Striking twice

A burglar hit two homes on the same E. 34th Street block on April 17 and 18.

The thief hit the first house on E. 34th Street near Avenue S around 1:50 am on April 17, breaking through the back door and grabbing $300 before fleeing, reports show.

The perp hit a second home the next day around 7 pm, this time slipping in through a side window and filtching an undisclosed sum of greenbacks, police sources said.

Smile for the cameras

Cops collared a burglar who they say was caught on tape breaking into a home on E. 48th Street on April 18.

The resident returned to his home between Avenue H and Glendwoood Road at 11 pm to find his door kicked in and his laptop missing. Police identified the perp through security camera footage and charged him with third-degree burglary. The perp is not a suspect in the E. 34th street burglaries mentioned above.


A mask-wearing thug robbed a Ralph Avenue pharmacy on April 19.

According to police, the man burst into the drug store near Avenue K around 4:30 am flashing a revolver and demanding cash. He made off with $50 in cash and a stash of cigarettes, law enforcement officials said.

The suspect is described as a black male standing 5-foot-8 and weighing 150 pounds.

Bus bullies

Three brutes bashed a dollar van rider on Utica Avenue on April 19 — and took his cash.

The victim told cops he was traveling in a southbound van Flatlands Avenue at 7 pm when three men got in the van and knocked him on the head before stealing $400. The victim refused medical attention, police said.

2-For-1 shots

A thug shot two men outside an Avenue H bar on April 20.

The victims were waiting in front of the watering hole near E. 45th Street around 11:30 pm when they became embroiled in an argument with another man over so-called “territory,” police said.

The argument escalated, and the gun goon whipped out the pistol — shooting one victim in the leg and the other in the arm. The pair received medical attention for their wounds, which were considered non-life-threatening.
