Electric steal

A pilferer stole a sleepy straphanger’s backpack containing expensive electronics on a train pulling into Sunset Park’s Eighth Avenue station on May 16.

The thief stole the goods — including a pricey camera, microphone, and headphones, plus cash and a Chinese passport and identification card — just before the train arrived at the 62nd Street station around midnight, police reported.

Three muskateers

A trio of lowlifes attacked a man on 11th Avenue on May 13.

The nogoodniks approached the man at 62nd Street around 11 pm, when they punched and kicked him in the face — causing abrasions, pain, and swelling. Emergency medical personnel brought the man to Lutheran Medical Center for treatment, according to the report.

Empty threat

A pack of punks broke into an empty Bay Ridge Parkway building on May 14.

The trespassers entered the building between 10th and 11th avenues by tearing apart the window screen just after 8 am.

Come back tomorrow

A good-for-nothing knocked over a display in a fit of rage at an 86th Street drugstore on May 16.

The offender entered the store between Fourth and Fifth avenues just after 2 am, and when an employee told him it was closed, he angrily knocked down the display, police said.
