Friend or foe

A group of punks stole their friend’s bag and punched her on Smith Street on Sept. 6, police said.

The 31-year-old victim had gotten into an argument with the baddies over drugs near Pacific Street at about 6 pm when they socked her in the face and then fled with her Coach purse containing her cellphone, prescription medication, and credit cards inside it, according to authorities.

Shopping spree

A pair of louts stole a bunch of clothes from a Smith Street boutique on Sept. 14, police said.

The two good-for-nothings entered the shop near Dean Street at about 1:15 pm and pushed a store employee out of the way before running out with their ill-gotten duds, according to authorities.

Park bully

A brute hit a guy over the head with a metal pipe inside a park on Schermerhorn Street on Sept. 11, police said.

The 65-year-old victim told cops he was sleeping on a bench inside the green space near Nevins Street at about 5 pm when the villain struck him with the pipe, according to authorities.

Now that’s cold!

Some prowlers swiped thousands of dollars worth of a woman’s jewelry from her Bergen Street home on Sept. 7, police said.

The victim told police she had kept her engagement ring and earrings inside a drawer in her apartment near Hoyt Street when workers from a heating and cooling company came over to perform maintenance alone in her bedroom that day at about 5 pm.

The woman couldn’t find the pieces of jewelry the next day, and said her housekeeper and children denied taking them, according to authorities.

Gym rat

A punk stole a guy’s bag from his locker inside a gym on Boerum Place on Sept. 9, police said.

The 71-year-old victim told police he put his bag inside the locker, without a lock, when he got to the gym near State Street at about 10 am, and that when he finished working out at about 1:20 pm, he noticed his bag was gone.

The crook had ran off with his NorthFace bag with shorts, a shirt, and credit cards inside it, and charged $350 on one of the cards at two different locations, according to authorities.
