61st Precinct

Sheepshead Bay—Homecrest— Manhattan Beach—Gravesend

Struck in the head

A goon struck a guy in the head and stole his wallet on E. 18th Street on June 20, police said.

The 60-year-old man told police he was walking home after midnight near Avenue T when the marauder came up to him from behind and yelled “Give me your money!”

The villain then struck the victim in the head with an unknown object, causing a gash, according to authorities. The robber grabbed the guy’s wallet — with money, his driver’s license, debit card, food stamp card, and Social Security card inside — from his back pocket, police said. Emergency responders transported the victim to Maimonides Hospital.

Alias robber

Two 17-year-old punks pushed a guy to the ground and swiped his cash on Avenue V on June 20, police said.

The victim told police he was near E. 17th Street at 8:15 pm when the two robbers approached, pushed him to the ground, and then held him down.

The teens grabbed $85 from the guy’s pocket and one of the bandits, using the fake name “Simon,” said, “Gimme your stuff if you don’t wanna get hurt,” police said. The brigands then fled, according to authorities.

Fake out

A robber threatened a teen and stole his money on Nostrand Avenue on June 21, police said.

The 19-year-old victim told police he was near Avenue V at noon when the brigand came up to him and said he needed bread. The teen told him he only had a dollar, but when he pulled out $13 from his pocket, the jerk said “Why are you lying to me?”

The teen said he needed that money to buy a MetroCard, but the bandit demanded all of the money and threatened him, saying his brother was across the street and would stop him if he tried to run away, according to authorities.

The teen got scared and handed over the money, police said.

Couldn’t reach

A would-be burglar tried to break into a guy’s house on E. 17th Street on June 21, police said.

The victim told police the baddie tried to enter his apartment near Avenue R at 7:20 am through a back window, but the crook couldn’t get in because the window was too high.

Big raid

A looter broke into a woman’s home on Avenue V on June 21 and stole diamond jewelry and private papers, according to authorities.

The woman told police she had left her home near W. Seventh Street at 10 am and when she returned home a little after noon, noticed someone had broken into her bedroom by pushing in the window air conditioning unit.

The woman’s room was ransacked and her safety deposit box containing assorted diamonds, passports, birth certificates, naturalization papers, and deeds was gone from its place in the closet, according to authorities.

Not a hotel

An intruder broke into a woman’s Norfolk Street on June 26 home looking for a place to stay, police said.

The victim told police video footage showed the trespasser inside her child’s room in the house near Shore Boulevard at 3:30 pm. She confronted the housebreaker, asking why she was there.

She told the victim, “I am sorry, and I needed a place to stay for the night,” according to authorities.

But the victim told the woman to leave and she left without taking anything, police said.
