Punitive damages

An opportunist burglarized a woman’s Thames Street apartment on Nov. 4 — while she spent the day in jail, cops said.

The 30-year-old victim said she was arrested at her apartment between Bogart Street and Morgan Avenue on a warrant. When she returned home later that day, she found her property, including plane tickets to Wisconsin, a driver’s license, $850 in cash, a letter from her dad’s grandparents, housing documents, and credit card information, all missing.

The victim said she believes the culprit was her roommate.

X-ray special

Someone stole an X-ray machine and an instrumentarium from a Rutledge Avenue doctor’s office on Nov. 6, NYPD officials reported.

The office manager said she found the two expensive gadgets missing from the office between Bedford and Wythe avenues at noon.

She told police that at least 30 employees have access to the facility and that there was no one working there from when the instruments were last seen at 8:45 am on Oct. 15 until they turned up gone.

No right side of the street

A gang of four attacked a man and stole his cellphone on Broadway on Nov. 4, officers stated.

The 22-year-old victim said he was between Marcy Avenue and Rodney Street at 2:20 am when he saw the quarrelsome quartet across the street.

They descended on him, punching and kicking him in the head and face, and grabbed his phone and wallet, cops said. They all ran away except for one guy, who rode off on a bicycle, police reported.

Out of breath

A punk shoved a woman and stole her pocketbook on Humboldt Street on Nov. 4, causing her to have a panic attack, according to a report.

The 62-year-old victim said she was at Boerum Street at 1:10 pm when the fiend ran up behind her and threw her to the ground. He grabbed her pocketbook, which contained her credit card, cash and identification, and ran off, the authorities said.

Paramedics took the woman to Woodhull Medical Center, where she was treated and subsequently released, cops said.

Bushwick brawlers

Police arrested two teenagers after a fight with an older man in a Bushwick Avenue apartment on Nov. 4, per police.

During the 1:40 am fight inside the abode between Moore Street and Flushing Avenue, a 17-year-old beat a 16-year-old over the head with a metal pipe, and the younger teen beat a 36-year-old man with a large piece of wood, according to a report.

The 16-year-old had to go to Woodhall Medical Center to get 10 staples for his head wound, officials said. The teens were both charged with assault and the 17-year-old was also charged with weapons possession for the knife and a razor blade he had in his pockets, cops reported.
