Strike three!

Police arrested a man who they say chased and repeatedly hit another man with a baseball bat multiple times on Surf Avenue on July 22.

The victim told cops the suspect chased him with the bat near Stillwell Avenue at 2:40 pm and repeatedly hit his body. Five minutes later, the victim said the suspect returned with two unapprehended cronies and chased him again with the bat, this time bashing him on the head.

Key to the crime

A man was arrested for hitting a teenager and stealing her keys on W. 29th Street on July 22.

The victim said the man hit her on the back of the head near Surf Avenue at 6:30 pm and took her keys from around her neck before fleeing the scene.

Too much TV

Police took a man into custody who they say lifted several televisions from a building on 59th Street on May 30.

Cops say the owner of the property near Bay Parkway saw the suspct, along with another man who has also been arrested, take several items from the building at 8:30 pm, including seven flat-screen TVs — without paying for them.

Both men are charged with grand larceny.
