62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Held up without a gun

Two goons mugged a man on 79th Street on Feb. 22 without pulling a gun, police report.

The victim said he was near 19th Avenue at 11 pm when the pair of punks jumped out of a parked car, grabbed him, and started searching his pockets. When the victim resisted, one of the fiends patted his back pocket.

“I got a Gat,” the villain said, despite not drawing any firearm.

The terrible twosome took $100 from the man’s coat pocket, and one scrambled back into the vehicle while the supposedly armed one fled into a nearby building.

Red, black, and blue

A thug smashed a man’s nose on Avenue P on Feb 22, according to cops.

The victim reported that he was hanging out near Quentin Road at 6 pm when the violent villain threatened him, and then punched him repeatedly in the face, breaking his snout and opening up a big gash over his eye — a wound that needed seven stitches.

Domestic dispute

A defensive husband and an accomplice battered a man on 86th Street on Feb. 22, police say.

The victim told cops that he had words with an unknown woman at 3:15 pm, and walked away. When he got to the corner of Bay 14th Street, a blunt object hit him on the skull from behind, and two brutes knocked him to the ground.

“You called my wife a c---!” One of the attackers yelled, kicking the victim in the face, police reported.

The assailants then fled toward 16th Avenue.

Murse snatcher

A crook swiped a man’s handbag on 17th Avenue on Feb. 20, cops claim.

The victim said he was between 87th and 88th streets at 11:05 pm when the lowlife ran up behind him and tore the manbag away.

Textbook crime

A fleet-footed fiend snatched a woman’s phone out of her hand while she was texting a friend on 86th Street on Feb. 23, authorities say.

The victim said she was sending a message to her friend while waiting for the bus near Bay Parkway at 12:40 am when the thief yanked the gadget from her hand and ran in the direction of Benson Avenue.
