Handbag holdup

Police arrested two individuals on Haring Street who they say attempted and failed to steal a woman’s purse and the $475 dollars inside on July 31, police said.

The suspects flanked the 51-year-old victim just after 10 pm near Avenue Y and tried to remove a pink pocketbook from her shoulder, reported officials. But they fled when they failed to get the cash out, said police.

Watch wrangler

A thief sneaked into an E. 19th Street apartment on July 29 and made off with a designer watch.

The victim told authorities that someone opened the front door near Shore Parkway at 12:20 pm without doing any damage and removed the Ulysse Nardin timepiece, along with some other jewelry, from a jewelry box that was inside a filing cabinet in a bedroom closet. The victim was unsure if the front door had been locked or not, cops said.

Lingerie larceny

Thousands of dollars worth of expensive women’s undergarments were stolen from an E. 15th Street apartment on July 31.

The victim said she left her apartment near Shore Parkway and locked the front door, but returned at 7:05 am to find the door unlocked and closed, according to a police report.

Three bras, four pieces of underwear, and three bustiers were stolen from the victim’s bed, authorities reported. Nothing else in the house was touched, and police said there were no signs of forced entry.

Television thief

An unidentified individual nabbed a 55-inch television from an E. 15th Street house on July 31.

The crook gained access to the house near Avenue U at approximately 2 am through an open kitchen window before leaving through the front door with the Samsung big-screen TV.

Looted laptop

An Avenue P homeowner returned from an upstate New York trip on July 24 to find his house ransacked and his laptop stolen.

Police, who canvassed the home near E. Eighth Street at 8 am, said the screen from a side window had been removed and the window was left open. The perpetrator also cut telephone wires on the side of the house, according to the cops.
