Some jerk punched and mugged a guy on 70th Street on March 16.

The victim told cops that he was between Eighth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway at around 9:40 pm when an unknown dude jumped him, punching him in the face. The perp then grabbed the victim’s iPhone and fled.

Register raid

Someone broke into Lifeline Pharmacy on 13th Avenue overnight on March 18 to steal cash, a credit card machine, a computer and various store products.

The pharmacy’s manager told cops that he arrived at the store, which is near 72nd Street, at 7 am to find that the glass door had been busted.

Once inside, he saw that goods were missing and two cash registers had been forced open.

Watch out

Some jerk stole a Rolex watch, a laptop and an iPod from a car parked at 67th Street overnight on March 6.

The victim told cops that he parked his 2010 Dodge Sedan between Sixth and Seventh avenues at around 9 pm. He returned at 11:30 am to find his passenger-side window smashed and his stuff gone.

Tool bagged

Someone broke into a 2004 Chevrolet parked near the corner of 11th Avenue and 62nd Street between March 18 and March 19 to steal power tools and other construction equipment.

The handy man victim told cops that he parked his ride at 8:53 am and returned the following afternoon to find his passenger-side window broken. When he looked in the back seat, he saw that his two drills, extension cords and electric saw were gone.
