Girly goons

Two knife-wielding dames mugged a woman on Fifth Avenue on Jan. 16.

The victim said she was near 84th Street at 4 pm when she was approached by the duo. One of them brandished a knife and pressed it to the victim’s throat before taking $515 from her and fleeing.

Construction crook

A thief robbed a construction site on 83rd Street on Jan. 20.

The victim told cops he left the job site between Colonial Road and Ridge Boulevard at 6 pm, and returned the next morning to find that the site’s front door was unlocked and more than $1,000 worth of power tools and construction equipment had been nabbed. The victim told police that multiple people had access to the key for the site.

Wallet diving

A goon pilfered a woman’s car on Fort Hamilton Parkway on Jan. 16.

The victim said she parked her car near 68th Street at around 11:30 pm and returned at 3:30 am to find her passenger-side window smashed and her wallet, which contained credit cards and a driver’s license, missing.

Register robbery

A crook stole cash from a business on Third Avenue on Jan. 16.

The owner said the thief forced his way through the front door of the business between 76th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway sometime after 11 pm, grabbing a cash register containing $280. The register itself was worth $500.
