Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
A gun-toting villain held up a man for his iPhone and duffel bag aboard a Manhattan-bound N train on April 12, cops say.
The victim said he got on the subway at the Stillwell Avenue station on Surf Avenue at 2 am and immediately passed out. When he awoke, he was nearing the Eighth Avenue stop — and a fiend was standing over him, demanding his belongings. The victim initially refused, but the crook pulled a black firearm and ordered him to hand over his bag and mobile device.
This time, the drowsy passenger complied, and gave up the gadget and the duffel — with his clothes, shoes, and phone charger inside. The scoundrel got off at the station at the corner of 62nd Street.
A punk smashed the passenger-side window of a car parked on Seventh Avenue and made off with the swag inside on April 8, police report.

A lowlife swiped four cameras from a 72nd Street gallery on April 6, according to cops.

Two crooks invaded an 11th Avenue apartment on April 11, but left without taking a thing, authorities allege.
The building owner said her son pulled up to the property between 74th and 75th streets at 4:25 pm and saw the male-female pair heading out the front door. When the young man went inside, he found a length of pipe next to a broken-in door — but noticed nothing had been taken.
A punk ripped off thousands in cash and jewelry from a 77th Street home on April 12, cops claim.
The victim said he left his home between 12th and 13th avenues at 10:15 am to go to the hardware store. When he opened his front door again at 12:30 pm, he felt a breeze coming from inside, and called out his son’s name.
A loud bang sounded in response, and the victim fled in fear, then dialed 911. On returning to the scene, he saw that a burglar had pried open his back door and stolen $1,000 in cash, a diamond ring, and a jade pendant.
