68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights


Cops cuffed a guy who they say beat a man with a piece of wood at Shore Road on April 13.

The victim was in his apartment building between 92nd and Oliver streets at 9 am when he was suddenly attacked with the timber, police said. The victim knew his attacker and police managed to arrest the suspect later that day, officials said.


Two punks robbed a delivery man on Colonial Road and 79th Street on April 12.

The man told police he had just completed a delivery at 8 pm when he was grabbed from behind and $250 was ripped from inside his pocket, according to a police report.

The thieves fled on foot without a trace, police said.

Home invader

A raider ransacked a woman’s 63rd Street apartment on April 9.

The woman told police that she left her apartment between 10th and 11th avenues for work that morning but when she returned at 2 pm, her bedroom closet was tossed and $540 was missing, according to a police report.

Other property worth $240 was also swiped from her home, said police.
