A criminal socked a woman in the face and stole her earrings on Gerritsen Avenue on Oct. 21, police said.

The 42-year-old woman told police the crook jumped out of a gray sports utility vehicle near Avenue W at 8 pm and said, “Give me your earrings.” But the woman refused and the malefactor punched her in the right eye with his fist, police said.

The lout fled in his car down Gerritsen Avenue with her earrings, police said.
