A real jerk robbed a 10-year-old boy as he walked down Fort Hamilton Parkway on Dec. 11.
The helpless victim told cops that he was heading home from school at around 3:30 pm when the thug approached him at the corner of 65th Street. The suspect reached into the boy’s pockets and grabbed a cellphone and a school lunch pass before running away.
At least two neighborhood homes were burgled last week when Bay Ridge residents neglected to lock their windows:
• In the first incident, someone broke into a Battery Avenue home on Dec. 10. The 70-year-old owner of the home, at the corner of Dahlgren Place, told police that she was walking into her house at around 1:30 pm when a man ran out of her bedroom and pushed past her down the stairs. When the victim went into the bedroom, she noticed one of the windows was wide open and more than $5,600 worth of jewelry was missing.
• Two days later, someone burgled a home on 67th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues. The tenant said he left for work at around 8 am, and when he returned just after 5 pm, he discovered that someone had climbed through an open window and snatched a laptop, a $1,800 piccolo and a couple jars of loose change containing more than $500.
Someone stripped a car parked on 82nd Street on Dec. 10.
The victim, 43, told cops that he had parked his white Ford between 10th and 11th avenues at around 1 am. When he returned just five hours later, someone had done more than $1,200 worth of damage, removing all four tires and rims.
A petty thief snatched a woman’s purse as she walked down Ovington Avenue on Dec. 11.
The victim, 29, said she was at the corner of Fourth Avenue at midnight when the man ran up behind her, grabbed her bag and fled, making off with $340, a phone and various debit and credit cards.
