68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Welcome home

A brute attacked a man while the victim was trying to get inside his 70th Street house on May 15, according to a police report.

The victim was reaching for his house keys to open the door of his home near Fort Hamilton Parkway at 11:40 pm when the perp approached him from behind, pinned him up against the door, and forcibly took his wallet from his right rear pocket, police reported. The jerk then fled toward Hamilton Parkway, authorities said.

The victim said a man approached him and offered him marijuana, which he refused, less than an hour earlier at a nearby store. But he is unsure if the perp is the same person, the police report said.

Big steal

Two louts ambushed a woman at gunpoint and stole her designer handbag on Ridge Boulevard in the early morning hours of May 21, a police report said.

The woman was near Wakeman Place at 1:45 am when the perps approached her, police said. The first ruffian approached and showed her a black gun, and the second guy came up from behind and took her bag, which contained a designer wallet, her cellphone, $7,000, three credit cards, a debit card, and a driver’s license, police said.

The creeps made her fall down and injure her rear end, police said.

Ladies’ night

Police cuffed a woman who they say stole another woman’s bag and personal belongings at a bar on Fourth Avenue, according to a police report.

The victim was with her brother at the bar near 101st Street at 2:40 am when the suspect took her stuff, police reported. The victim and her brother said they saw the accused steal the property, which included a driver’s license, $80, keys, and a debit card, according to the police report.
