68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bus-t up

Cops collared four people on 92nd Street for allegedly brawling aboard the S53 bus on Feb. 15.

An argument broke out between a lady in custody and three guys aboard the transport from Staten Island at 4:38 am, police said. The woman drew a blade and slashed the face of one of the guys and the trio began kicking and punching her in retaliation, authorities stated.

When the bus stopped between Fifth and Sixth avenues, the threesome reportedly dragged the gal out onto the street and continued beating her until the law pulled up and slapped the cuffs on all of them, cops said.

Who stole the console?

Police picked up a man who they say swiped the tech-laden center console of a Mercedes-Benz on 73rd Street on Feb. 15.

The vehicle’s owner said she parked her car between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue at 9 am, and returned at 1:30 pm to discover the console — containing the stereo and navigation systems — gone, cops said.

Authorities arrested a suspect, who they say is a serial offender, two days later.

Jacked pot

A pickpocket pocketed a man’s cellphone while the victim was scratching off a lotto ticket inside a Fourth Avenue bodega on Feb. 12, according to cops.

The victim said he was scraping away to discover if he had won a prize inside the store at the corner of 69th Street at 9:50 pm, when the crook sidled up. The sneak thief slid his hand into the victim’s pocket and pulled out his phone, then scrammed out the door before the victim could stop him, police said.

Bar none

Crooks looted a 73rd Street apartment of $2,500 after removing the burglar bars from its windows on Feb.10, police reported.

The victim told cops he left his first floor home between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue at 9 am and returned at 8:45 pm to find the window guards gone and his cash stash missing.
