Two thugs beat up and robbed a man on Third Avenue on Feb. 11 after nonchalantly approaching him.
The man was near the corner of 80th Street at around 2 pm when the thugs pounced.
After punching the 35-year-old man in the face, the crooks stole his wallet, keys and cellphone, cops said.
Two 72nd Street homes were robbed on Feb. 13 one hour and 10 blocks apart from each other.
The first burglary, between 11th and 12th Avenues, occurred at 10:15 am when a burglar broke through the basement door to gain entry into the house. Police say the crook made off with $15,300 in cash and jewelry.
An hour later, at 9:15 am, a house between Narrows Avenue and Colonial Road was burglarized after a perp entered through the kitchen window.
In this case, the thief stole a laptop, cash, and expensive cognac, cops said.
