Pass the baton

A brute hit a man with an expandable baton on 52nd Street on March 18, causing bruising, swelling, and lacerations to his head.

The assault occurred between Second and Third avenues at around 7:15 am, according to the police report.

Jewel heist

A burglar broke into a Prospect Avenue basement at sometime between March 9 and March 17 and stole more than $8,500 worth of jewelry.

The victim left the home between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 9 am on March 9 and returned at 5 am a week later to find the gems missing, police reported. It is unknown how the baddie entered or where he fled, cops said.

Cash con

A swindler cashed a forged business check worth more than $9,300 for a Fifth Avenue bodega on Jan. 30, the owner reported on March 15.

The lout cashed the phony check for the bodega between 47th and 48th streets between 8 am and 5 pm on Jan. 30, the woman reported just after 4:15 pm on March 15.

Drinking buddies no more

Two louts punched a man in the face, causing him to bleed from his nose, and then stole his cash, sneakers, and a cellphone inside a Sixth Avenue home on March 18.

The trio was drinking beer together inside the home near 45th Street just before 12:30 pm when the dastardly duo turned on the other man, punching him in the face and taking off with his goods, cops said.

Breaking glass

Cops cuffed a man who they say broke both a glass door and a man’s glasses at a 39th Street hotel on March 18.

Police say the man was at the hotel between Fifth and Sixth avenues around midnight when he kicked the door — causing it to break — and then struck a man in the face — causing his glasses to break.
