Words hurt

A lout stabbed a man in the stomach on a Manhattan-bound D train near the 20th Avenue station on Feb. 25 after the pair got in a verbal dispute.

The incident occurred near the station at 86th Street at around 9:15 am, according to the report, which added that the man then got off the train at the 20th Avenue stop and received medical treatment at Maimonides Medical Center.

Car thief

A thief stole a gray 2019 Hyundai Sonata from its 67th Street parking spot at some point between Feb. 25 and March 1.

The incident occurred between 19th and 20th avenues at some point after 7 pm on Feb. 25, police said.

Not a moment too soon

Police arrested a man who they say was in the process of robbing a W. 10th Street home with another man when officers allegedly caught the pair in action on Feb. 26.

The pair were allegedly robbing their former home between Kings Highway and Highlawn Avenue at around 7:20 am when officers caught them stealing a safe deposit box with jewelry and cash inside, said authorities. Police arrested one of the men, and the other fled on foot, according to the report.

Purse pilferer

A baddie stole an employee’s purse with $1,500, a credit card, and the woman’s cellphone inside at a Bay Parkway store on Feb. 26.

The robbery occurred at the store at W. Ninth Street shortly after 11:30 am, when the criminal went behind the counter and grabbed the woman’s bag with the materials inside, according to the report.

Electric steal

A lout stole $700 worth of electronics from a Quentin Road store on Feb. 27.

The theft occurred at the store at W. 11th Street at some point after 3 am by entering through the unlocked basement door, according to the report, which added that the punk left behind a screwdriver and black gloves and turned off the security camera upon arrival.

Not-so-secret swindler

A crook swindled a Bay 22nd Street woman out of $2,450 on Feb. 27 by pretending to be a recruiter hiring for a secret shopper, the woman told police on March 1.

The woman, who lives between Bath and Cropsey avenues, told police that the perp called her at around 7 pm on Feb. 27 and told her she had to purchase two Apple gift cards in order to continue with the application that she had actually filed to be a secret shopper. The woman bought the gift cards and texted them to the perp, according to the report.

Not parked anymore

A baddie stole a white 2016 Toyota from its 85th Street parking spot at some point between Feb. 27 and March 2.

The incident occurred at the parking spot at Stillwell Avenue at some point after 3:30 pm on Feb. 27, police reported.

Didn’t ask nicely

A scoundrel stole a man’s car on 86th Street on Feb. 28.

The man told police he parked his vehicle between Bay Parkway and Bay 31st Street at around 7 pm. His mother-in-law stayed inside the car with the engine running, and she told police that the miscreant leaned in through the driver’s-side window and told her to get out of the car.

The crook then fled in the car on Bay 32nd Street towards Benson Avenue, according to the report.

Didn’t check out

A criminal swindled a woman out of $2,500, likely by altering a check she had mailed in an Avenue P mailbox on Feb. 28, according to police.

The woman told police she mailed the check for $1,550 at the mailbox near W. Second Street at 7 am on Feb. 28, and then saw that a check for $2,500 had been deposited to an unknown bank account on March 3, according to the report.

Duo on the run

A pair of criminals threatened to physically harm a man before stealing his electronics and backpack on 63rd Street on March 1.

The man told cops he was between 19th and 20th avenues at around 1:30 pm, when the duo exited their white Toyota Camry in front of where the man was walking and approached him, issuing their demand and making the threat before stealing his goods. The pair then got back in their cars and fled on 19th Avenue in an unknown direction, according to the report.

Didn’t get far

A pair of punks assaulted a man and stole his wallet with $200 inside on Bay 20th Street on March 1.

The incident occurred between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at about 9:25 pm, when the dastardly duo approached the man from behind and grabbed his neck before throwing him to the ground, punching, and kicking him while yelling, “give me the money,” according to the report.

The pair then grabbed the goods — including the man’s phone — and ran off to the backyard of a house further up the block, towards 86th Street, where the man followed them and was able to retrieve his phone, police said.

Glass didn’t stop them

A baddie ransacked a Bay 40th Street bedroom after breaking in through a back glass door at some point between March 2 and 3.

The break-in and burglary occurred at some point after 2:30 pm on March 2, police said, adding that they did not yet know what the crook took.
