Chaos on Surf Avenue

A gunman shot a man on Surf Avenue on July 5, cops say.

The report states the victim was driving outside a housing development near W. 31st Street around 10 pm while the shooter drove down a pathway behind the houses. The perp shot the victim in the chest and fled eastbound on Surf Avenue, police reported.

The victim was taken to Lutheran Hospital, the report said. Cops said they found 9 millimeter shells on the scene.

Sleeping on the job

A thief robbed a guy on the beach near Avenue C on July 8, cops said.

The victim told cops he left his bag alone on the beach and found it missing when he returned around 4 pm. He later saw the thief unconscious on the Riegelmann Boardwalk with his loot, according to the report.

Two one one

Two brutes assaulted and robbed a guy on June 8 on Stillwell Avenue, cops said.

The victim told cops he was approached by the dastardly duo near Surf Avenue around 2 am, and after one of them flashed a black gun, they told him to hand over his chains.

One of the louts then punched the victim in the face, and removed his pricey jewelry, according to the report.

Phone thief

Some sneak stole a woman’s cellphone off the beach near Stillwell Avenue on June 30, cops said.

The victim told cops she left her phone on blanket in the sand, only to find it missing when she returned. The snake then used the phone to call the victim’s mother and tell her she could get the phone back for $100, the report says.
