Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Justice hurts

A ruffian whacked a woman in the face with a book of legal documents on Bay 10th Street on April 28.

The baddie approached the 52-year-old woman between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at 9 pm and struck her on the left side of the face with the heavy paperwork, officials said.

The blow caused a bruise, according to a police report.

Bodega holdup

Two goons simulated a handgun and robbed a bodega on 17th Avenue on May 1.

The clerk told police the two men entered the store between 66th and 67th streets at 3 pm and held up a plastic bag that looked like it contained a pistol. The ruffians shoved the cashier to the floor and rummaged through his pockets, according to a police report.

The baddies fled in a dark green sedan toward 66th Street, said officials.

Lotto lover

A gambler raided a New Utrecht Avenue bodega of scratch-off Lotto tickets on April 25.

The baddie launched a red brick through the glass storefront between 71st and 72nd at 5 am, according to a police report.

He then forced his way into the shop and ran off with armfuls of tickets, said police.

Bling bandit

Thieves stole $8,000 worth of jewelry from an 82nd Street home on April 30.

The victim told police she left her house between 15th and 16th avenues at 7 pm. But when she returned at midnight, she discovered that someone had busted into her home, possibly gaining entry from an upstairs bathroom window, said police.

The thieves grabbed the pricey bling before fleeing the scene, according to a police report.
