Ex-lovers’ quarrel

A crook broke into his ex-girlfriend’s Avenue V apartment and stole cash and a cellphone on March 4.

The woman told police her ex used a plastic card to open a chain lock on the door to her apartment between Stillwell Avenue and W. 13th Street before chasing her to her bedroom and pushing her to the ground. The baddie made off at 1 am with the phone and approximately $800 before fleeing the apartment, according to cops.

Police cuffed the men and confirmed their identity with the victim, cops said.
