72nd Precinct

Sunset Park–Windsor Terrace

Connect four

Cops are hunting the four fiends who they say beat and robbed a man on 57th Street on April 30, taking his phone and $210.

The victim told police the crooks attacked him between Third and Fourth avenues at 6 a.m., swinging at him with a glass bottle, and pummeling him with a flurry of blows, before reaching into his pockets and nabbing his valuables.

E you later

Some jerk rode off with a man’s E-bike he parked on Prospect Park Southwest on April 30.

The victim told police he left his bike between 10th and 11th avenues at 6:30 p.m., and returned a half-hour later to find his pricey ride stolen.

In the weeds

Police cuffed a man they allegedly caught in possession of a small fortune’s worth of weed and marijuana oils in his car on 60th Street on May 1.

The arresting officer claims he spotted the suspect changing lanes without signaling near Fourth Avenue at 12:50 a.m., when he pulled over the man’s car and spotted some weed resting in plain view within the vehicle’s center cup holder.

Upon further inspection, the cop found a whopping three pounds of marijuana and 25 boxes of oils, and arrested the suspect on a felony possession charge, cops said.

Have a beer!

Some wacko beat a drunken man with a beer bottle on 40th Street on May 4.

The victim told police he was near Eighth Avenue at 10:20 p.m., when the suspect smashed him over the head with the bottle.

Police found the victim highly intoxicated when they arrived on the scene, and the man was unable to provide investigators with basic information, including his phone number, cops said.
