Rock and rolled

Some bruisers hurled a rock at a guy and stole his phone and wallet while he was delivering food on Quincy Street on Jan. 12, police said.

The 38-year-old victim told police he was out making deliveries near Classon Avenue at about 8:30 pm when a pair of villains approached and threatened him with a silver firearm while another chucked a rock at his head, according to authorities.

The snakes fled with the victim’s Samsung Galaxy phone, wallet, credit cards, cash, and identification card, officials said.

Hospital housebreaker

A baddie stole a woman’s wallet from inside a DeKalb Avenue medical center on Jan. 9, police said.

The victim told police she had put her wallet — containing credit cards, her Social Security card, identification card, and health card — on a bed in the hospital’s pediatric emergency room near Ashland Place while she tended to a baby between 4:30 and 6:30 pm, and when she got home, realized it was gone, according to authorities.


A nogoodnik rode off with a guy’s bike he had locked up outside an Ashland Place building on Jan. 11, police said.

The guy told police he chained his black electric bike outside near Fulton Street a little before 8 pm and minutes later when he went back to get it, he discovered some jerk had cut off the chain and stolen it, according to authorities.

Not a fine wine

Cops cuffed a guy who they say hit a man in the head with a wine bottle inside a Classon Avenue bodega on Jan. 13.

The suspect struck the 33-year-old victim over the head with the bottle when he tried to purchase some items from the deli near Putnam Avenue at about 11:45 am, officials said.

Road rage

Police arrested a man for punching a guy’s car and demanding money from him while he was stopped at a red light on Myrtle Avenue on Jan. 3.

The victim told police he was sitting in his car waiting for the light to turn green near Washington Avenue a little after midnight when the suspect came up to him, tapped on the window, and then grabbed the victim and demanded cash, according to authorities.

The victim then pushed the suspect away and rolled up his window, but he came back and punched it multiple times, causing it to break, officials said.
