Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Pushover

A lowlife shoved a woman to the ground and stole her cellphone on 71st Street on July 2, according to cops.

The victim reported that she was near New Utrecht Avenue at 7:50 am on her way home when the savage ran up behind her and threw her to the ground.

The brute yanked her mobile device from her hand and fled.

Bad biker

A knife-wielding cyclist mugged a man on 86th Street on June 30, police report.

The victim told cops he was near 20th Avenue at 11:55 pm when the thug on wheels rolled up and punched him in the face, then displayed the blade in his waistband. The fiend then seized the man’s iPhone and pedaled off.

Pub drubbing

Two goons robbed a man inside an Avenue U watering hole on July 3, authorities allege.

The victim said he was drinking at the bar near the corner of W. Seventh Street at 3 am when two unfamiliar brutes bashed him on the back of the braincase and took $40 in cash and a cellphone from his pocket.

Nose goes

A savage smashed a man’s snout and stole his cellphone on 71st Street on July 4, police state.

The victim said he was walking between 18th and 19th avenues at 4 am when the goon came up and punched him in the face, breaking his nose.

The vicious villain then took the man’s phone as the victim nursed his shattered schnozz.

Cool criminal

A hot-headed devil stole an air conditioner from a Bay 34th Street apartment on July 4, cops say.

The victim said when he returned to his home between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at 6 pm from holiday festivities, he discovered his door was ajar and his cooling unit stolen.
