Chain snatcher

Some snake choked and robbed a guy riding the F train near the Avenue P stop on July 3, cops say.

The victim told cops the lout approached him while the train was at the stop near McDonald Avenue around 1:35 pm and asked if he was Turkish. When he said no, the brute choked him, grabbed his chain and bracelet, and fled, police reported.

Through the glass door

A thief robbed a Gravesend Neck Road department store sometime overnight on July 5, cops said.

The sneak smashed the glass door of the store near E. 13th Street, at some point between 9 pm and 9 am the next day, before swiping an iPhone and several iPads, according to the report.

Like a good neighbor

Cops cuffed a guy who they say assaulted his neighbor after attempting to rob her apartment on E. 12th Street on July 6.

The victim told cops she saw the suspect leaving her apartment near Avenue W around noon with her jewelry box after she had briefly gone outside. The suspect put the box down when the victim confronted him, then punched her in the face, according to the report.

The suspect was arrested at the 61st Precinct station house, and charged with robbery, felony assault, kidnapping, and criminal trespassing.
