Dating this dad can be hazardous to your health.

That’s the message one daughter is sending to her father’s potential suitors, thanks to an attack on a 48-year-old woman who was dating her dad, cops said.

The family turmoil turned into violence on June 15 when shortly before midnight, the 28-year-old daughter confronted her dad’s girfriend inside his Fifth Avenue apartment. After a brief argument, the daughter began punching the other woman in the head, before finally whacking her in the noggin with an ashtray, cops said.

The daughter took off, while the dad-dater was picked up by ambulance at the residence, which is near 67th Street, and taken to a local hospital where she received three stitches.

You did what?

A 42-year-old man left his car running in front of a Third Avenue store and ran inside for a few minutes, only to return to discover that someone had stolen his car while he was inside shopping at 1:50 pm June 16.

Beautiful crime

A 45-year-old woman who left her credit card at a local office supply store on Fifth Avenue on June 1 told cops that someone later used it to go on a $532 shopping spree.

Cash caper

A prowler made off with a computer in a nighttime break-in on Fifth Avenue on June 13.

The 26-year-old resident of the apartment, which is near 84th Street, had left for work at 8:30 pm only to return four hours later to discover that the $500 computer was gone.

One headlight

The headlights were stolen off a 2001 Acura that had been parked on 88th Street near Narrows Avenue at 8 pm on June 12.

Train trouble

A 44-year-old woman was robbed by an ice-pick-wielding thug on a Coney Island-bound N train on June 17.

The victim boarded the crowded train at Atlantic Avenue and saw the thug sleeping. At around 7:45 am, the train approached New Utrecht Avenue and the last rider left the train, leaving the woman alone with the punk.

As soon as the rider got off, the man pulled out the ice pick and said, “Give me the jewelry and the money or I will kill you.” The woman complied and the thug swiped more than $400, including the jewelry.

The criminal got off at the next stop, 18th Avenue, and fled.

Auto swipe

A 65th Street resident’s car was broken into and his property stolen overnight on June 15.

The 60-year-old returned to his 1995 Pontiac GrandAm, which was parked in front of his 65th Street home, the following morning and found the front passenger window shattered and electronics stolen, police said.

A neighbor told the 62nd precinct that he heard the perp break into the car at around 4:15 am and saw him running towards near 21st Avenue with the goods.

In the back

A man returned to his Cameron Court home on June 14 to find thousands in cash and jewelry stolen.

The victim noticed a back window had been broken into when he arrived at the home, which is near 67th Street, at around 3 pm.

Closer inspection revealed that $8,000 in goods were missing, police said.

Punk nabbed

A trio of muggers swiped the purse of a woman walking along Bay Ridge Parkway on June 13 — but one of the thugs was later caught, cops said.

The 56-year-old’s pocketbook was swiped at around 7 pm as she neared the corner of 20th Avenue. The trio fled with her black bag, which contained $200, plus credit, debit and Medicare cards.

Neighbor watch

A man returned to his 84th Street apartment to find thugs had broken in and swiped some electronic equipment on June 12.

The 28-year-old discovered the damage at around 9:30 pm, within his apartment, which is near 19th Avenue. The thief or thieves had also swiped $180, police said.
