62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Chained down

A thug beat a Bensonhurst man with a bike chain and stole his backpack on Benson Avenue on Aug. 29, according to cops.

The victim said he was near 14th Avenue at 11:30 pm when the goon demanded his cash. When the man refused, the jerk struck him repeatedly with the heavy shackle before pulling off his backpack, containing clothes and sneakers.

At his throat

A creep snuck up behind a Bensonhurst man at the corner of W. Third Street and mugged him on Aug. 30, cops say.

The victim said he was near Avenue O at 1:30 am when he felt an unknown object against his windpipe and heard a voice in his ear.

“Look back and I’ll f------ kill you,” the assailant said. “Now gimme your money.”

The man surrendered his neck chain, bracelet, and iPhone, and the goon took $50 in cash from the victim’s pocket before fleeing.

Breaking glass

Two jerks bashed a bottle over the head of a man on 72nd Street and 18th Avenue on Sept. 1, police say.

The victim reported he was near 18th Avenue at 2 am when the two perps — one of them on a bicycle — punched him in the face before smashing the glass container on his skull and fleeing.

Tired out

A jerk swiped the rims and tires from a car parked on Bay 37th Street sometime overnight on Aug. 31, cops say.

The victim told police he parked his car near Bath Avenue at 11 pm and came back the next morning to see his car on cinderblocks.

Apple grapple

A crook yanked a woman’s iPhone away on W. Sixth Street on Aug. 31, according to cops.

The woman said she was between Highlawn Avenue and Avenue S when the creep grabbed her gadget. After a brief struggle, the villain ran with the device toward the Kings Highway N train station at the corner of W. Seventh Street.
