Good Samaritan smackdown

Two goons beat a do-gooder when he tried to offer them help at White and Varet streets in the early morning hours of Nov. 27.

The victim was leaving his girlfriend’s house when he saw two guys who looked homeless and asked if they needed help, according to a police report.

The duo then began assaulting him, leaving him with an open wound to his left cheek, and ran off with his cellphone, cops said.

Tire job

A couple of crooks swiped the tires and rims off a guy’s motorcycle while it was parked on Penn Street on Nov. 27.

The victim told cops he watched video surveillance footage from a camera near where his motorcycle was parked between Marcy and Harrison avenues, and that he saw two guys remove the tires and rims off the vehicle at around 3:45 am.

The video shows a white minivan pull up and park directly in front of the victim’s vehicle before the two thieves swipe the tires, police said.

Playstation pillager

A rogue broke into a Ten Eyck Street apartment and made off with a bunch of pricey video game equipment on Nov. 28.

The victim told cops he woke up around 4 am by lights and noise in his apartment between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street and saw a guy in his living room. The victim shouted “Where’s my stuff?” and the rapscallion hoofed it through the front door carrying a book bag, authorities said.

The crook took a Sony Playstation, four controllers, and three games, cops said.

Shadowy sneak

A punk swiped a wad of cash and some other belongings from a woman’s Devoe Street apartment while she was sleeping on Nov. 24.

The bandit came into the woman’s unlocked apartment between Lorimer and Leonard streets while she was sleeping between 3 and 8:45 am and snatched $800 in cash, some credit cards, sets of keys, and her planner from her bedroom, according to a police report.

The woman told cops she woke up and saw a shadow crawling on her bedroom floor at some point, but did not think anything of it because she thought she was dreaming, authorities said.
