash
A no-goodnik threatened a deliveryman with a knife and then stole his chain and $25 on Ridge Boulevard on Jan. 12.
The lout flashed the knife and stole the goods at the corner of Bay Ridge Parkway just after 7 pm, when the man was delivering food, police reported. The thief then fled on foot on Ridge Boulevard, according to authorities.
A pack of perps stole about $12,000 from a Third Avenue restaurant on Jan. 8.

A miscreant broke through a wall in an 86th Street store on Jan. 7 but left empty-handed.
