68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Gunning for trouble

A trio of perps threatened a man with a gun on 62nd Street on Aug. 18 and demanded he hand over his belongings.

The man was between 13th and 14th avenues around 10:30 am when the trio approached from behind and pressed a gun to his chest, telling him “drop your s--- and run,” according to the report. Police did not respond to an inquiry about what property the thieves stole from the man.

Gone in the night

A thief stole a man’s car from its Fort Hamilton Parkway parking spot on Aug. 15.

The theft occurred from the spot between Bay Ridge Avenue and 70th Street around midnight, when the man parked his car to go into a store, according to the report.

Electric steal

A crook stole a large sum of electronics from a Fourth Avenue store on Aug. 15.

The perp stole the items from behind the counter at the store between 86th and 87th streets just after 6 pm, and then fled the scene in an unknown direction, police reported.

Midday steal

A pilferer stole a wallet with credit and debit cards inside, plus $70, from a car parked on 68th Street on Aug. 16.

The crook made the steal from the car, which was parked between Colonial Road and Ridge Boulevard, at some point before noon, cops said.

Naked lies

A lout threatened to share a Bay Ridge Avenue man’s nude photos with his friends and family if he did not send money through a Western Union account on Aug. 16.

The man, who lives at Fourth Avenue, reported the incident to police just after 3:30 pm, adding that he only knows the perp through Facebook messenger, according to the report.

Bottled up

Police arrested a pair of men who allegedly threw a bottle at another man — causing lacerations to his hand — in front of a Third Avenue bar on Aug. 19.

The alleged assault occurred in front of the bar between Bay Ridge Parkway and 76th Street around 3:30 am, police said.
