68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Creep clobbers woman

A nogoodnik knocked down a woman and stole her bag on 77th Street on Feb. 23.

The punk came up behind his victim between Third and Fourth avenues in Bay Ridge at 6:10 am, put his hand over her mouth, and shoved her to the ground before ripping off her bag and fleeing, police said.

Officers canvassing the area recovered the stolen satchel, which contained a cellphone, but didn’t catch the crook, a police report states.

Knifepoint crookery

A ne’er-do-well robbed a Ft. Hamilton Parkway Internet cafe clerk at knifepoint on Feb. 28.

When the employee went to the bathroom in the cafe between 62nd and 63rd streets in Borough Park at noon, a guy followed him, put a knife to his neck, and demanded cash, police said. The worker complied, and the brute punched him in the face before making off with $800, a police report states.

Diner dashed

A sneak stole three computers and printers from a Third Avenue eatery on Feb. 22.

The burglar broke into the restaurant, located between 88th and 89th streets in Bay Ridge, through a side door at 11 pm, police said. The thief took three point-of-sale computer terminals and their printers — valued at $8,000, a police report states.

Investigators recovered burglar’s tools at the scene, officials noted.

Two-for-one burglar

A money-grubber grabbed $8,800 from two Bay Ridge Parkway apartments on Feb. 28.

The goon broke the rear door to the building between 13th and 14th avenues some time between 9 am and 2:20 pm, police said.

The burglar grabbed $7,800 from the first-floor apartment, then headed upstairs and copped another $1,000 from a dresser drawer, according to law enforcement sources.
