68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Still safe

A crook broke into a Third Avenue restaurant and unsuccessfully tried to break into a basement safe — leaving a hole in the wall — after he cut the lock on the eatery’s back door on Sept. 1.

The break-in and attempted theft occurred at the restaurant at 86th Street just after 12:30 am, police said.

Without a trace

A mystery marauder attacked a drunk man in Leif Ericson Park on 67th Street on Aug. 30, causing bruising to his face and a laceration to his stomach.

Emergency medical personnel picked up the man from the park between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 11:50 am, according to the report, which added that the man refused to give police any information about the attackers.

Can it

A trio of punks struck a man in the head with an aluminum can on Fort Hamilton Parkway on Aug. 29.

The assault occurred at 63rd Street at around 6:45 pm, after the perps followed the man and the woman he was with, asking “how much” and waving money at her, according to the report. When the man confronted the perps, the assault began, according to the report.

Cloak and dagger

Police arrested and charged a man with criminal possession of a weapon after they allegedly found him with a dagger and marijuana in his black 2016 Ford Fusion on Seventh Avenue on Sept. 1.

Officers pulled him over at 65th Street around 3 am for having a covered license plate and tinted drivers’-side windows, and found the materials, according to the report.

Bloody fight

A lout struck a man in the face — causing pain, swelling, and a bloody nose — on 14th Avenue on Sept. 1.

The assault occurred between 64th and 65th streets just after 4 pm. The perp fled in a white car in an unknown direction, according to the report.

Cash grab

A thief stole $1,300 from a woman’s purse when she forgot it on 66th Street on Sept. 2.

The theft occurred at the corner of 10th Avenue just after 12:30 am.
