Swam then stole

Police arrested a pair of women who they say stole designer accessories, electronics, and cash from a locker at a Seventh Avenue pool on July 16.

The theft occurred at the pool inside Sunset Park on 44th Street at some point between 12:45 pm and 2:50 pm, according to the report. The victims told police they used an application on a phone to discover their stolen property on 51st Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues, and police arrested the women the same day.

Watch for the wallet snatcher

A sneak stole a woman’s wallet from her purse as she was entering the 36th Street subway station on July 16.

The theft occurred at the station at Fourth Avenue just before 1:30 pm, and the woman told police that the perp fled to a nearby bowling alley. The wallet contained $70, her MetroCard, and credit cards.

Between a rock and a hard window

A punk damaged the window on a 22nd Street home on July 16.

The incident occurred around 10:30 pm at the home between Sixth and Seventh avenues, police reported. The homeowner told police he thinks the perp threw a rock through the window, officers said.

Found an opening

Police arrested a man who allegedly broke into a 2018 Honda Sedan on Third Avenue on July 17.

The man was testing the door handles of cars parked at 31st Street around 2:15 am, and then broke into one car and rummaged through the glove compartment, according to a witness cited in the report. Police arrested the man the same day.

Home invasion

A lowlife stole $350 plus various credit, debit, and identification cards from a 42nd Street home on July 21.

The theft occurred at the home between Second and Third avenues at some point between 6:30 am and 3 pm, according to the report.

Cashed out

A sneak stole more than $500 from an Eighth Avenue man’s bank account at a cash machine on July 21.

The homeowner, who lives between 40th and 41st streets, reported the theft to police on July 23, and told them he realized it at about 6:30 pm two days earlier.

Biked into the night

A thief stole a pair of Yamaha motorbikes from 49th Street sometime overnight on July 21.

The theft occurred between Seventh and Eighth avenues at some point between 11:30 pm on July 21 and 2:30 am the next day, according to the report.

Robbed after a train ride

A baddie punched a man, threw him to the ground, and stole his cellphone on Third Avenue on July 22.

The man was near 58th Street between 4:50 and 5:15 am, walking home from the train station, when the perp approached him on a red bicycle and demanded he hand over his phone. But when the victim refused, the assault began, and the crook fled on his bike after making the steal, police said.
