Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
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.
