62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Hammer time

A pair of hammer-swinging fiends attacked a man on 14th Avenue on March 5, police said.

The victim told police he was walking toward 86th Street from Benson Avenue around 11 pm when he got into an argument with the two men. It escalated into a life-or-death situation when one of the two brutes whipped out a hammer and whacked the victim across the head with it, according to authorities.

Soon after, the two fled in a gray sport utility vehicle. Emergency responders brought the victim to Maimonides Hospital.

Smelly sneaks

Two thieves pocketed some perfume from an 86th Street pharmacy on March 1, according to a police report.

The two stole multiple boxes of cologne from the drugstore between Bay 40th and Bay 41st streets around 7:30 pm — and once they had the goods they booked it down 86th Street towards Stillwell Avenue, police said.

Cash and bling

A cat burglar broke into a home on 66th Street on March 1, according to police.

The victim left his house between 19th and 20th avenues around 1 pm and returned about four hours later to find his front door wide open and his whole house flipped upside down, he told cops.

The intruder managed to break in through a rear security gate, according to police. The thief got away with jewelry and $10,000 in cash.

He did not get far

Some good-for-nothing stole a woman’s car parked on Cropsey Avenue on Feb. 27 — and crashed it, cops said.

The woman returned to her car parked between Bay 40th and Bay 41st Street around 11:30 pm but found it was nowhere to be seen, according to police. Police later found someone had crashed the car at Colonial Road and 92nd Street and then fled the scene.
