Bad company

Cops are looking for four female thieves wanted for beating and robbing a woman on Sixth Avenue on Feb. 7.

The victim told police she noticed the girly goons following her as she neared 55th Street on her way home at 8:35 pm, and she tried to crossed the street to get away from her stalkers.

But her assailants crossed with her and then launched their attack, cold-cocking her from behind and pushing her to the ground, before nabbing her purse and fleeing, cops said.


Cops cuffed a 30-year-old man on an attempted burglary charge after he allegedly tried to break into a Reeve Place home on Feb. 9.

The victim told police he was in bed sleeping with his wife at their home near Prospect Avenue at 2:15 am when he was awoken by the sound of the suspect trying to break down his front door.

Unable to get through the main entrance, the suspect then tried a side door, before climbing up to the second floor and breaking a sliding glass door, cops said.

No property was stolen and New York’s Finest showed up to arrest the man that day, according to police.


Some crook drove off with a woman’s 2000 Dodge Caravan she parked on 44th Street on Feb. 8.

The victim told police she left her carry-all between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 10:30 pm, and returned the next morning to find an empty spot where her car had been.

Soft target

Police cuffed a 48-year-old woman for allegedly sucker-punching a 75-year-old woman in the face inside a 37th Street apartment on Feb. 5.

The victim told police she was arguing with the suspect inside the rental between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 10:30 am, when she hauled off and slugged her.

Police picked up the suspect that day on a felony assault charge, cops said.
