Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Bad delivery

A pack of three perps beat up a food deliveryman before stealing $400, his car keys, and cellphone on Shore Parkway on Jan. 4, police said.

The man told police he was making a food delivery between 19th and 20th avenues at around 8:20 pm when the trio threw him to the ground and punched him, causing pain and swelling to his forehead. They then grabbed the aforementioned items before they fled on foot in an unknown direction.

All for $4 dollars

A good-for-nothing stole $4 from a man after he flashed a firearm on 77th Street on Jan. 4.

The lowlife initially approached the man at New Utrecht Avenue at around 11:55 pm and asked the man if he had any change for $5 before he flashed the gun and demanded the man empty his pockets, according to officials.

He fled on foot — with the $4 in hand — down New Utrecht Avenue, towards 78th Street, and then in an unknown direction, police said.

Backpack, cash gone

A thief with a gun stole $100 and a man’s backpack after he approached him on New Utrecht Avenue on Jan. 4 and demanded his money.

The crook approached the man at 17th Avenue around 11:55 pm, and stole his backpack and the money and fled in an unknown direction.

Coming and going

A crook broke into a woman’s Benson Avenue apartment bedroom window on Jan. 6, according to police.

The criminal entered the apartment at Bay 28th Street through the bedroom window at around 7 pm, and fled the same way, police said. Investigators were unsure what, if anything, he stole, according to a report.
