Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Purse snatcher

A miscreant grabbed a woman’s purse on 87th Street on Jan. 22, said police.

The woman told authorities she was walking home between Third and Fourth avenues at 8 pm when the cad grabbed her purse from behind, pulling so hard that he bruised her arm.

A struggle ensued but the baddie made off with the pocketbook, with cash and credit cards inside, toward Third Avenue, said officials.

Big score

A bandit broke into a woman’s car and made off with cash, credit cards, and electronics on 76th Street on Jan. 22, authorities said.

The woman said she parked her car between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard and upon returning at 9:30 pm discovered that someone broke into her blue sedan and made off with her belongings, according to a police report.

A laptop, iPad, cellphone, and more than $1,000 were taken, along with the woman’s keys and credit cards, said police.

You’re it

A brute walked up to a man on Fourth Avenue, smacked him, and stole the stunned man’s cellphone on Jan. 25, officials said.

The man told police that he was between 72nd and 73rd streets at 4:25 am when a man approached him and smacked him so hard he fell to the ground. The lout then grabbed the man’s cellphone and said, “Got you,” before running toward 74th Street, police said.

Crafty theif

A thief busted into a woman’s Ridge Boulevard apartment on Jan. 24 and stole jewelry, said police.

The woman told police she entered her abode at 80th Street at 7:30 am and discovered her jewelry laid out on her bed —but a pair of earrings and a necklace missing. The rear window lock was damaged and the crook had placed a book in front of a security camera in the woman’s apartment so his actions weren’t recorded, authorities said.

Jewel heist

A snake stole expensive designer jewelry from a woman’s apartment on Ridge Boulevard on Jan. 23, said police.

The woman told authorities that she was away on vacation and when she returned to her home between Shore Road and Marine Avenue at 4:30 am, she found the top deadbolt of her door unlocked. When she walked inside she discovered that two Tiffany’s rings, a Movado watch, and a Bulari ring, according to a police report.
