Phone grab

Cops cuffed a woman who they say stole a teen’s phone on Flatbush Avenue on Sept. 29 and then socked her in the face, police said.

The 41-year-old suspect grabbed the 17-year-old’s iPhone X from her hand near Fulton Street a little after midnight and then punched her in the face, breaking her nose, according to authorities.

Fast attack

A pair of baddies stole a wad of cash from a teen at a Fulton Street fast food joint on Sept. 28, police said.

The 16-year-old victim told cops the two brutes came up to him inside the eatery near Flatbush Avenue at about 3 pm, dragged him outside, and then pushed him to the ground and kicked and punched him. The villains swiped $65 from him and then fled, police said.

Pointed attack

A crook threatened a guy and swiped his wallet inside an apartment building on Cumberland Walk on Sept. 29, police said.

The 24-year-old victim was near Myrtle Avenue at about 9:30 pm when the sneak took out a pocket knife with a gray blade and a red handle and demanded he hand over his wallet, cops said.

The villain grabbed the victim’s wallet from his pocket and fled, according to cops.

Bad memory

Police arrested a woman for allegedly pushing an elderly woman to the floor inside a Saint Edwards Street nursing home on Sept. 25, police said.

The 78-year-old victim, who police say suffers from Alzheimer’s and only speaks Cantonese, told authorities that the suspect pushed her, causing her to fall over and get a bruise on her head, according to authorities.

Data breach

Some lout broke into a guy’s Washington Avenue house on Sept. 26 and stole his electronics, police said.

The victim told cops he had left his apartment near Hall Street at about 2 pm for work, and when he returned at about 6:30 pm, he noticed his laptop, music player, and sim card were missing, according to authorities.
