62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Youngster slashed

A goon knifed a 14-year-old on the corner of 19th Avenue and 77th Street in Bensonhurst on May 19.

The two were embroiled in an argument at 6:30 pm when the wacko whipped out a blade and cut the kid’s finger, police said. The slasher took off down 19th Avenue toward 78th Street, a police report states.

Frisky business

A woman posing as a cop robbed a guy on New Utrecht Avenue on May 25.

The faux patrol woman stopped a guy near 65th Street in Bensonhurst at 10:30 am, flashed a badge and radio, and told him to go into a nearby apartment building, police said.

Once inside, the phony officer showed the guy a handgun in her purse and then took $400, officials said. Then the faker got into a cab and rode to Bay 20th Street and Cropsey Avenue in Bath Beach, a police report states.

Trigger warning

A brute tried to take a woman’s purse on Quentin Road and pointed a gun at her head when she tried to fight back on May 20.

The woman was between W. First and W. Second streets in Gravesend at 5:50 pm when the cretin grabbed her handbag, police said. The woman wrestled over the purse, so the punk pushed her to the ground and pointed a pistol at her, officials said.

A witness tried to intervene, but the gunman trained his aim on that guy, too, so the would-be good Samaritan backed down, a police report states. The thief fled the scene with $400 and the woman’s credit cards, police said.

Deli stickup

A tough guy with a gun robbed a 20th Avenue deli on May 20.

The revolver-wielding wretch rushed into the store between 65th and 66th streets in Bensonhurst at 9:45 pm, waving his gun and saying “Where’s the f------ cash?” a police report states. The clerk forked over $700, then the thief locked him in a bathroom and fled, police said.

Sticky fingers

A trickster burglarized a Bay Ridge Parkway man’s house and then glued his locks shut on May 22.

The resident returned to his pad between 19th and 20th avenues in Bensonhurst at 11 am, but he couldn’t get the front door open, because someone glutted the lock with epoxy, police said.

He climbed through a rear window and found that his house was ransacked and missing $500, police said. Investigators believe the theif snuck in through the same side window before tampering with the lock, a police report states.
