A woman got burned twice in one day — first by the tanning salon she was patronizing and then by the thug who stole her purse while she was taking in the artificial daylight at the 86th Street salon on Nov. 3.

The 29-year-old was in the tanning booth, which is near 19th Avenue, at around 1 pm. She reclined on the UV-illuminated bed and left her purse on the floor. The perp managed to sneak in, grab the bag, and depart without the victim noticing.

The thug swiped $120, along with her credit and debit cards.

Handy men

Two perps were arrested for trying to steal construction equipment from an Avenue P worksite on Oct. 31 after a witness’s tip alerted cops.

At around 1 am, the tag team was first spotted lugging around the equipment, a hammer drill, and black tool box, by a man walking on Avenue O and West Third Street. The perps dropped the tools and fled, but were later caught by police on West Eight Street.

B82 bump

A woman was a victim of the old bump-and-run after a perp took her purse while she rode a B82 bus on Kings Highway on Oct. 25.

The 56-year-old realized her purse was gone once she got off at West Sixth Street at 3:10 pm. The perp had taken her pocketbook, which had $360, and fled before she realized it was gone, police said.

Transit troubles

Two late-night subway riders had cash and credit cards stolen while riding the N and D lines last week.

The first incident was on Oct. 29, when the victim had his wallet literally cut out of his pants pocket while he slept on the Coney Island-bound N train at around 2 am. He finally woke up at the Avenue U stop, police said.

The next day, a man was robbed and beaten by a trio of perps on a Coney Island-bound D train.

At around 3 am, the thugs approached the man and asked him for money. When he refused, two of them punched him in the face, while the other rifled through his pockets, taking $200.

The fled, leaving the man broke, his lip bleeding and his eye swollen, police said.

Pkwy burg

A woman returned to her Bay Ridge Parkway apartment to find a back window open and her cash and jewelry stolen on Nov. 3.

The 29-year-old returned to the apartment, which is near 19th Avenue, at around 7 pm. The thieves had managed to break through a back window and swipe $1,000, along with jewelry, from her dresser, police said.

Michael you don't get burned in a tanning bed unless your an idiot in an unprofessional salon!
Just trying to shed some light on your ignorance.
