72nd Precinct

Sunset Park–Windsor Terrace


A thief made off with a woman’s electric bike she parked on Windsor Place sometime overnight on March 3.

The victim told police she locked up her bike between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at 7 pm, and returned the following evening to find her pricey Urban Arrow E-bike stolen.


A gunman pistol-whipped a man on 55th Street on March 6.

The victim told police he was attempting to break up a fight between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 7:50 pm, when one of the brawlers brandished a silver firearm and cracked him with it over the mouth, chipping his tooth.


Four brutes beat a man outside of a Third Avenue nightclub with a baseball bat on March 11.

The victim told police he was leaving the bar between 50th and 51st streets at 2:30 am, when one of the fiends suddenly smacked him over the head with a Louisville slugger, while his buddies started stomping on him.

Bad company

A thief looted a woman’s 62nd Street apartment on March 8, taking her iPhone, jewelry, and passport.

A roommate told police she heard the suspect sneak into their home near Fourth Avenue at 3 am, before ransacking the victim’s bedroom and fleeing with an estimated $500 worth of loot.

Coat check

Some crook beat a man in an attempt to steal his jacket on 49th Street on March 9.

The victim told police the thief jumped him as he was exiting a taxi between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 2:01 am, and his attacker wrestled him to the ground in an attempt to rip off the coat.

Fortunately, the victim managed to hold onto his clothing, and the would-be thief fled empty-handed, cops said.
