Home invasion

Two thieves forced their way into an E. 54th Street home on Aug. 13 — taking an assortment of jewelry and clothes.

The victim, a 54-year-old woman, was outside of her home at 8 pm when the suspects ran up and pulled a gun on her. The two then forced the woman to open her front door — telling her not to look at them as they raided the place.

Mugged on Flatbush

A thug jumped a 23-year-old on Flatbush Avenue on Aug. 11, taking a book bag filled with electronics.

The victim was nearing Quentin Road at 11 pm when the thug jumped him from behind — punching his victim in the face before running off with the man’s property.

Gunning for chains

Three armed thugs jumped an 18-year-old on E. 53rd Street on Aug. 12, ripping the gold chain off his neck.

The suspects jumped the victim near Glenwood Road at 3:50 pm.

Wallet wrestle

Two goons wrestled a 22-year-old man to the ground on Avenue K, taking his wallet.

The suspects approached the victim near Kings Highway at 4:50 am.

“Give us what you got,” they demanded before attacking the victim.

Street brawl

A tenant in an E. 55th Street home wigged out against his landlord on Aug. 9, striking him with a fire extinguisher.

The two men were arguing inside the building at 6:45 pm when the suspect attacked, injuring the man’s foot with the fire extinguisher.

Cop hitter busted

A 23-year-old woman struck a cop during a furious exchange on Flatlands Avenue on Aug. 13.

The cops had been called on another matter near Kimball Street at 5:50 am when the young woman attacked, leaving the cop with a small cut.

Cellphone plucker

A thief swiped a cellphone from a 32-year-old woman on Avenue K on Aug. 8.

The victim was nearing Flatbush Avenue at 4:20 pm — talking on her cellphone — when the thief ran by and snagged it from her hands.

Bike theft

A goon swiped a Cannondale bicycle parked in front of a Ralph Avenue supermarket on Aug. 9.

The 60-year-old owner of the bike had left his bike in front of the supermarket at 12:30 pm. When he returned a few minutes later, it was gone.
