62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Jacket jackers

Two ruffians choked out a 30-year-old man on New Utrecht Avenue on March 5 and stole his jacket and cellphone, cops said.

The pair fled on foot down 62nd Street, authorities said.

Prescription for abuse

A lowlife beat his ex-girlfriend and stole her meds in her Avenue O apartment on March 6, police said.

The pair was embroiled in an argument at the woman’s pad between Dahill Road and McDonald Avenue when the goon punched his former lover in the face and dragged her down some stairs by her hair, cops said. He took her purse and removed $440 worth of pharmaceuticals, reports state.

Friendship fizzled

Two friends’ relationship went up in smoke when one threw a hookah at the other in a W. Ninth Street apartment on March 10, according to cops.

Two women got into an argument at the pad and one smashed a hookah on the victim, cutting her arm, police reported. The aggressor then trashed her former friend’s stereo, police said.

All told, the suspect destroyed more than $250 of her friend’s property, reports state.

Did you try knocking?

A Bensonhurst man lost $4,800 in electronics after someone smashed their way into his home on March 5, cops said.

First, the burglar flattened the home’s front door, then he or she went for the prize behind Door No. 2, bashing in a bedroom door to reach the man’s cache of high-tech gear, according to reports.
