Scoot away

A couple of louts hit a man with a scooter at a N. Oxford Walk residence on April 13.

The victim was in the apartment near Cumberland Walk and Park Avenue at 6:30 p.m. when the brutes punched him in the face, causing cuts and bruising to the head, chased him out of the apartment, and then struck him with a small scooter, police said.

Three times the charm

A rogue swiped more than $500 from a woman’s bank account near Myrtle Avenue on March 20.

The victim reported on April 10 at 9 a.m. that some punk conducted three fraudulent transactions on her bank account near Hall Street and Emerson Place, police said.

Debit doppelganger

A lout wiped more than $300 from a woman’s bank account near her Carlton Avenue apartment on April 8.

The woman told police she tried to buy a sandwich with her debit card from a shop near Adelphi Street around noon, but the card was declined. When she asked her bank, she was told that some nogoodnik either forged or duplicated her card to make a cash withdrawal, police said.

Big haul

A burglar stole an automated teller machine and $150 from a S. Portland Avenue restaurant on April 8.

The crook cracked the front door lock of the eatery near Hanson Place and Fulton Street around 10:20 a.m., then walked off with the cash dispenser and money, police said.

Not so secure

A conman syphoned $3,000 from a woman’s bank account near Clinton Avenue on April 8.

The fraudster introduced himself as an employee of the social security administration and called the victim at her apartment near Myrtle Avenue and Willoughby Avenue at 1 p.m., according to police.

The crook said that all of her accounts would be frozen and her social security would stop working, then he prompted her to withdraw the money from a bitcoin machine and transfer it to him, police said.

Unholy check

Cops cuffed a man for allegedly forging and cashing a check from a church on Fulton Street on April 9, police said.

The guy allegedly forged the check and cashed it in for $2,000 at a check cashing business near Washington and Waverly avenues at 6:40 p.m., according to police.

Clinton Ave. scammer

A fraudster stole more than $400 from woman near Clinton Avenue, the victim reported on April 11.

The woman checked her bank account near Willoughby and DeKalb avenues, when she realized that some scammer had made several withdrawals from her account between March 30 and April 2, police said.

Dining and stealing

A crook looted a woman’s car parked at a DeKalb Avenue restaurant sometime overnight on April 10.

The victim told police she parked the car outside the eatery near Clermont Avenue and Adelphi Street at 6:45 p.m. and returned the next day at 9:15 a.m., according to police.

Police said the scoundrel stole a laptop, handbag, MetroCard, diary, and personal cards worth more than $2,000, police reported.
