Robbed on delivery

A thief robbed a delivery man making a drop off inside an E. 18th Street building on Oct. 6.

The victim, who delivers for a Chinese restaurant, showed up at the building, located between Avenues T and U, at 10:40 pm when the suspect greeted him at the door and let him inside.

The thief followed his victim onto the elevator, where he punched him, brandished a knife, and robbed him of $140.

99-cent grab

A thug overpowered a worker in an Avenue U 99-cent store robbery on Oct. 8 — but ended up taking nothing.

Workers at Feng’s 99-Cents and Up near E. 28th Street said the thief came in at 8:50 am, shoved the cashier side and vaulted over the counter.

The thief tried to force open the cash register, but couldn’t crack it, and fled in a black-colored vehicle.

Window creep

A thief broke into an Avenue T apartment on Oct. 6, taking more than $6,000 in jewelry.

The 64-year-old tenant of the home between Ocean Parkway and E. Seventh Street left her home at 5:30 pm. When she returned just two and a half hours later, she realized that her fire escape window was open and damaged.

Business break-in

A thief broke into a Coney Island Avenue business on Sept. 30, removing some electronic equipment and a postal scale.

Workers at Utili Save between Avenue P and Quentin Road said the thief forced the side door around 4:45 pm, although the crime wasn’t reported for almost a week.

Homecrest hijinks

A villain broke into a Homecrest Avenue home on Oct. 4, swiping more than $300 from the homeowner’s purse.

The thief crept in through an unlocked side door at 4:15 am, found the purse, and rifled through it, the 46-year-old victim told police.

Car raid

A thief broke into a car parked on E. 28th Street on Oct. 8 — looting the cabin.

The owner parked the vehicle, a 2010 Mazda, between Avenue P and Quentin Avenue sometime between 8 and 10 pm, but left it unlocked. The thief opened a door and removed a navigation system.

iPhone swipe

A thief snagged an iPhone from a table in an Ocean Parkway playground on Sept. 27 while its owner played a game of hoops.

The victim told police that he was in the playground between Avenues S and T, which is part of the Sephardic Community Center, at 8 pm when his pricey Smartphone was pinched.

Driveway devil

A crook broke into a 2010 Nissan Altima on Ocean Parkway on Oct. 5 — as the vehicle sat in its owner’s driveway!

The 59-year-old victim parked her car at 9:45 pm. When she went to retrieve it, she noticed that someone had forced the door and removed an iPod and a navigation system.
