Purse snatched

A big lug ripped a purse from a woman’s shoulder on 66th Street on Jan. 6, cops said.

The victim was near 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst at 12:30 am when the brute tore the purse off her and took off down 18th Avenue toward 67th Street, according to a police report.

Window job

A sneaky thief stole jewelry from a Bay Parkway apartment on Jan. 8, the authorities reported.

The resident returned to the apartment between W. Ninth and W. 10th streets in Bensonhurst at 9:45 am and found the front door ajar, police said.

After taking a look around, the tenant realized someone had climbed through a bedroom window, even though the fire escape didn’t reach the window the thief apparently used, a police report states.

Door prize

A burglar busted the front door to a Bay Ridge Avenue apartment and stole $1,000 cash from inside on Jan. 8, per the NYPD.

The victim returned to the home between 20th and 21st avenues in Bensonhurst at 7:30 am and saw someone had broken the lock to the front door, officers said.
