Armed robbery

A gunman mugged a woman at the corner of Seventh Avenue and 82nd Street on Nov. 26.

The 32-year-old victim told cops that she was turning the corner at around 3 am when the perp approached her, flashed a black handgun and said, “Give me your money.”

He then grabbed her purse, which contained her wallet and Blackberry, and fled towards 83rd Street.

Key to the crime

A thief stole $100 and a MacBook from a Fifth Avenue apartment on Nov. 22.

The victim told cops that he was gone from his home, which is between 67th and Senator streets, from 7:30 am to 9 pm. When he returned, he saw that his stuff was gone.

The victim said that his neighbor is the only person with a spare key to his place, but he hasn’t been able to get in touch with the neighbor since the heist.

Overnight job

A bandit broke into a Fifth Avenue store overnight on Nov. 21 to steal nearly $700.

Cops say that the burglar forced his way in through the basement of the gift shop, which is between 85th and 86th streets, after 9:30 pm.

Once inside the store, the perp broke into the ATM and the register to nab the dough.

Crack a bottle

Some jerk hit a 17-year-old kid with a bottle at the corner of 86th Street and Third Avenue on Nov. 24.

The teen victim told cops that he was on the corner at around 8:30 am when an unknown dude approached him. The perp began to insult him and then smacked him on the dome with a bottle before running off.

The victim was treated at Lutheran Medical Center.
