62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Date night gone wrong

Police arrested three men who they say mugged a couple on 84th Street on Jan. 20, officials said.

The trio of men cornered the pair between 24th and 25th avenues at midnight and demanded their cash and cellphones, according to a police report.

One of men punched one of the victims in the face before they ran off with the goods, authorities said.

Chilling attack

Two goons threatened a pair of men with an ice pick on 79th Street on Jan. 20, said police.

One of the victims told police that he was sitting in his car between 20th and 21st avenues with his friend at 2:35 pm when the pair of toughs approached them with an ice pick and said, “Give me all your money,” according to a police report.

But one of the men got out of the car and kicked the ice pick-wielding baddie, and the two miscreants fled empty-handed toward Bay Parkway, authorities said.

Home invader

A bandit ransacked a man’s apartment on 83rd Street on Jan. 19, official said.

The man told police he was at work and when he returned to his apartment between 20th and 21st avenues at 7 am he discovered that his bedroom had been tossed and cash, credit cards, and jewelry were missing.

There was no sign of forced entry, authorities said.

Where is my car?

A thief rode off with a woman’s car parked on W. Ninth Street sometime between Jan. 22 and 23, said police.

The woman told police that she parked her blue Infiniti G20 between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 2 pm on Sunday, and when she returned at 5 pm the next day, her car was gone, police said.
