Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Jewelry heist

Cops cuffed three teenagers for allegedly punching a 17-year-old and stealing his jewelry on 20th Avenue on Aug. 23.

The victim told police that the suspects approached him near Bay Ridge Avenue at 11 p.m., when they punched him in the face and threw him onto the ground, before nabbing his bling.

The teenager joined patrolmen on a search of the area, where he was able to point out his attackers, cops said

Shopping spree

Police arrested a man for allegedly stealing a woman’s credit card on Bay Parkway on Aug 20.

The victim told police she was in the defendant’s car between W. Ninth and W. 10th streets at 4 p.m., when she stepped out of the vehicle amid an argument, and accidentally left her wallet inside the car.

Later that day, the victim’s bank notified her that her credit card had fueled an illicit $49 spending spree, cops said.

Batter’s up

Six crooks beat two men with a bat, before robbing them on Bay Ridge Avenue on Aug. 19.

The victims told police the ruffians attacked them between 14th and 15th avenues at 12:30 a.m. beating them bloody and bruised with the bat.

The low lives swiped $200 and credit cards from one of the men, before hightailing it, cops said.

Elder abuse

An 85-year-old woman said that a thief snatched $302 and jewelry from her Bay Parkway home sometime between Aug. 20 and 21.

The woman told police that the bandit, who she suspects is her substitute home aide, swiped her stuff from a dining room drawer in her apartment between Bath and Benson avenues under the guise of caring for her.

Fake friend

A man took $1,300 from an 18-year-old boy after threatening to stab him on 20th Avenue on Aug. 21.

The victim told police that the robber approached his car at 4 a.m., and said that he was the brother of the victim’s friend, and that he needed a ride.

As the victim went to drop the perp off on 20th Avenue and 85th Street, the crook, who had a knife attached to his waste, grabbed the boy’s wallet, and said, “Do you want to get stabbed?” before fleeing the vehicle, cops said.
