62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Ding-dong, duck!

A thug mugged a man after ringing his front doorbell on Bay Parkway on Sept. 12, cops report.

The victim said he answered the chime at his apartment between 86th and 87th streets at 3:15 pm, and opened the door to see an unfamiliar face. But he didn’t see him long — the goon punched him repeatedly in the face, then took $800 in cash and a cellphone from the victim’s pockets and fled.


A pair of heartless punks beat a Bensonhurst woman with a cane and stole her iPhone on New Utrecht Avenue on Sept. 14, police say.

The woman said he was near 72nd Street at 3:50 pm when one of the perps came up and started hitting her with the walking stick. The attacker then held her back as his partner took her mobile device.

Screwed over

Four goons hijacked a Bensonhurst driver’s car on Kings Highway using a screwdriver on Sept. 15, police report.

The victim said he was stopped at a light near W. Ninth Street at 4:30 am when the gang jumped inside. The thug in the front seat pressed the screwdriver into the driver’s stomach and ordered him to drive to Coney Island Avenue and Avenue J.

There was a struggle at the corner of W. Fourth Street and Kings Highway as the driver grabbed the screwdriver, and the villain riding shotgun punched the driver repeatedly in the face and bit the man’s hand. The group jumped out and fled at the corner of W. Fourth Street and Quentin Road, grabbing the man’s iPhone as they left. Police have recovered the handtool.

No party of five

Five thugs cut up a Bensonhurst man outside of his home on Bay 20th Street on Sept. 17, according to cops.

The man said he heard a noise outside his house between Cropsey Avenue and Shore Parkway at 10:50 pm and went outside to investigate. The gang of thugs approached him and took a knife from the trunk of their car and sliced open his right arm.

Under no conditions

A burglar broke into a 64th Street apartment by pushing the air conditioner in, then made off with $1,700 in cash and electronics on Sept. 11, according to police.

The victim reported that she returned to her home between 21st and 22nd streets from work at 4:50 pm and saw her air conditioner lying broken on the floor and her back door wide open — and her money and gadgets gone. A neighbor reported hearing a loud noise coming from the apartment at 3 pm.
