68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

My hero!

Cops arrested an alleged purse-snatcher on Third Avenue on Oct. 11 after a good Samaritan restrained the suspect.

The victim was between 91st and 92nd streets in Bay Ridge at 7:48 am when a man threw her to the ground and shouted “Where’s your money? Gimme your money,” according to a police report.

Police allege the suspect was yanking on the woman’s purse when a hero happened by and pinned him until cops arrived to arrest him. In his defense, the accused told police the woman “just fell,” a police report states.

Gun and run

A reprobate with a revolver tried to rob a guy on 64th street on Oct. 6, but the victim ran.

The victim was near Ninth Avenue in Dyker Heights at 1 am when the gun-toting goon perched between two parked cars whipped out a six-shooter and said “Gimme, gimme,” according to a police report. The victim simply ran, police said.

Intruder alert

A 97th Street home security system spooked a burglar on Oct. 6.

The intruder broke a side door to the home between Shore Road and Marine Avenue in Bay Ridge at 4:43 pm, but that sounded an alarm, so he ran, police said.

Smash and grab

A brute bashed in a Bay Ridge Parkway front door and stole cash and jewelry on Oct. 5.

The cretin crushed the door between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue in Dyker Heights at 2:15 pm and took $6,000 cash and two gold necklaces worth an estimated $6,200 from a bedroom lock box, police said.

Hammer jacked

A tool stole construction equipment from a Senator Street basement on Oct. 5.

The punk pushed in a window between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Bay Ridge at 3:30 am and took a jackhammer, jig saw, hammer set, and nail gun, police said.
