62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Purse poacher

A purse snatcher robbed two women on 86th Street on July 7 — nabbing $1,382 and credit cards from both women.

The victim told police that she was between Bay 28th and Bay 29th streets at 10:10 pm, on her way to a Capitol One bank with a friend, when the crook grabbed both of their purses.

One of the victims was dragged 20 feet, before the strap on her purse broke and the crook made his escape, cops said.

Small haul

Two crooks clubbed a man on the back of his head — and then robbed him of a measly $3 — on 86th Street on July 1.

The victim told police that he was between 15th Avenue and Bay 10th Street at 11 pm when one of the thugs bashed him in the head, knocking him to the ground. The crooks then searched his pants’ pockets, but found only the paltry sum of cash, cops said.

Ransacked register

A bandit stole $800 from an 86th Street store on July 8.

The crook entered the business between 18th Avenue and Bay 19th Street at 8:35 am and ransacked the register before fleeing out of a second floor window, cops said.

Wedding crasher

A thief stole jewelry and $3,400 in cash from a man’s 64th Street apartment on July 8 — while the victim was at his sister’s wedding.

The victim told police that he left his home between 23rd and 24th avenues at 1 pm to attend his sister’s wedding, and returned later to find his bedroom window ajar. He then took a look around to find he was missing a watch, two necklaces, four rings, as well as the money, cops said.

Waist blade

Two knife-wielding thugs robbed a man on Benson Avenue on July 2, taking $100 and a cellphone.

The victim told police that he was near Bay 29th Street at 10:30 pm when the crooks ambushed, one drawing a knife and pointing it at the victim’s waist. One of the crooks then reached into the victim’s pants’ pockets, taking his valuables before fleeing in a white SUV.

Jewel thief

A crook robbed a woman’s W. 10th Street apartment on July 4 — taking jewelry, electronics, and $80.

The victim told police that she left her home between Avenue P and Quentin Road for work at 7:30 am, and returned later to find her front door open and her property missing.

The DVD safe

A thief pillaged a man’s 65th Street apartment on July 4, taking $1,900 from the victim’s hiding spot: a DVD case.

The victim told police that he left his home between Bay Parkway and 23rd Avenue at 2 pm, and returned to find that his apartment had been ransacked, and that his cash was nabbed from the DVD case.

Geezer goons

Two goons robbed a 65-year-old man on Quentin Road on July 2 — taking $110 and his Social Security card.

The victim told police that he was near W. First Street at 9:40 pm when one of the crooks grabbed his right arm and twisted it behind his back.

“Don’t move, you won’t get hurt,” the thief ordered, before his buddy grabbed the victim’s wallet from his pocket.
