Here’s another reason to be careful about who you invite back to your place at 5 am.
A one-night stand turned criminal on Jan. 28 when a bad lover snatched a 27-year-old woman’s wallet from her Freeman Street apartment.
The victim met the suspected thief in a Lower East Side bar and invited him back to her flat, which is between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard.
Sometime after they returned to the apartment at around 5 am, the victim got into an argument with the crook and demanded that he leave.
But on his way out, he grabbed her wallet, which contained cash and credit cards.
L of a snatch
A pickpocket snatched a straphanger’s wallet on a Brooklyn-bound L train on Jan. 24.
The covert crook subtly unzipped the 23-year-old victim’s purse at around 10:15 pm as the train rolled from the Union Square stop to the Bedford Avenue station.
Once the thief opened the bag, he grabbed the wallet — which contained cash, credit cards, a Metrocard, and IDs — and escaped unseen.
