Big bullies

Some brutes robbed a teen while he was walking home from school on Eighth Street on Dec. 2, police said.

The robbers intercepted their mark near the corner of 62nd Street around 4:30 pm. One started going through the victim’s pockets and another hit him in the back of the head, the victim told cops. The nogoodniks got his iPhone and fled, police said.

Caught snoozing

Someone stole a man’s backpack containing his laptop and phone while he was asleep on the N train on Nov. 24.

The victim hopped on a Coney-bound N train at the 34th Street Herald Square stop in Manhattan around 1:30 am. He put his backpack on the seat next to him and fell asleep.

He woke up at the Fort Hamilton Parkway station and saw that someone had swiped his bag, along with his $1500 laptop and iPhone 6 that were in it, according to the police report.


A burglar broke into a home on Bay Ridge Avenue while his victim was at work on Dec. 3.

The victim left his apartment near the corner of Sixth and Seventh avenues around 9 am and came back around 4:20 pm to find his door was jammed shut. Once he finally got into the apartment, he saw someone had turned the place upside down. A window was damaged, a tell-tale sign of forced entry, according to police.

The burglar got away with an iPad, $800 in cash, two watches, some gold and silver certificates, and some two dollar bills the victim collected.
