Yet another Chinese-food deliveryman was robbed, this time at knifepoint in a Bay 17th Street building on Jan. 9.

The 34-year-old victim was in the building, which is near Benson Avenue, at around 10:30 pm when the thug came from behind, placed a knife against the victim’s side, and reached around and swiped $200 from his front pants pocket, police said.

The perp left the Chinese food, but took the cash, and fled the building.

Home burg

A thief entered a 24th Avenue apartment and took $5,000 while the tenant was out on Jan. 12.

The 42-year-old man told police that he left his home, which is near Bath Avenue, at around 1 pm. When he returned two hours later, he noticed that the rear door had been broken open and that the cash was missing.

B1 bus rob

A pickpocket ripped off a woman as she was riding an 86th Street-bound B1 bus on Jan. 11.

The 41-year-old got off the bus at around 3:30 pm as it approached 25th Avenue and realized that her wallet, which contained credit and debit cards, was missing.

Before the woman cancelled her cards, the thug had already purchased multiple Metrocards, cops said.

Home invasion

A sleeping woman got the wake-up call of her nightmares when a burglar entered her 78th Street apartment and lifted cash and electronics on Jan. 10.

The 28-year-old was sleeping in the home, which is near 21st Avenue, at around 4:25 am when the thug came through an open kitchen window. He crept his way to the bedroom, startling the victim, who remained in the bed motionless while the perp swiped $159 and electronics, police said.

The thug left the apartment, taking the stolen goods, and fled through the same window.


Thugs kicked, punched and robbed a man on Avenue S for a mere $9, at 6:30 pm on Jan. 11.

The gang swiped the chump change from their 19-year-old victim’s front pocket near the corner of West 12th Street.

Duo nabbed

Two thugs beat and robbed a 55-year-old man at 1:05 am on West Seventh Street near Kings Highway — but the man later helped cops ID the terror tag team on Jan 7.

The victim, thrown into a car and punched him in the face, surrendered his cellphone and credit cards, police said.

Later, police caught the two, thanks to a positive ID from the victim. — Michael Giardina
