Car crooks

Two ballsy thieves kicked a woman out of her car, then stole it on Atlantic Avenue on Jan. 24.

The 51-year-old lady told cops she was sitting in a green Saab at 11 pm when two masked men opened the door.

“Stay, stay,” one of them ordered, but she jumped out of the car, which was parked near S. Oxford Street.

That’s when the thugs drove off with her ride, her cellphone and $60.

Kid crime

A group of hoodlums beat up a 12-year-old and robbed him of change on Washington Avenue on Jan. 24.

The kid told cops he was near Greene Avenue at 3:45 pm when four men approached him from behind. One of the ruffians demanded his money and, after he refused give it up, another man punched him in the gut and grabbed his cash.

The crooks only made off with $6.

Park tumble

A throng of thugs a roughed up a man in Fort Greene Park on Jan. 25.

The 30-year-old victim told cops he was out for a stroll, near Myrtle Avenue and Washington Park, just after 7 pm when a six men began to threaten him. One thug pushed him down a hill, started kicking him and demanded “everything he had.”

The jerks then snatched the park-goer’s cellphone and left him with a gash above his eye.

Cops say one of the same men — a 23-year-old — attacked another victim in the park 10 minutes later. Police arrested him that night.

Target trouble

There were two more thefts at the Target in the troubled Atlantic Terminal Mall last week:

• On Jan. 26, security guards told cops that a crook walked out of the store, which is on Atlantic Avenue near Flatbush Avenue, without paying for about $1,700 of fancy electronics.

• Four days later, a crook stole a pretty wallet from a shopper.

The 32-year-old victim told cops she put her wallet in the front pocket of her backpack at 2:30 pm. She soon noticed the pocket was unzipped and her purple, glittery wallet — which was filled with five credit cards — was missing.

Teen trash

Two teenage thugs attacked a man on S. Elliott Place on Jan. 27.

The 25-year-old victim told cops the violent jerks pushed him onto the sidewalk, near DeKalb Avenue, at 8 pm. Both ruffians punched him in the face and one snatched his empty messenger bag before running away.

Cops later arrested a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old.

iSnatch

A jerk swiped a fancy cellphone from a girl on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 29.

The 23-year-old woman told cops she was texting while walking to the bus, near St. Johns Place, at 5:30 pm. The jerk then snatched her iPhone and ran away.

Bad dream

A quick-moving thief snagged a woman’s bag of expensive stuff on the subway near Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 30.

The 28-year-old victim told cops she got on the train at around 1 am, then dozed off. When she woke up, near Fulton Street, she discovered her messenger bag, a laptop and cellphone were gone.
