62 Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach–Gravesend

With friends like these…

A father-and-son team laid into two teens with a baseball bat and a bike lock on Bay Parkway near Benson Avenue in Bath Beach on July 14, cops stated.

The 19- and 44-year-old tag team beat on the 15- and 18-year-old victims hard enough to leave cuts and bruises during the 4:10 pm foray, police said. The victims, listed in the report as the aggressors’ “friends,” were taken to Lutheran Medical Center, a report states.

Laying brick

Police arrested two men after one allegedly smacked another in the face with a brick when a dispute on W. Sixth Street took a nasty turn on July 12.

The pair got into it on the street between Avenues U and T in Gravesend at 10:07 pm that Saturday night, and when one man threw a brick, the second bit back, gnawing on the block-flinger’s finger, officers said.

Truly shocking

A prowler stole $30,000 worth of copper wire from a generator that served a nursing home on Cropsey Avenue on July 13.

The thief showed up at the home between Bayview Place and 24th Avenue at 5:30 pm, stole the wires, and bolted, according to cops.

Dinner on your dime

An apparently famished fraudster stole a Quentin Road woman’s identity and racked up $1,325.11 in charges on the online food-ordering service GrubHub between March 4 and July 7, officers stated. The woman, who lives near W. Fifth Street, said she had not lost the debit card the scoundrel used to pay for the meals.

Front-door shenanigans

Burglars broke through the front doors of three Bath Beach residences on July 10, according to reports.

• The first incident went down at 8:15 am on Cropsey Avenue near Bay 26th Street, when an unknown burglar busted down the front door and stole jewelry and a purse, police said.

• Later that day, at 2:30 pm, a burglar broke the lock on the front door of a home on Bay 26th Street near Bath Avenue, removing $1,000 in cash, an NYPD report says.

• At 6:30 pm, a bandit had a brush with a victim when two people coming home to their apartment at 21st Avenue between Benson and Bath avenues saw a shady character leaving the building with a duffel bag and a glove on one hand, according to law enforcement officials. The victim said she noticed that her tablet computer had vanished from her apartment just after the lowlife left.
