Pregnant woman choked

A bruiser choked a pregnant woman and threatened her with a nail gun on 73rd Street on Jan. 21, police said.

The woman told authorities that she was trying to leave the apartment building between 17th and 18th avenues at 1:30 am when the man grabbed her by the neck, choked her, and punched her in the face. The man proceeded to threaten the woman with a nail gun before fleeing on foot.

Police on the scene canvassed the area, but couldn’t find the cad. The woman told police she is two months pregnant and was examined by emergency responders, authorities said.

Strip and run

Goons stripped a man’s car of its rims and tires on Bay 16th Street on Jan. 21, officials said.

The man told police he parked his car near Shore Boulevard at noon that day, and when he returned at 11:30 am the next day he discovered all four rims and tires were gone.

Trio of muggers

Police arrested a woman and two men for mugging two guys on Bay Parkway on Jan. 20, said police.

The trio cornered the victims near Shore Parkway at 9 pm and punched them multiple times before forcefully removing jewelry and clothing. Police on the scene stopped the suspects as they were fleeing and found them in possession of the stolen property, officials said.

Without a trace

A thief swiped cash from a man’s 18th Avenue apartment on Jan. 17, said police.

The man told police that the baddie managed to sneak into his locked apartment near between 79th and 80th streets while he was at work. The crook swiped $500 from a drawer in the man’s living room, according to a police report. There was no sign of forced entry, authorities said.
