62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Road rage

A baddie purposefully drove his car into a woman’s legs while she was conducting an evacuation drill at a 24th Avenue school on June 15.

The woman is the middle school’s principal and asked the man to patiently wait in his car while students crossed the street between Bath and Harway avenues just before 9 am for the drill, said police. But the cad could not have cared less and purposefully struck the woman in the knees with his car several times, despite her shouting for him to stop, according to a police report.

The educator suffered a sprain, swelling, and bruising to her right knee, authorities said.


A thief managed to take off with 138 packs of cigarettes from an 86th Street pharmacy on June 23.

The cashier told police that the goon entered the drugstore between Bay 40th and Bay 41st streets at 4 am, walked over to the cashier’s counter, and began grabbing packs of Marlboro, Camels, and Newports.

The chainsmoker drove off with an accomplice in a black Nissan Altima, according to a police report.

Et tu?

A supposed “friend” literally stabbed a man in the back after beating him with a stick on Avenue U on June 22.

The 30-year-old victim told police that the man, who he described as a “friend,” suddenly began attacking him with a stick — striking him in the head and body — between W. Fifth and W. Sixth streets at 8 pm.

The lout pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the back, resulting in a wound emergency responders said was superficial to the muscle, according to a police report.

Crafty thief

A goon removed a man’s car window and raided the vehicle on the corner of 21st Avenue on June 24.

The man told police that he parked his car near 64th Street that morning, and returned at 5 pm to discover the rear passenger-side panel window was gone. A backpack stuffed with cash and bank cards was swiped, authorities said.

The victim called his bank to report his card stolen and was informed that there was an attempt to withdraw cash from his account at 6:30 pm in Bensonhurst. Officials at the 62nd Precinct were informed, according to a police report.
