60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Brute canal

A wannabe tough hit a 68-year-old man on W. Third Street on March 25 so hard that he knocked the oldster’s teeth out.

The victim was waiting for his grandson to get out of school between Surf and Mermaid avenues in Coney Island at 2:25 pm when the brutish stranger clocked him, sending his chompers flying and leaving him with a bruised eye, police said.

Paramedics took the man to Lutheran Medical Center for treatment, a police report states.

Sour deal

A teenage terror took a youngster’s candy in a W. 23rd Street apartment building on March 29.

The 12-year-old victim was selling candy door-to-door in a building between Surf and Mermaid avenues in Coney Island at 4:45 pm when the pubescent punk wrested away the kid’s sweets and $17, police said.

Old and in the fray

A maniac in his 60s attacked a teen with a pair of pliers on Brighton Third Street on March 28.

The wacko attacked the 17-year-old stranger between Brighton Beach Avenue and Brightwater Court in Brighton Beach at 9:05 am, cutting the kid’s right eyebrow, police said.

Pickpocket pinched

Police arrested a guy who they said stole a straphanger’s phone after the victim awoke to someone going through his pockets at the Stillwell Avenue station in Coney Island on March 29.

The victim was asleep on a train at 5:40 am when the suspect started prying a phone from his front pocket, cops said. But when he tried to slip a wallet from the guy’s back pocket, the metro-riding Rip Van Winkle jolted out of slumber, police said.

The suspect fled, but cops caught up to him and found the victim’s phone in his jacket, a police report states.
