What a tool!

A burglar broke into a vehicle and stole a bunch of tools at W. Seventh Street between July 20 and 23.

The looter broke the rear window of the vehicle, which was parked in a chain-locked gated commercial area near Avenue V between Friday after 3:30 pm and Monday at 6:30 am and stole a Hilti core drill and a Miller MaxStar welding machine, according to authorities.

Cowardly attack

A group of ruffians cornered a man, struck him to the ground, and robbed him on Haring Street on July 22.

The victim told police he was near Avenue Z at 2 am when he was approached by seven men. Four of the nogoodniks surrounded him, punched him in the face, and knocked him to the ground, he told police. The pillagers went through the victim’s pockets and stole his Coolpad cellphone, a New York State ID, and cash, and then fled towards the corner of Avenue Z, cops reported.

Phone snatcher

A thief stole a man’s iPhone and took off at Mackenzie Street on July 28.

The victim told cops that he was near Oriental Boulevard at 10:30 pm when the bandit forced his iPhone X from his hands and then took off in a black Hyundai Sonata towards Brighton Beach.
