Bay Ridge–Dyker Heights
A burglar hit three Ovington Avenue apartments on April 24, making off with thousands in loot, police report.
One victim said he took off from his pad between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 8 am — leaving one of his windows open. He returned at 3:20 pm to find his iPad, bankbook, cell phone, watch, and an unspecified piece of jewelry missing.
Another resident of the same building told cops he left home at 4 pm and returned at 4:10 am the following morning to discover his iPad plus $100 in cash gone from his bedroom. The victim said his windows had no locks.
A tenant of the building next door said she departed at 7:50 am without locking her fire escape window. She returned at 9:30 pm to find the sash up, and two pricey cameras and her iPhone Touch gone.
A lowlife held up the employee of a Fort Hamilton Parkway pizzeria after he closed out the register on April 21, cops say.
The victim said he got into his car on 71st Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 11:30 pm with the day’s money inside his messenger bag. The crook then came up to the driver’s window and stuck a gun in his face.
“Give me your bag or I’m gonna blow your head off!” the fiend ordered, before striking the victim across the face. The thief grabbed the satchel — which contained the victim’s iPad and iPhone charger on top of the $1000 from the restaurant.
The villain then fled toward Eighth Avenue.
