A crook purloined a women’s wallet after she left it unattended in a McDonald’s on 86th Street on June 19.

The woman left her wallet in the fast food joint, which is between Fourth and Fifth avenues, at around 2:30 pm — and faster than you could say “Gimme a double cheeseburger with cheese,” the thief made the pick.

The wallet contained $400, a credit card, and gift cards from Babies-R-Us and Children’s Place.

Heavy metal

A weapon-wielding thug attacked a 23-year-old man on 79th Street on June 20.

Cops say that the victim was near Third Avenue at around 3 am when he got into an argument with the other man, who then pulled an “unidentified metal object” and used it to slice up his victim.


A thief stole the wallet of a gym rat in the New York Sports Club on Fourth Avenue and 86th Street on June 15.

The 24-year-old victim told police that he had locked the wallet in a locker while he worked out at 7:30 pm.

After an hour of sweating, he returned to find the locker broken and $100, a VISA card, and an unlimited Metrocard missing from his wallet.
