Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Dirty dogs!

Cops cuffed a man and a woman for allegedly beating a 75-year-old man inside his Bay 31st Street apartment and then his dig on July 30.

The elderly victim told police that an argument about a suitcase broke out at his home between Bath and Benson avenues at 8 p.m., prompting the 31-year-old woman to punch him in the face, and the 48-year-old man to push him to the ground.

The two defendants then allegedly ran off with the man’s Yorkie, Toby, worth $1,500, cops.

Sibling rivalry

A 21-year-old man beat up his younger brother on 17th Avenue on July 27.

The 17-year-old victim told police that his brother struck him with a chair at a store between Bay Ridge Avenue and 68th Street at 11:15 p.m., and then continued the beatdown with a flurry of blows.

Teen terror

Three teenagers beat up a 16-year-old boy on 20th Lane on July 30, taking cash and electronics.

The victim told police that one kid sucker punched him in the back of the head between 21st Drive and Shore Parkway at 5:30 p.m., before the other perps threw him to the floor and continued to wailing on him, taking $3 and other valuables, according to police.

Jewel swap

Two thieves snatched an 83-year-old man’s jewelry from their car on W. Fourth Street on Aug. 2.

The victim said that the two crooks in an SUV approached him on the corner of W. Fourth Street and O Avenue at 5:40 p.m., when they asked him if he wanted to buy jewelry off them.

The faux jewelry vendors then removed two of the victim’s rings as they slipped some of their merchandise onto him, before driving off with his valuables, cops said.
