Shots fired

A pair of gunmen pulled a firearm and fired shots at a man on Benson Avenue on March 14.

Police say the shooters approached the man at Bay 19th Street around 8:30 pm, when they asked, “You with the savage?” before pulling out the gun and firing shots. The victim was unharmed, according to the report.

Tool time

A burglar broke the passenger-side window of a truck on 65th Street on March 15 and stole an array of construction tools.

The car was parked between 15th and 16th avenues, and the theft occurred around 3 pm, cops said.

Burgled Benz

A robber stole a Playstation Four and two pairs of Prada shoes from a Mercedes Benz parked on 79th Street on March 16.

The pilferer was walking down the block between Bay Parkway and 23rd Avenue around 1 pm pulling door handles, when he found the unlocked Mercedes and grabbed the goods, according to the report.

Frozen-out fraudster

A fraudster withdrew more than $6,600 from the checking and saving accounts of a Bay Parkway resident on March 12, the man reported to police on March 17.

The man, who lives between 86th Street and Benson Avenue, reported the theft to police at 8 am, and said his bank froze both accounts.
