Hungry for stolen food

Two lowlifes punched a Chinese food deliveryman on Gravesend Neck Road on April 4 and stole his cash and food.

The victim said he was delivering an order to a house near E. Fourth Street at 10:15 pm when two men got out of a dark Chevy suburban sport utility vehicle and approached him.

One man held the victim down while the other struck him in the face, police reported. They took his wallet, which had $450 inside, and the food, before driving off towards E. Fifth Street, according to the report.

Phone collection

A miscreant stuck up a store on Coney Island Avenue on April 6 — stealing hundreds in cash as well as several cellphones.

Workers at the store near Avenue X told police that a man walked in at 4:27 pm and pointed a black gun at them, saying “you know what this is.” He then demanded they put phones and cash from the register in his bag, cops said.

He took more than $600, as well as an iPhone 7, an iPhone 7-Plus, an iPhone 8, and an iPhone 8-Plus before fleeing towards Desmond Court, officers reported.

Police said they did not find the man after searching nearby, but that there is camera footage of the incident available.


A good-for-nothing broke into a house on Avenue V on April 7.

The victim said he left his apartment near E. 17th Street at 4:30 am, and when he returned at 4:30 pm, found that someone had broken his door lock. The thief stole cash, a Samsung Galaxy Note 5S, and a gold chain.
