Gunpoint rob!

A man robbed an unsuspecting woman at gunpoint inside her 10th Avenue home on July 6.

    The 25-year-old woman was asleep in her bedroom at around 3:30 am when the suspect climbed through an open window on the side of the house, which is between 63rd and 64th streets, cops said.

    When the man entered the bedroom, he woke up the victim and pointed a gun at her, demanding money and warning her not to scream. He then grabbed a pillow case and stuffed it with more than $3,000 worth of electronics and jewelry before running out the front door.

Teen wasteland

Two men cornered and assaulted a teenager on 65th Street at 2 pm on June 28.

The 15-year-old victim told cops he was approaching the corner of Third Avenue at 2 pm when two men approached from behind and snatched his phone. When the victim turned around and grabbed the phone back, the two men got violent, punching the boy in his head.

The victim put his phone in his pocket and ran down the street, leaving the thugs behind.

Midday burg

A thief busted into a 68th Street home during the day on July 2 and got away with baubles.

The 32-year-old owner of the house, which is between Fourth and Fifth avenues, told cops he left for work at around 1 pm. When he returned just before midnight, his bedroom window was open and more then $6,000 in jewelry and electronics were gone.

Fast feud

A verbal dispute turned violent inside a 14th Avenue fast food restaurant on July 2.

    The 36-year-old victim said he was inside of building, which is between 65th and 66th streets, at around 1:30 pm when he began arguing with another man. As the dispute escalated, the suspect picked up a chair and swung it at the victim, hitting him in the head and knocking him unconscious. The suspect then fled, but not before video cameras inside the restaurant captured the whole scene.
