Booked him

A thief knocked down a man on Seventh Avenue and stole his book bag on Aug. 11.

The victim told cops that he was near 73rd Street at around 2:45 am when the jerk hit him and said, “Don’t turn around and drop your book bag,” which is a tough imperative to follow, if you are a grammar stickler.

The victim complied with the gist of the request, and the thug fled with the bag, which contained clothes, cash, and ID.

Breaking and entering

At least two homes were broken into for computers on Aug. 9. Here’s a roundup:

• Perps broke into a building on Seventh Avenue between 67th and 68th streets at around 12:50 am, getting in through the basement before swiping $5,300 worth of electronics, including a TV, three laptops and an Apple desktop computer.

• Hours later, perps forced their way into an apartment on 70th Street between 12th and 13th avenues and stole a computer, camera and jewelry. The tenant said that the crime must have occurred at around 8:30 pm.

Wham bam

Two men beat up and mugged a man on 10th Avenue early on Aug. 9.

The victim told cops that he was leaving a restaurant and walking toward 64th Street at around 5:20 am when the men accosted him, punched him repeatedly in the face, and robbed him for his wallet. The perps then fled.
