Back to the doctor

A ne’er-do-well pushed a woman on Kings Highway on Sept. 21 and then snatched her bag, police said.

The woman left her doctor’s office and was walking home near Coney Island Avenue at 8:53 am when the weasel came up to her from behind and pushed her, causing her to drop her pocketbook with $200 in it, her New York State identification card, a black pair of sunglasses, a MetroCard, and Medicaid insurance card, according to authorities.

The jerk picked the bag up and took off, officials said. The woman told police the fall caused minor pain to her right shoulder.

Scared students

A pair of scoundrels attacked and robbed two students as they were on their way home from school on Avenue R on Sept. 23, police said.

The students told police they were near E. 16th Street around 12:30 pm when the two punks came up to them from behind and started threatening them. One of the jerks tried to grab the 14-year-old victim’s Louis Vuitton Bag and iPhone 6S.

The second malefactor then punched the other victim in the face and swiped an iPhone 4S, police said.

The villains fled down Avenue R, according to authorities.
