Missing medical supplies

Some punk smashed a woman’s car window and stole her purse on Rockwell Place on March 11, police said.

The 25-year-old woman parked her car near DeKalb Avenue at about 11 am and when she returned at 1 pm, saw the baddie had shattered her back driver’s side window and swiped her purse — containing cash, a stethoscope, debit card, and blood pressure cuffs — from inside the vehicle, cops said.

The cur tried to use the woman’s stolen card at a department store on Fulton Street, according to authorities.

Internal incident

Cops cuffed a fire department emergency responder for hitting her co-worker’s arm inside a DeKalb Avenue hospital on March 4, police said.

The victim told police she was working inside the medical center’s emergency room near Ashland Place at about 6:45 am when the suspect hit her in the left arm with a tablet, officials said.

What a trickster!

Some con artist scammed a woman out of thousands of dollars for an Ashland Place apartment on Feb. 16, police said.

The 52-year-old woman met the fraudster near Fulton Street at about 7:30 pm and handed $3,000 for the apartment, but she later found out it was a scam and the phony had nothing to do with the building, and reported it to police on March 6, according to authorities.

Subway scoundrel

A nogoodnik swiped a guy’s wallet while he was sleeping on a subway inside the station near Fulton Street on Feb. 27, police said.

The 21-year-old victim told police he had fallen asleep on a Manhattan-bound C train at about 10:30 pm, and when he woke up a few stops later near Washington Avenue, his black leather wallet with $150 and his New York State identification card inside it was gone, cops said.
