62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

$46 grab

Cops say a goon pulled a gun on a teen on 17th Avenue on Nov. 12 — but didn’t get far with his ill-gotten gains.

The victim says he was near 86th Street at 10:14 pm when the 19-year-old suspect approached, flashed his weapon and demanded his victim’s cash.

Cops caught up with the goon a short time later, charging him with robbery.

Jean jack

Cops arrested a 47-year-old man who they say swiped three pairs of jeans from the Kohl’s on Bay Parkway.

Workers at the store near Shore Parkway said that the thief entered at 4:10 pm, picked up the jeans, but was grabbed by security after he tried to walk out of the store without paying for them.

Laptop taken

Cops say a thief took a laptop computer from a Benson Avenue home on Nov. 6 — then ensured his capture by telling his victim what he had done.

Police said that the 32-year-old forced his way into the apartment near 19th Avenue at 12:30 am, then called the victim a few days later to tell him that he had taken the computer and wasn’t going to return it.

Left hospitalized

Cops say a goon attacked another man with a heavy metal object during a Nov. 13 argument on McDonald Avenue — leaving his victim hospitalized with a deep gash to his head.

The two men were arguing near Billings Place when the 2:50 pm attack took place.

Cops said a 20-year-old man was arrested and charged with assault a short time later.

Gunning for trouble

Police arrested a 25-year-old who they say was walking along Bay 16th Street with a gun in his pocket on Nov. 10.

Cops were patrolling between Cropsey Avenue and Shore Parkway at 10:44 pm when they say they saw the suspect toss a gun as they approached.

Police stopped and frisked the suspect, finding a loaded magazine to the discarded gun in his pocket.
