Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
Rat takes mouse
A jerk jimmied his way into a Battery Avenue apartment on June 14 and made off with $1,500 in jewelry — including a $100 Mickey Mouse pendant, police say.
The victim reported that her son was the last one out of her apartment between 89th and 90th streets at 11:15 am. When she returned at 6:30 pm, her door was wide open and her valuables were gone.
A cowardly creep tried to swipe the purse of a woman working in an 86th Street gift shop on June 17 — but fled the second the would-be victim confronted him.
The woman said she that she was in New Gift Shop between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 8:30 pm when she saw the pitiful perp trying to take her bag off a hook at the back of the store.
But when she stepped up to him, the lily-livered loser let go of the loot and ran.
A robber snatched a woman’s iPhone from her hand and fled after a brief struggle on 81st Street on June 12, cops report.

A thug knocked a Bay Ridge woman to the ground and stole her purse on Colonial Road on June 11 — not realizing that the bag was empty except for the victim’s keys and ID.

Luckily for her, the jerk dropped the bag.
