Ridge stick-up

Two toughs with a gun robbed a teacher at the corner of Ridge Boulevard on June 20.

The educator was near 71st Street in Bay Ridge at 1:30 am when the pair pulled out a black handgun and took the woman’s purse, which contained a cash, glasses, a MetroCard, and a teacher’s license, a police report states.

The pirates were both about 6 feet and 180 pounds, and they fled in a 2007 Hyundai Accent, officials said.

Tips copped

A brute bashed open the door to a Fourth Avenue restaurant and stole cash from the store’s till and tip jar sometime between June 16 and June 17.

The burglar jimmied open a back door to the eatery between 100th and 101st streets sometime between 10:30 am and 11:08 am the next day and stole $600, a police report states.

Mean mugger

A monster clad in black ripped the purse from a 77-year-old woman’s shoulder as she waited for a car service on 79th Street on June 20.

The woman was waiting between Shore Road and Narrows Avenue in Bay Ridge at 9:20 am when the snatcher struck, police said.

He escaped on 79th street toward Narrows Avenue with the purse, which contained $300, a camera, and jewelry valued at a total $1,650, officials said.

Recycle gone wrong

A dingbat in a minivan winged a glass bottle at a bicyclist’s head on 85th Street on June 20.

The cyclist was near Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge at 4:40 pm when the dummy shouted something to get the cyclist’s attention, and then chucked the bottle, cutting the victim’s face, police said.

The goon fled in a light blue minivan, police said. Cops describe the suspect as an 18-year-old male standing 5-foot-6, with short brown hair and a medium complexion.

Gym jam

A rat stole a Fourth Avenue gym-goers stuff from his locker on June 16.

The victim locked his stuff in a compartment at the gym between 92nd and 94th streets in Bay Ridge at 7:50 pm, but when he returned after his workout, the locker was open and his stuff was gone, police said.

The thief took clothes, keys, a MetroCard, and a Honduran passport, a police report states.
