Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
A drug dealer mugged a man at gunpoint as he was trying to buy pot from him on 70th Street on Feb. 19, said police.
The victim told police he was trying to buy marijuana from an acquaintance when he came into his apartment between Narrows Avenue and Colonial Road at 2 pm brandishing a silver handgun. The tough pointed the gun at the man and stated, “Give me everything you have.” He emptied the man’s laundry basket and demanded he fill it with his belongings, authorities said.
The goon fled on foot with three pairs of sneakers, a perfume bottle, and $2,000 from the man’s dresser, according to a police report.
A thief crept into a man’s Bay Ridge Avenue home on Feb. 17 and made off with power tools, said police.
The man told police he left the back door of his home between 10th and 11th avenues unlocked.
He left his home briefly, but upon returning at 7 pm he discovered a hammer drill and a set of screwdrivers missing, authorities said.
