Missing ride

Some cur drove off with a guy’s car parked on Park Avenue sometime overnight on Jan. 8, police said.

The victim told cops he had left his 2000 Toyota Corolla near Clinton Avenue at about 6 pm and when he returned to it the next day at about 4 pm, it was gone, according to authorities.

Cashing out

A pair of nogoodniks stole a machine full of cash from a Fulton Street bodega on Jan. 7, police said.

The good-for-nothings wearing dark clothing removed the automated teller machine from the deli near Clinton Avenue at about 4:45 am by using a red hand cart, and then fled in a white van waiting outside, cops said.

Street savages

Two snakes socked a teen in the face and stole his cash on Auburn Place on Jan. 10, police said.

One of the villains restrained the 19-year-old while the other hit him with an unknown black object on the side of his face near N. Portland Avenue at about 5 pm, cops said.

The victim fell to the ground and the brutes took $20 from his pockets, according to authorities. Paramedics transported the victim to Brooklyn Hospital, police said.
