62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Brotherly love

A man slammed his brother in the head with a rock, on 86th Street on May 30, causing a laceration.

The victim told police that his brother came into his apartment by 20th Avenue at 6:40 a.m. and hit him with the rock, causing minor laceration to the left side of his head. The victim then alleges that after he went to work, the brute came back and damaged $250 worth of his clothing and stole $400 in cash, according to authorities.

Scrappy bandit

A thief swiped $10,000 from a scrap yard on 63rd Street on June 5, police said.

The perp entered the scrap yard’s office between 15th and 16th avenues at 1:50 p.m. and snatched the cash before making off in a white vehicle, according to authorities.

Subway sleazeball

A man pulled a woman’s hair and threw her bag and cellphone on the floor at the 86th street station on May 13, cops said.

The goon walked behind her on the platform, grabbed her bag, and threw it on the ground, according to authorities. The bruiser then followed her onto the train and at the next stop, pulled her onto the platform, where he grabbed her cellphone and smashed it against the ground, police said. The victim fell and hit her head on the bench, according to authorities.

Bodega bum

A brigand stole $900 from a bodega employee on 18th Avenue on May 28, police said.

The thief allegedly went into the bodega on 80th Street three times asking for change for $100 before entering at 8:20 a.m., going around the register, and telling the victim to give him the money or he’ll hurt her child, cops said. When the bandit couldn’t open the register, he snatched $900 from her purse and ran off, according to authorities.
