78th Precinct

Park Slope

Have a seat

Cops arrested a 24-year-old woman for hurling a seat at a man inside a Prospect Park playground off Empire Boulevard on Aug. 26.

The victim told police that he was near Flatbush Avenue at 6:55 am when the woman handed flung the chair in his direction. Fortunately, the suspect’s aim was off, and the victim escaped without a mark, according to police.

Panties pilfered

A 6-foot-2 male lingerie lover stole $1,300 worth of panties from a Flatbush Avenue store on Aug. 24.

A witness told police he was inside the store between Atlantic Avenue and Hanson Place at 3:06 pm, when he spotted the crook snagging no-less-than 100 pairs of women’s underwear.

Cradle robber

Cops are on the hunt for a 25-year-old man who they say beat a woman insider her Wyckoff Street apartment on Aug. 24 — while she cradled her 6-month-old child in her arms.

The victim told police she was insider her home between Nevins Street and Third Avenue at 3 pm when the suspect punched in her the face numerous times. The suspect grabbed the victim’s cellphone, which he used to bludgeon her with repeatedly, before fleeing with it, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief with an eye for fine bikes made his way into a Union Street apartment building sometime between July 30 and Aug. 28, taking a man’s two-wheeler.

The victim told police that he left his pedal-powered vehicle in a bike locker inside the apartment between Eighth Avenue and Plaza Street West at 10 am in July, but it wasn’t until roughly a month later that he went to check on it, and discovered that his Jamis-Road Endura Elite brand bike was nowhere to be seen.

Dirt bag, dirt bike

A crooked biker made off with a man’s Suzuki parked on Sixth Street on Aug. 27.

The victim told police he left his dirt bike between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 11:30 am, and returned about five hours later to find an empty spot where his white DRZ400 had been.

Caddy crook

A car thief made drove off with a woman’s 2011 Cadillac she parked on 14th Street on Aug. 25.

The victim told police she left her 2011 Cady SRX between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at 7 pm, and returned early the next morning to find her luxury ride had a new driver.

Down and out

A thief ransacked a man’s bag at a Sixth Street hospital on Aug. 25, taking more than $2,000 worth of loot as the victim lay unconscious on a hospital bed.

The victim told police he passed out inside the emergency room between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 5:15 pm, and awoke a few hours later to discover his bag was missing, along with cash, jewelry, electronics, and other miscellaneous items, inside it, cops said.

Role of a lifetime

A Sterling Place actor was conned into spending $2,500 for a bogus magazine shoot on Aug. 13, cops said.

The victim, who lives between Flatbush and Vanderbilt avenues, told police that he was contacted via e-mail by a man with an offer from Life and Style Magazine at 6:30 pm. After agreeing to the man’s proposition, the victim was sent a certified check for $2,850, and was told to purchase wardrobe items for the shoot, prompting the victim to withdraw $2,500 from his account and start spending, cops said.

It wasn’t until later that the victim was informed by his bank that the certified check he received was bogus, and that his account was $2,500 in the red, according to police.

Coffee and a crook

A slick sleaze stole a man’s wallet off the table of a Fourth Avenue cafe on Aug. 25.

The victim told police that he was enjoying a cup of joe between between Carroll and President streets at 12:30 pm when another gentleman leaned over and began inquiring about his computer.

The two chatted for about a half hour, but it wasn’t until the other man left that the victim realized his wallet, which had been on the table beside his computer and coffee, was nowhere to be seen, cops said.
