Subway sneak

A villain stole a woman’s phone while on a subway near Clinton Street on Feb. 5, police said.

The victim told cops she was aboard a Brooklyn-bound R train near Montague Street at about 4 am when the snake shoved her down on a bench and tried to grab her phone, according to authorities. The victim tried to fight back but the good-for-nothing eventually snatched it and ran off the train, cops said.

Unwelcome home

A crook stole a guy’s wallet and personal documents from his Bridge Street home sometime between Feb. 7 and Feb. 10, police said.

The victim told cops when he returned to his apartment near Water Street he discovered the baddie had damaged his front door and taken his cash, passports, credit card, wallet, and green card, according to authorities.

Grab and go

Some jerk stole a woman’s wallet inside a Pearl Street medical facility on Feb. 4, police said.

The victim told cops she had last used her wallet at about 12:30 pm to take out cash inside the office near Willoughby Street, but then three hours later it was gone, along with her diamond earrings, cash, a check, and driver’s license, according to authorities.

In the blink of an eye

A cur snatched a woman’s bag inside a State Street restaurant on Feb. 8, police said.

The victim told police she put her handbag on the floor inside the bar near Hoyt Street at about 7:45 pm and when she reached down to get it about 20 minutes later, it was gone along with her two cellphones, iPad, and wallet worth a total of $2,500, according to authorities.
