Brutal attack

Some jerk brutally punched and kicked a woman until she was unconscious, then stole her purse on Jewel Street on Jan. 8.

The 22-year-old victim told cops that she was at Nassau Avenue at 11 pm when the thug came up behind her, choked her and threw her on the ground before kicking and punching her until she blacked out.

When she awoke, the perp and her purse — containing an iPod, cash and a cellphone — were gone.

Quick snatch

A speedy ruffian grabbed a woman’s bag on Bedford Avenue on Jan. 8.

The victim told cops that she was at N. 12th Street at 4 pm when the thug ran up from behind her, grabbed her bag — which contained a laptop — and fled.

She wasn’t able to identify the sprinter for police.
