The suspect hit the woman with the footwear near Prince Street at 10:30 am, according to a report.

Fruit frenzy

Police are searching for a thief who stole a man’s Citi Bike while he was buying fruit on Lafayette Avenue on Aug. 9.

The victim parked his two-wheeler by South Elliot Place at 3:15 pm and went to purchase the goods when the sneak took the pricey ride, authorities said.

Handicap heist

Officers arrested a man who snatched a man’s wallet from his hand as he sat in a wheelchair on Prince Street on Aug. 17.

The 59-year-old victim told police he was in the wheelchair near Tillary Street at 9:42 am when the suspect asked him for money. The perp then snatched the wallet and fled down Johnson Street, according to a report.

Subway sneak

A weasel lifted a woman’s wallet from her bag while she was asleep on a Manhattan-bound Q train on Aug. 17.

The woman told cops she got on the train at Stillwell Avenue station at 6:30 pm and rode to Atlantic Avenue, falling asleep in between. She exited the station and upon arriving home found that her wallet, which had been at the bottom of her bag, was missing, authorities said.

Diamond thief

Some snake stole a woman’s engagement ring and diamond earrings from the jewelry box inside her Classon Avenue apartment between Aug. 17 and Aug. 19, investigators said.

The owner told cops she took off her diamond ring on Aug. 17 at 5 pm and put it in the box, together with the earrings. She said she had closets installed the next day, but when she went to go put on the ring and earrings after the workers left, discovered they were missing. The workers were the only people who had been in her home, she told authorities.
