Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Beer house break-in

A burglar broke into a Fifth Avenue pub on Nov. 2 but didn’t get away with anything.

Security cameras caught the would-be thief breaking down a rear door at the bar near the corner of Senator Street around 4:30 am, not long after last call. Footage shows him walking around the bar with his hands full of tools before leaving empty-handed, according to police.

Armed robbery

Two brutes beat and robbed a guy on 12th Avenue on Nov. 1 — after he refused to give up his cash, police said.

The victim told police he was near the corner of 71st Street just after 11 pm when the duo approached, brandishing heat and demanding money.

The man said no way, so the two knocked him to the ground and punched and kicked him before grabbing his wallet and cellphone and running away, according to a police report.

Gone in a flash

A swift swiper stole a woman’s cellphone right out of her hands on 10th Avenue on Nov. 4.

The woman said she was near the corner of 63rd Street around 3:40 pm when the thief ran up to her from behind. He grabbed her cellphone and hightailed it out of sight, according to police.
