62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Gun-shaped bulge

A crook pulled the old fake gun in his pocket routine as he robbed a guy on 71st Street on April 23, taking $400.

The victim told police that he was near 16th Avenue at 9 pm when the thief approached with a gun-shaped bulge in his pocket.

“Give me everything you have,” the goon growled, before taking the victim’s cash and fleeing in a black Mercedes.

Two vs. one

Two thieves robbed a man on 68th Street on April 20, nabbing his wallet.

The victim told police that he was near 18th Avenue at 1:35 am when one of the crooks sauntered up to him and demanded his property.

That’s when the victim noticed another assailant behind him, felt an object being pressed against his back and, fearing it was a gun, handed over his wallet, which contained $40 and credit cards.

The crooks slapped the victim in the face, then fled.

Three-way beat down

Three thugs beat a man on W. Seventh Street on April 16, before taking his wallet full of cash.

The victim told police that he was between avenues T and U at 2:16 am when the trio sucker punched him, sending him to the pavement. The goons kicked the victim while he huddled on the ground as they took his wallet, which contained $346 and credit cards.

Garage gangster

A thief pillaged a 66th Street garage on April 23, taking his power drill.

The victim told police that he was returning to his house between 17th and 18th avenues at 10:55 pm, and was about to pull into his garage when he saw a strange man standing inside with a white shopping bag in his hand.

The unwarranted visitor fled, but the homeowner found that his $20 power drill was missing after giving his garage a once over.

Hallway hoodlum

A thug beat another man in the hallway of a Bay 37th Street apartment building on April 21.

The victim told police that he was in a hallway of his apartment building between the Shore Parkway and Cropsey Avenue at 5 am, when the goon began punching him in the face, causing him to lose a tooth.

Head bash

A goon bashed another guy with a blunt object inside of a Bath Avenue restaurant on April 18.

The victim told police that he was inside of the eatery between 18th Ave and Bay 19th Street at 12:40 pm, where he was engaged in an argument with the other man.

Eventually, the thug got fed up, grabbed an unknown object, and hit the victim once in the head with it.

Car crook

A thief stole a car parked on Benson Avenue on April 18.

The victim told police that he parked his car between Bay 38th Street and 25th Avenue at 7 pm, and returned a few hours later to find his car missing.
