Bad luck

Some punk stole a guy’s dollar and attacked him inside a Waverly Avenue bodega on Oct. 1.

The victim entered the store near Lafayette Avenue at 3:20 pm with the dollar in his hand to buy a lottery ticket, he told police. But the thief snatched it from him then proceeded to punch him in the face several times, followed by repeatedly kicking and stomping his head, according to a report.

Car invasion

A pirate broke into a car parked on North Portland Avenue and stole nearly $1,700 of its owner’s belongings on Sept. 29.

The man left his vehicle parked by Myrtle Avenue at 11:30 am and returned at 4 pm to find his window shattered and his iPad, Invicta watch, Rayban sunglasses, cash, and gold iPad had been taken, authorities said.

Wheeling away

A baddie rode away with a man’s pricey bicycle after he locked it on Waverly Avenue on Sept. 29.

The victim secured his Roubaix SL4 Elite 1052C white frame two-wheeler between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue at noon and returned at 4:30 to discover it had been stolen, cops said.

A fool for tools

Cops cuffed a guy who allegedly tried to steal $2,323 of property from an Irving Place construction site on Sept. 28.

The suspect was spotted leaving the lot by Putnam Avenue at 1:38 pm with a first aid kit, chop saw metal porter cable, a Skilsaw saw, shotgun nailer, and extension cord, but cops nabbed him, according to a report.
