68th Precinct

Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights

Feel the burn

Armed thugs ripped off a Fourth Avenue gym on Aug. 14.

An employee told cops that two men brandishing a silver handgun and a Taser entered the workout spot between 87th and 88th streets at 8 am and ordered him to get on the floor.

They then led him into the office and told him to open the safe, where they snatched two envelopes containing $985, and ran off.

Wheelers steal

Perps swiped the wheels off a car on Colonial Road on Aug. 7.

The victim told cops that he parked between 76th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway at 11:30 pm and returned early the next morning to find the wheels were gone.

Not cool!

Thieves stole more than $2,600 in cash and checks from a truck on 66th Street on Aug. 12.

The truck driver told cops that he left the rig unlocked while making a delivery near 13th Avenue around 3:20 pm.

When he returned, a red cooler bag containing the cash and checks was gone.

Nothing sacred

A heartless thug swiped a purse from a woman praying at an 86th Street mosque on Aug. 12.

The victim told cops that she was in conversation with an alleged higher power at the mosque between Third and Fourth avenues at 11:15 pm when she saw a perp make off with her purse — which held less than $50, a cellphone and a Koran.
