62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Rain of bullets

Someone unleashed a volley of gunfire on McDonald Avenue on Oct. 29, per police.

Bullets flew on the avenue between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 8:23 pm, when a guy wearing a hoodie walked up to a 34-year-old man and shot him several times in the left hand, left leg, and left foot, cops said.

The victim was taken to Coney Island Hospital in stable condition, according to law enforcement officials.


A fiend is kicking down doors to break into homes in the 62nd Precinct, cops say. Here’s where he has hit:

• A burglar made a cavity in a Kings Highway dentist office’s front door when he pried it open to steal $400 on Oct. 31, the NYPD said.

The incident went down at 6:11 am at the office between W. Fourth and W. Fifth streets in Gravesend, a police report states.

• Someone broke the lock to a medical center just a few doors down on Kings Highway early on Nov. 1, cops said.

The burglar bashed his way into the urgent care center between W. Fourth and W. Fifth streets in Gravesend at 4 am, police said. It is not clear whether he stole anything, according to a report.

• Later that day, a crook bashed in an Avenue U apartment door and stole $2,000 in cash, electronics, and jewelry, police recounted.

The resident returned to her home between W. Sixth and W. Seventh streets in Gravesend at 6:30 pm to find the damage, officers stated.

The door handle was locked — but not the deadbolt — and the burglar cracked the door frame in forcing open the door, an account says.

Masquerade brawl

Masked bandits beat up and robbed a guy on Bay Ridge Avenue on Nov. 2, cops said.

The pair of punks demanded the victim’s wallet between 14th and 15th avenues in Bensonhurst, and when the victim refused, the pair started punching him in the face and stomach, police reported.

The man fell to the ground, and the villains grabbed his wallet and fled, according to the authorities.


Six bandits attacked two women and stole one of their phones and wallets on 86th Street on Nov. 1, law enforcement officials said.

The mixed-sex sextet descended upon the two victims in the street between Bay 35th Street and 24th Avenue in Gravesend at 4:40 am, police said.

The gang sliced one woman and gave the other a bruise to the face, a report states. The attackers jacked a cellphone and $300 from one of the women, according to law enforcement officials.
