68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Cinematic chase

Four brutes threatened a woman sitting in her car on 10th Avenue on May 28 — and when she drove off, the ruffians sped after her and shot at the car.

The victim told police she was in her vehicle near 63rd Street at 10 pm when she was approached by two men and two women. The nogoodniks struck up a conversation with the woman, which soon turned into an argument. Things turned violent when one of the goons pulled out a knife and threatened the victim, said police.

The woman instinctively grabbed the blade, slicing her hand open, and the cad punched her in the face, officials said. She floored it and sped down 63rd Street toward Ninth Avenue, as the baddies hopped in their gold Ford Sedan and drove after her, said authorities. After driving around the block, the woman jumped out of her car and ran into an apartment building on 10th Avenue between 63rd and 64th streets. But the man who threatened her with the blade caught up to her and dragged her out onto the street, throwing her back into her car, according to a police report.

A witness told police he watched the man pull out a hand gun and fired a round into the woman’s car.

Police recovered a shell casing on the scene.

Knife to meet you

Two toughs robbed a man on Colonial Road on May 31.

The victim told police that he was near 83rd Street at 3 pm when he approached by two baddies. One of the goons pulled out a blade and demanded the victim hand over his phone, said police.

The other man stood as lookout while the victim gave the goons his iPhone 7, authorities said.


Three goons surrounded a man and demanded jewelry on the corner of 75th Street and 10th Avenue on May 30.

The victim told police that he just got off the B4 bus at 2:30 pm when three men in hoodies surrounded him. One brandished a knife and said, “We can do this the easy way or the hard way,” according to a police report.

The thieves ripped off the man’s gold chain and fled toward Fort Hamilton Parkway, said police.
