A brute broke his way into a woman’s 76th Street home on Dec. 6, where he beat the homeowner before taking her valuables.

The victim told police she was inside her home between 16th and New Utrecht avenues at 12:05 am when the suspect busted a basement window and slunk inside.

The victim tried to physically arrest the home invader, but only managed to earn herself a black eye for the effort, cops said. The scoundrel ended up making off with a North Face jacket and $300, according to police.

Kids these days

Three teens beat and robbed a 52-year-old man on Avenue O on Dec. 6, taking his cash and cellphone.

The victim told police he was heading home from the train between W. Fourth and W. Fifth streets at 8:05 pm when the delinquents jumped him. The terrors punched the man in the face, before looting $500 and the phone from his pockets, cops said.

Fat sack

Two bandits ambushed a man on Bay Parkway on Dec. 4 and stole his phone and backpack.

The victim told police he was between 85th and 86th streets at 4:30 am when the two rapscallions slunk up from behind him. One of the crooks snatched the bag off his back, while the other thief slugged him in the face, before the duo fled on foot, cops said.

Pit stop

Two thieves stole a man’s bag and phone at knifepoint on Avenue S on Dec. 1.

The victim told police he was between W. 11th and W. 12th streets at 11:40 pm when the dastardly duo piled out of a red car and pressed a knife to his face. The thieves then took the man’s bag and phone, before jumping back in their ride and squealing off, according to police.

A carjacker stole a man’s ride after breaking into his Bay 10th Street apartment and stealing the keys on Dec. 4.

The victim told police that the lout broke into his home between Bath and Cropsey avenues at 6:30 pm through a rear door. The snake grabbed the victim’s car and house keys, waltzed out into his driveway and sped off with his car, cops said.

Clean getaway

A burglar ransacked a man’s 80th Street home on Dec. 6 while the man was taking a shower.

The victim told police that he was attending to his personal hygiene inside his home between 18th and 19th avenues at 8:15 pm, while the nogoodnik was busy tearing his bedroom apart in search of loot.

By the time the victim had dried off, the rogue had fled through a window with $900 and a designer handbag, cops said,
