No love shove

A nogoodnik shoved a man to the ground and lifted his wallet and iPhone during an unsavory encounter on Bergen Street on Nov. 24.

The victim said he was near Bond Street at 12:30 am when a punk approached him and bulldozed him to the ground. Before he had time to get up, the rogue took his belongings and fled, according to police.

Snoozing and losing

A thief took advantage of a snoozing subway rider when he nicked her wallet and made his escape at the Lawrence Street station on Nov. 26.

The victim told police she fell asleep on the Coney Island-bound N train at 4:35 am and when she woke up at the station near MetroTech, her phone was nowhere to be found. She spotted the sticky-fingered scoundrel at the train doors, but he managed to run into the station when the locomotive reached a stop and she was unable to match his lightning-quick pace.

Shotty business

Someone shot a man in the leg while he was out for a late-night walk on Myrtle Avenue on Nov. 25.

The unlucky pedestrian was near Flatbush Avenue at 11:10 pm when he heard gun shots ring out. The victim started running and hopped into a cab. But when he reached safety, he discovered he had been shot in his calf.

Bye dad

A thief stole a phone from a chatty traveller on Jay Street on Nov. 26.

The victim said he got off the train near York Street at 5:58 pm and was on the phone with his father when a sneak snatched his cell and fled.
