Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Speedy getaway

A sly crook looking to buy a man’s dirt bike stole the motorcycle during a test drive on 82nd Street on Oct. 4, said police.

The victim told police he met the baddie, who said he wanted to buy the bike, between 13th and 14th avenues at 12:30 pm, but when the trickster took the black Honda dirt bike out for a test drive, he never returned.

Nice try

An oaf broke into a Third Avenue bar on Oct. 3 and ran off with an empty cash register, said police.

The burglar threw an object though the glass front door of the estbalishment between 92nd and 93rd streets at 3:25 am and swiped the cash register, said authorities. But the register was emptied before closing, said police.

Bodega brawl

A brute tried to steal a cash register from an 86th Street bodega on Oct. 3 and beat the clerk in the process, said police.

The victim told police that he tried to stop a man from removing the cash register of the store between Third and Fourth avenues at 8:15 am, but was punched multiple times in the head and shoulder.

The robber ran out of the store and tossed the register into the back of his white station wagon, but the determined clerk managed to wrangle the cash register back from the man before he drove off, said police.
