Picking on the elderly

A good-for-nothing stole an old man’s wallet out of his hands on Brighton Beach Avenue on April 23.

The 81-year-old man said he was near Brighton First Street at 1:20 pm when the thief took his wallet. It contained cash, MetroCards, and his identification. The thief then fled towards the Boardwalk, cops said.

Wallet woes

The woman said she left her wallet in the room at the residence between Sheepshead Bay Road and Surf Avenue at 5:50 am. When she returned later, the bill fold was gone, according to authorities.

Police said they found the wallet and arrested a man in relation to the incident.
