A gun-toting thug robbed a 92nd Street bodega early in the morning on May 1.

The 30-year-victim told cops a man wearing black clothes, a baseball cap and a mask entered the bodega, which is between Gatling Place and Fort Hamilton Parkway, just after 1 am.

“Give me the money!” the man demanded, pointing a gun at the victim’s head. After the victim handed over $300, the suspect ran out of the building.

Two burgs

Two Fourth Avenue businesses were burgled within an hour of each other on April 30.

In the first incident, someone broke the lock on the cellar door of a bodega between 68th and Senator streets at around 10:30 pm. Once inside, the thief took more than $600 from the register and safe.

One hour later and just a few doors away, someone broke the lock to the cellar door of a diner. This time, the thief made off with more than $5,000 from the restaurant’s cash register, safe and ATM.


A quick-acting thief stole a man’s wallet at a Fourth Avenue doctor’s office on May 1.

The 62-year-old victim was paying his bill at the office’s front desk at around 10:30 am when he dropped his umbrella on the ground. As he bent down to retrieve it, someone snatched his wallet off the counter and ran out of the building, which is at the corner of 76th Street.

The suspect got away with $100, and credit and debit cards.
