68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Cell store stickup

Three gun-toting goons robbed a cellphone store that apparently had nothing in stock on 13th Avenue on Nov. 11.

The trio burst into the store at the corner of 70th Street in Dyker Heights at 7:10 pm, police said. One man flashed a black handgun and yelled “Get back or I’ll shoot,” according to a police report.

The robbers demanded phones, but the clerk told them the store didn’t have any, so the trio took $100 cash and fled, police said.

Big haul

Two guys broke into a 73rd Street home and stole $55,400 on Nov. 13.

A witness saw two men enter the basement between Eighth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway in Bay Ridge at 3 pm, a police report states.

Once inside the basement, the pair ransacked the room and took $400 from a dresser, police said. Then the burglars broke into an apartment above, tore the place apart, and made off with another $55,000, according to law enforcement sources.

Cheap shots

Three brutes blindsided a man on the corner of 62nd Street and 10th Avenue in Dyker Heights and stole his phone, wallet, and $50 on Nov 11.

The stooges ran up behind their 35-year-old victim at 10 pm and smacked him upside the head before stealing his stuff, police said. The total stolen was worth $1,100, a police report states.

Pedestrian pummeled

Four fiends beat up and robbed a guy on the corner of Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge on Nov. 16.

The victim was near Senator Street at 2:35 am when the foursome came up behind him, pushed him to the ground, and kicked the guy before taking his cellphone and headphones, valued at $580, police said.
