68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Smash and grab

A brute bonked a guy on the head and stole his bag in the 77th Street R train station in Bay Ridge on Sept. 29.

The good-for-nothing clobbered his victim on the back of the head with a blunt object at 5:30 am and took the guy’s bag as he lay on the ground, police said.

Burglar alarm

A home-invader got spooked when he woke up his would-be victim in a 72nd Street apartment on Sept. 28.

The noisy nogoodnik busted open a front door between Ninth and 10th Avenues in Dyker Heights at 10 am, but the commotion awoke a guy sleeping in the house, police said. When the bombastic burglar saw the resident, he ran, a police report states.

Pipe pincher

Someone stole $690 in metal pipes and extension cords from a construction site on 71st Street sometime between Sept. 30 and Oct. 4.

Police aren’t sure how he got into the home between Eighth and Ninth avenues in Dyker Heights between noon on Sept. 30 and 10:15 am four days later, officials said.


A brazen burglar broke in a 65th Street front door in broad daylight on Oct. 2.

The guy got into the home between 13th and 14th avenues in Dyker Heights sometime between noon and 8 pm, police said. He stole $4,000 cash and an estimated $1,500 in jewelry, a police report states.


A huckster conned a woman out of $1,200 on the corner of 85th Street and Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge on Sept. 28.

The shyster trimmed his mark at 10 am, telling her he found $70,000 and he’d give it to her if she handed him $1,200, police said.

The woman went to a cash machine, gave the guy the dough, and never heard from him again, law enforcement sources said.
