A double-parked car containing five driver’s licenses and a college identity card attracted the attention of a fast-fingered thief on Nov. 27, police said.

The white Mitsubishi was illegally parked on Carroll Street near Van Brunt Street, outside its owner’s business, at around 10:30 am. The bandit noticed an unlocked door and went inside, stealing the five licenses, the ID card, a $50 parking meter card and a YMCA card before 25-year-old owner returned, police said.

The victim told police that he had only been gone from his car “ a few minutes.” He didn’t explain why he had five driver’s licenses on him.

Gun, no keys

Two gun-brandishing hoods assaulted a 32-year-old man on the corner of Van Dyke and Conover Street on Nov. 25, police said.

The muggers put a silver handgun to the man’s neck at around 7:25 pm and threatened to pull the trigger if he bolted, police said. One goon took $10 from the man’s left pocket while the other grabbed keys and a cellphone out of his right pocket. The attackers gave their mark his keys back before running away.
