The alleged assault took place at 94th Street around 12:30 am, and the man refused medical attention, according to the report.

Must’ve had a headache

A pair of perps stole an estimated $2,200 worth of over-the-counter drugs from a Fort Hamilton Parkway store on July 13.

Drugged up

A trio of thieves stole thousands in over-the-counter medication from a Third Avenue store on July 14.

The theft occurred at the store between 94th and 95th streets a little after 1:30 am, police said.

Window of opportunity

A thief burglarized a man’s Fifth Avenue business on July 15 and stole $5,150 and two Apple laptops.

The theft occurred in the middle of the night at the business at 76th Street, police said. The owner returned to the business at 7 am and found that a perp had pried open the bars of 76th Street window and pushed it inside to climb in. He then ransacked the cupboards, register, and the owner’s office for valuables, and fled with the cash and computers, according to the report.

Biked away

A lout stole a Honda motorcycle from its 65th Street parking spot on July 15.

The bike was parked between 11th and 12th avenues, and the sneak stole it before the owner returned to the parking spot at around 11:30 am, authorities said.

Afternoon steal

A swiper stole a man’s 2017 black Honda Accord — with a stroller, car seat, EZ pass, and debit cards inside — from his 78th Street driveway on July 15.

The theft occurred sometime before 3:10 pm, when the man returned to his home between Fourth and Fifth avenues, police said, adding the sneak went on to use the debit card to make purchases.
