Delinquent duo

Two brigands robbed a woman on Avenue Z on Feb. 3.

The woman was washing the window of her car near Coyle Street at 9:45 am when another woman approached her asking for directions.

A guy then pushed the victim to the ground and ran away with her pocketbook, said cops. The woman cut her right knee when she was knocked to the ground, police reported.

Bike bandit

A thief stole a woman’s bike on W. Sixth Street on Feb. 3.

The victim told cops that the lout got into the rear garage of her home near Avenue U around 5:25 pm through the side door at the side driveway while she was at a corner deli.

The victim said she wasn’t sure if the garage door was locked, according to the authorities.
