Terror trio pushes woman to ground in purse theft

90th Precinct

Southside–Williamsburg

Daylight mugging

A malicious trio threw a woman to the ground on Barlett Street and ran off with her purse in broad daylight on Sept. 15.

The victim told cops she was near Harrison Avenue at around 1 pm when she was approached by three men, who threw her to the ground. Authorities said one of the goons held her down while another grabbed her purse, and one of them kicked her in the hip when she tried to escape the assailants, causing pain in her left side.

Heavy metal

A gaggle of young goons violently attacked a man on McKibbin Street on Sept. 18.

The man was between Manhattan and Graham avenues at 4:40 pm when a group of four or five troublemakers appeared and started kicking and punching him, police said.

The violent bunch also hit the victim over the head with a small metal stool, causing swelling and cuts to his head, according to a police report. The victim told cops the attack happened so fast, he could not get a good look at the perps, who he described as being in their late teens and early 20s.

Hands off

Cops cuffed a 50-year-old guy who they say grabbed a 17-year-old girl in the lobby of her Seigel Street building on Sept. 19, leaving her bruised on her neck and chest.

The victim told cops she walked into her residence between Humboldt Street and Bushwick Avenue at 5:30 pm and was greeted by the alleged fiend, who she said grabbed her by the shirt and forcefully ripped off the two chains from around her neck, leaving bruises on her neck and chest, according to a police report.

The man fled when someone else came into the lobby, but cops say they caught up with him on Bushwick Avenue near Devoe Street, where he allegedly dropped a knife as he fled.

Villain on wheels

A vile taxi driver assaulted a female passenger in the backseat of his yellow cab after pulling over near Roebling and Grand Streets in the early morning hours of Sept. 19.

The woman got in the yellow cab at around 2 am, but after a few blocks the driver pulled over, got into the backseat, and climbed on top of the victim, then proceeded to choke her and grab her breast, authorities say.

The victim told cops the low-life’s choke hold constricted her airway and left her neck in pain. The cops do not know the taxi’s medallion number, according to a police report.

Band of skulls

A band of baddies in skull masks beat up a guy on Devoe Street on Sept. 14 — and even managed to make off with his phone.

Five shady characters in dark hoodies and skull masks surrounded the guy while he was between Judge and Olive streets at around 9 pm and started to punch him, according to authorities.

The victim tried fighting them off, then ran down Devoe Street towards Bushwick Avenue, cops said. When one of the vicious villains yelled “Drop your phone,” the victim obeyed, according to a police report.
