68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Watch out

A burglar ransacked a 65th Street apartment on Feb. 21 and stole a gold necklace, three chains, two bracelets, a watch, a backpack, and a safe.

The man told police he left his home near 10th Avenue at about 8 pm and found both bedrooms ransacked when he returned. The intruder entered through a rear bedroom window that was left open, cops noted.

Better check again

A thief stole a check from a Bay Ridge Avenue mailbox on Feb. 23.

The woman who wrote the $924 insurance check told police she dropped it in a Third Avenue mailbox shortly before 11:45 am and that a crook soon after altered and cashed it for $1,200.

Positive ID

Police arrested a man who they say shoved a woman to the ground on Ovington Avenue on Feb. 23, causing minor injuries, before stealing her purse and fleeing on foot.

The suspect caused the woman minor injuries to her head and lip when he pushed her to the ground between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 4:15 am, according to the police report. He then grabbed her bag and fled on Ovington Avenue towards Sixth Avenue, officials said.

The victim later identified him when police showed her his identification card, which they recovered at the scene, according to the report.

Trying door No. 2

Cops cuffed a man for breaking into a 65th Street home on Feb. 23.

The man pounded on the basement door at the home near 10th Avenue just before 4 am, and when the woman inside checked her cameras, she saw him in the vestibule trying to open the front door while looking around, according to the report. He then went down to the basement, where he got in, police said.
