Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
A gun-wielding goon robbed two Bay Ridge residents in a week. Here’s the rundown:
• The first incident went down at the corner of 99th Street on Jan. 3.
The victim was about to walk into his apartment building near Shore Road at 9 pm when a fiend flashed a black handgun and demanded cash, police said. The triggerman took $200 without hurting the victim, a report states.
• The same galoot stole $10 from a guy at gunpoint near 92nd Street on Jan. 10, law enforcement officials said.
The victim was leaving a bank near Third Avenue at 5:13 am when the bandit whipped out his pistol and took the cash, again without hurting the victim, police said.
A cat burglar cut through a window guard and broke into a 71st Street home in Bay Ridge on Jan. 5, according to a report.
The victim returned to the home near Sixth Avenue at 12:30 pm and found that a prowler had cut the bars on a backyard window, ransacked the pad, and made off with cash and jewelry, police said.
A thief stole a laptop, cellphone, and backpack from a delivery truck parked at 68th Street in Bay Ridge on Jan. 7, officers said.
The driver parked his ride near Fourth Avenue at 2:05 pm and stepped inside a restaurant to grab a bite, but when he came back, he realized a crook had snuck into the truck and taken his stuff, police said.
A brute kicked in a guy’s front door and stole electronics from his home near 72nd Street in Bay Ridge on Jan. 8, according to the authorities.
The victim returned to the home near Sixth Avenue at 11:30 pm to find that someone had busted his door and taken his electronics, officers said.
