68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Late-night larceny

A thief ransacking a woman’s 77th Street home in the early morning hours of Oct. 16 only managed to get $60 before the tenant scared him off.

The victim told police she was asleep in her abode between Third and Fourth avenues at around 3 am, when she heard a noise outside her bedroom. She found a man making his way out of her bathroom with cash in his hand, and chased him down her stairs and out the front door.


Someone broke into a home on Bay Ridge Parkway on Oct. 16, taking a huge load of electronics, jewelry, and cash.

The brazen burglar broke open the front door of the building between 12th and 13th avenues sometime between 8:40 am and 3:40 pm, according to a police report. The perp got away with two laptops, an iPad, numerous credit cards, jewelry, and $5,000 in cash.

Purse picker

A pickpocket stole a woman’s wallet right out of her purse while she was shopping at a department store on Fifth Avenue on Oct. 12.

The victim didn’t notice anything amiss while she shopped at the store between Bay Ridge and Ovington avenues, until around 1:30 pm, when she looked down and saw her purse was unzipped and her wallet nowhere to be found.
