Thug pistol-whips Bay Ridge man

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Gun to the face

A punk pistol-whipped a Bay Ridge man on 68th Street on Sept. 8, according to police.

The victim said he was between Third and Fourth avenues at 4:55 am arguing with a group of three men — one of them holding a silver semi-automatic weapon — when the gun-toting thug struck the man across the face with the firearm.


A creep swiped a $7,000 Rolex watch from a 67th Street apartment on Sept. 3, cops say.

The victim told police that he left his home between 12th and 13th avenues at 7:30 pm, and came back at 9:20 pm to find that someone had forced open his window facing the backyard, and made off with his pricey timepiece. Neighbors reported not seeing or hearing anything unusual.

Roadside rip-off

Two thugs helped themselves to a man’s cash and cellphone while he was sitting in his parked car on 72nd Street on Sept.6, police say.

The man said he and a female friend were sitting in his car between 10th and 11th avenues watching movies when the two jerks came up, opened the vehicle’s doors, and took his phone off his lap and $180 out of his pocket. The dastardly duo then sped off in a silver Mazda.

Treasure trove

A crook took $2,200 in jewelry and gadgetry from a Sixth Avenue apartment sometime between Aug. 31 and Sept. 3, according to cops.

The victim reported that she left her home between 79th and 80th streets at 5 pm on Aug. 31, and came back three days later at 11 pm to find her bedroom window open and $500 worth of rings, a $300 bracelet, a $200 watch, a $1,000 necklace, and her $200 iPhone all gone.

Boxed out

A jerk stole a cashbox with $2,100 inside from a 65th Street grocery store on Sept. 8, police say.

Surveillance tapes from the Three Guys from Brooklyn at Fort Hamilton Parkway show the punk taking the box from the front counter of the store at 4:08 pm.

Bad herb

A bandit made off with $4,600 in jewelry and herbal supplements from a 78th Street apartment between Aug. 29 and Sept. 5, cops say.

The victim said he left his home between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 10 am and returned a week later at 6 pm to find a $2,000 chain, $600 bracelet, and $2,000 in ginseng root missing. Neighbors told police they didn’t hear or see anything suspicious while the victim was away.
