62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Charged for charger

A brute beat a woman over the head and stole her cellphone charger on Bay 37th Street on Oct. 20, according to NYPD officials.

The woman was walking between 86th Street and Benson Avenue in Gravesend at 10:30 pm when the galoot ran up behind her, struck her in the back of the head, and snatched the charger from her pocket, police said.

A cut below the rest

Two fiends slashed a 63-year-old’s arm while trying to rob him at the corner of Bay Seventh Street and Cropsey Avenue in Bath Beach on Oct. 15, per police.

One of the toughs held the man while the other went through his pockets at 8:30 am, police said. In the scuffle, one attacker cut the man’s right arm with a box-cutter, a report states.

Potty break-in

Someone broke into a W. 10th Street man’s car in the time it took him to go to the bathroom on Oct. 17, cops said.

The victim left his vehicle outside his home between Avenue P and Quentin Road in Gravesend to use the can at 5 am, a report states.

When he returned to his car minutes later, he found that someone had broken his window and stolen his wallet and cellphone, police said.

Home invaders foiled

Two hooded home invaders got spooked when they realized the Avenue P apartment they were breaking into on Oct. 17 was occupied, according to a police report.

The resident said two prowlers tried to climb through a rear window in the apartment between W. Fifth and W. Sixth streets in Gravesend at 10:30 am. But the would-be burglars fled when they saw the resident was home, police said.

Close call

An 87-year-old W. Eighth Street man came home to find a ransacked apartment and three teens making off with his cash and jewelry on Oct. 17, officers recounted.

The man left his home between Bay Parkway and Avenue O in Gravesend to go to the store, leaving his back window open, police said. When he returned at noon, he saw the trio of delinquents scrambling out of the window, police said.

The thieves took $100, credit cards, and jewelry, a report states.
