68th Precinct

Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights

Crook sandwich

Two thugs jumped a 21-year-old on Fourth Avenue on July 25, taking the man’s cash and wallet.

The Dyker Heights resident was near 76th Street at 4:30 am when he found himself sandwiched between the two thugs.

As one of the crooks trained a gun on him, the perp behind him rifled his pockets, taking $200, his wallet and a credit card, cops were told.

Bauble break-in

A con with a bling addiction swiped $10,000 in baubles from an Ovington Avenue apartment on July 21, but cops aren’t sure just how he got inside.

The 51-year-old tenant told police he left his home between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 10 am.

He returned six hours later to find his bedroom ransacked and jewelry missing.

Door kicked

A thug put his best foot forward — right into the door of a Wakeman Place apartment on July 23, police believe.

A 34-year-old victim told police he returned home at 5:40 pm to learn that someone damaged her door and door frame to her home between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue.

The door kicker made off with a laptop computer and a pearl necklace, she told police.

More damaged doors

A burglar forced his way into a Dyker Heights apartment on July 20, taking a gold ring and a laptop computer.

The 27-year-old victim left his apartment between 11th and 12th avenues at 11 am, he told police. He came back just before 5 pm to find his front door open and his property missing.
