78th Precinct

Park Slope

Face wound

Cops arrested a 22-year-old man who they say beat up another man on Third Street on Sept. 15.

The victim told cops he was near Eighth Street at 1:46 am when a man grabbed his cellphone, then whacked him in the face, leaving him with a bloody gash.

Sea ya!

A crook snatched some jewelry and scuba gear from a car parked on Flatbush Avenue on Sept. 10.

The 54-year-old victim told police she left her gray Ford near Prospect Park Zoo at 11 am, then came back the next day and discovered her diamond earrings, a laptop, and camera gone. The heartless bandit even swiped snorkeling equipment.

Sad shopper

A jerk jacked some cash and electronics from a car on Warren Street on Sept. 11.

The 24-year-old victim told cops she parked her gray 2012 Hyundai near Fourth Avenue at 3 pm then went shopping at Beacon’s Closet. She came back three hours later and noticed the window busted — and her iPad, passport, and $200 missing.

Pretty Lowe

A perp stole some knives from a car on Second Avenue on Sept. 11.

The 39-year-old victim told cops he parked his white Chevy van in a Lowe’s parking lot near 10th Street, went shopping for 10 minutes, then drove to work in Manhattan. That’s when he discovered his sheetrock knives, a laptop, and cordless saw gone.

Toyota taken

A perp stole a car parked on Fourth Avenue sometime between Sept. 9 and 15.

The 49-year-old victim told cops she parked her red 2007 Toyota near Fifth Avenue at 5 pm, then came back six days later and found her trusty ride missing — with no sign of broken glass.

Gucci gone

Cops arrested a 29-year-old woman who they say swiped a wallet from a shopper on 12th Street on Sept. 13.

The 32-year-old victim told cops he set his Gucci wallet on a credit card swiper at Pathmark near Hamilton Place at 8 pm, then came back 10 minutes later and discovered it gone.
