Three musketeers

Police arrested a trio of goons who allegedly attacked a guy — causing pain, bleeding, and multiple cuts to his head — outside his 76th Street apartment on March 4.

The alleged incident occurred outside the apartment between New Utrecht and 17th avenues at around 9:40 am, when the man was on his way out and two of the ruffians punched him in the face. The third bruiser allegedly struck the victim over the head with a beer can. The man sought treatment at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, according to the report.

Detention time

Some brute assaulted a boy and stole $350 cash from him at an 80th Street school on March 6.

The incident occurred at the school between 16th and 17th avenues at around 11:25 am, when the malefactor pushed the boy against a wall, causing pain to his shoulder, and then grabbed the wallet from his pocket before taking the money, dropping the wallet to the ground, and fleeing on foot, according to the report.

Surprise shooting

A lout shot a man in his leg and foot at his Bay 34th Street apartment on March 6.

The shooting occurred at the apartment between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at around 8:25 pm, when the shooter — who was allegedly wearing a light-colored hoodie and a dark-colored vest — opened the door to the man’s apartment and shot at him, striking him in the right thigh and left foot, police said. The man received treatment at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, according to the report.

Cash grab

A punk broke into a man’s car parked on New Utrecht Avenue and stole his wallet — with more than $300 cash and credit and ID cards inside — at some point between March 6 and 7.

The theft occurred at the parking spot between 17th Avenue and 80th Street at some time after 10 pm on March 6, when the man parked his car, according to the report, which added that he found his rear passenger window broken and his wallet missing when he returned to the car at 6 am the next morning.

Pilfered plastic

A thief swindled a West Sixth Street woman out of more than $2,100 by using her credit card information to make purchases at some point between March 6 – 9.

The woman, who lives between Avenue P and Quentin Road, noticed that the funds were missing from her account at around 2:30 pm on March 9, when she received an email receipt from a store listing the purchases, according to the report, which added that the woman had the card in her possession the entire time

Close call

A baddie threatened to shoot a man and stole $3,000 cash from him on 86th Street on March 8.

The incident occurred between Bay 35th Street and 24th Avenue shortly after midnight, when the punk approached the victim from behind and said, “Give me everything you have or I’ll shoot you,” police said. The crook then pressed a “black shiny object” to the man’s side and removed a plastic bag with cash from the front of his sweatshirt pocket, according to the report.

Blinged out crook

A punk stole $3,000 cash and jewelry from a woman’s Bay 41st Street home on March 9.

What a tool
