Three on one

A 28-year-old was held up at knife-point and robbed of $300 during a late night jaunt on 67th Street on March 25.

The victim told police that he was nearing 13th Avenue at around 11:20 pm when the thugs jumped him.

One of the thieves flashed a knife as his accomplices rifled through the victim’s pockets, taking his cash, cops said.

60-minute steal

A thief with an acute sense of timing looted a Fourth Avenue apartment just as his victim left his home to run some errands on March 22.

The 33-year-old tenant told police that he had left his apartment, which is near 69th Street, at 4 pm and returned an hour later to find his front door open.

During that time, a crook had crept into his apartment through a fire escape window and taken a laptop computer, $500, a jar of coins and a Blackberry.

Laptop grab

A 50-year-old woman returned to her 11th Avenue home near 79th Street on March 25 to find that someone had kicked in her back door.

The woman told police that she knew something was wrong as soon as she stepped inside her home at 1:45 pm. After finding her damaged back door, she realized her $800 laptop was missing.

Going nowhere

A thief swiped a New Jersey woman’s 2009 Infiniti from 97th Street on March 22.

Someone made off with all four tires and custom rims as the car sat near Third Avenue in the nine hours before the theft was discovered at 7:40 am.
