62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Bruised apple

A bully beat up a 15-year-old boy for his iPhone on 66th Street on Dec 4, police report.

The victim said he was near Bay Parkway on his way home from school at 1:30 pm when the goon came up to him and punched him in the gut, then took the device.

Lewd behavior

A weirdo exposed himself to a woman riding a Manhattan-bound N train before robbing her on Dec. 4, police say.

The victim said she was near the W. Seventh Street stop heading into Manhattan at 3:55 pm when the sex-crazed fiend approached her and bared his private parts, then began masturbating in front of her.

When the train pulled into the stop at the corner of Avenue U, the perp grabbed her phone and fled.

Mind games

A scam artist posing as a psychic conned a woman into turning over tens of thousands of dollars in valuables on Benson Avenue on Dec. 6, cops report.

The victim told police she was near Bay Parkway at noon when the phony fortune teller approached her with two accomplices and instructed her to bring out all of her most precious possessions from her home in a plastic bag for a mentalist session.

The woman complied, and while the supposed sorceress distracted her, the pair of lackeys switched the lady’s belongings for a sack of rice.

Purse snatcher

A crook yanked a woman’s pocketbook away on 16th Avenue on Dec. 4, according to police.

The victim reported that she was between 86th and 87th streets at 6:30 pm when the villain ran up behind her and grabbed her bag off of her shoulder, then escaped toward 86th Street.

Under pressure

A scoundrel stole a compressor from a construction site on 64th Street on Dec. 6, cops say.

The victim said he and his co-workers were keeping the piece of equipment chained to a light pole, and left their job site near New Utrecht Avenue at 6 pm. They came back the next morning to find the chain chopped and the machine missing.
