60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate


Two gun-wielding men raped a woman inside the stairwell of a W. 31st Street apartment building on Dec. 27, police reported.

The victim told police that she was heading out for a smoke from her apartment between Mermaid and Surf avenues at 8:30 pm when the men ambushed her in the stairwell. One of the vile reprobates held a gun to the victim’s head, while his sick accomplice ripped the clothes from her body, cops said.

The degenerates then took turns raping the woman, before leaving together down the stairwell, according to police.

Brotherly love

Cops busted a 35-year-old man who they say groped and attempted to rape his brother’s 20-year-old girlfriend as she slept inside their Haryway Avenue apartment on Jan. 23.

The victim told police that she was asleep with her boyfriend inside the apartment between Bay 44th Street and 27th Avenue at 7:10 am when the guy’s brother snuck into their bedroom and started undressing her.

The suspect had taken off her pants and pulled her panties down when the woman awoke to him trying to force himself on her, police said. That’s when she screamed, at which point her boyfriend woke up, and the brother “retreated to the living room,” according to police.

Geriatric attack

A purse-snatcher robbed an 81-year-old woman inside Asser Levy park on Jan. 18, taking $60 and her Medicaid card.

The victim told police that she was inside the park near Sea Breeze Court at 6 pm when the thief grabbed her handbag, which was hanging from her right arm, and dragged her across the ground as she clung to it.

Eventually, the poor lady was overcome by her younger attacker, and she let go of her purse, along with the valuables it contained, cops said.

Baby teeth

A two merciless punks brutally beat and robbed a 12-year-old girl on Mermaid Avenue on Jan. 18.

The tween girl told police that she was near W. 22nd Street at 7 pm when she started arguing with one of her attackers. The next thing she knew, one of the brutes punched her in the mouth, knocking loose one of her teeth, and sending the poor girl plummeting to the pavement.

That’s when the other delinquint took his turn, and kicked her in the face, before grabbing her phone and fleeing, cops said.


A thieving scoundrel ripped a bag from a lady’s arm on Brighton Fourth Street on Jan. 20.

The victim told police that she was between Neptune and Ocean View avenues at 12:12 pm when the crook hurled her to the floor and snagged her purse, which contained $45 and credit cards.

Gunpoint goons

Two teenage good-for-nothings robbed a 15-year-old boy at gunpoint in broad daylight on Surf Avenue on Jan. 21, taking his cellphone.

The victim told police that he was near W. Eighth Street at 2:10 pm when the crooks waltzed up and demanded his phone. The victim bluffed, and said he didn’t have one, but the miscreants weren’t buying it, and decided to turn out the kid’s pockets, finding his phone and his wallet, cops said.

The billfold was blissfully empty of cash, and the heels kindly returned it, but not before asking the boy for his phone’s password. When the young man hesitated, one of the brutes drew a pistol and shouted, “Unlock it, or I will shoot your brains out,” according to police. After the boy relented and mumbled the code to unlock his phone, the crooks fled, cops said.
