Bodega beat-down

Police arrested a man who they say punched a bodega manager in the face and beat him with a bat inside the Fourth Avenue store on March 22.

The assault occurred around 1:15 pm in the shop at 53rd Street, and officers arrested the man soon after.

Picked it out

A pilferer stole a woman’s wallet with nearly $1,100 and various credit cards inside while she was shopping in a Third Avenue store on March 23.

The woman was walking through the store at 37th Street at around 1 pm when the perp went inside her purse and grabbed the wallet, according to the report.

Not-so-street smart

Cops cuffed a man for pushing another man to the ground and stealing $90 from him on Third Avenue on March 23.

The assault occurred at 50th Street, between 2:30 and 3:30 pm, and police arrested him later that same day when the victim pointed him out.

To thieve or not to thieve

A burglar broke into a Seventh Avenue bodega through its basement door sometime overnight on March 23.

The robber entered the bodega between 49th and 50th streets through the basement door at sometime between 10 pm on the 23rd and 11 am the next day, breaking three locks with unknown objects and going into the storage area.

The shop owner said he was unsure if anything was taken.
