Shoe sleazebag

A snake shoved a woman to the ground on W. Third Street and stole her bag and phone on July 22, police said.

The 22-year-old woman told police she was walking home from the Avenue X train station when she stopped in a deli for some water at about 12:45 am, and then headed to her home near Avenue Y when she felt that someone was behind her.

She turned around and the villain pushed her to the ground and grabbed her Michael Kors bag, Steve Madden heels, iPhone, driver’s license, and debit card, according to authorities.

Dine and dash

A baddie ran off with a wad of cash from an E. 16th Street diner sometime overnight on July 17, police said.

The owner told police the storefront gate near Avenue P was open and two feet off the ground, and the punk swiped $600 from the cash register sometime between 11 that night and 10 am the next day, officials said.

While she was out

A malefactor swiped thousands of dollars in jewelry and electronics from a woman’s home on E. 11th Street on July 20, police said.

The 29-year-old woman told police she left her home near Avenue Y with her mother at about 5 pm and when they returned at 9 pm, noticed the front door was damaged. The lout stole her laptop, bracelet, rings, watch, and cash, according to authorities.

Party brawl

Three nogoodniks punched a guy and stole his jewelry after all leaving a party near Kings Highway on July 22, police said.

The victim, who said he was drunk, told police that after leaving the shindig near E. 12th Street at about 3 am the three snakes started punching him in the face and then grabbed his metal cross necklace and fled, officials said.

The 34-year-old man told police he was too drunk to describe the brutes, but believes they were at the same party, according to authorities.

Street attack

A criminal stole a woman’s bag, hit her in the face, and threatened her with a gun on Avenue Z on July 18, police said.

The 26-year-old woman told police she was walking home from the train station near E. 26th Street at about 1:50 am when the rogue came up to her from behind and socked her in the face, knocking her down to the ground.

The malefactor then said “Drop the bag! Give me the phone!” but the woman did not give it to him and he took out of a silver gun and struck her in the face with it, and then grabbed her bag and ran off, police said. The crook took her bag with her iPhone, Bluetooth keyboard, and portable charger inside, officials said.

Fast getaway

Two punks punched a guy in the face and stole his gold chain from his neck on Avenue V on July 19, police said.

The 23-year-old victim told police he was walking home when the pair of nogoodniks pulled up to him in a blue Hyundai near W. Sixth Street at about 6:10 pm and got out of the car and then started punching him in the face and body.

The jerks also struck him with a baseball bat and then grabbed his gold metal necklace and cross, according to authorities. The knaves fled in their car and struck the guy in the legs as they drove off, officials said.

Money bags

A worm threatened a guy with a gun and ran off with bags of cash from a Coney Island Avenue gas station on July 20, police said.

The store employee told police the cur walked into the store near Avenue T at about 2:45 am and brandished a gun and said “Give me the money!” The snake then jumped behind the counter and the employee handed him three bags of cash filled with $600, according to authorities.

The jerk, who is about 5-foot-9 and was wearing blue jeans, a black ski mask, and a blue T-shirt with the number 72 on it, fled toward E. 12th Street, police said.
