Brooklyn Daily

62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Armed and angry

Two gun-wielding crooks robbed a man on Bay 11th Street on April 27, taking $500.

The victim told police that he was inside his 2012 Kia Sportage between Benson and Bath avenues at 5:50 pm when the two thieves approached and drew a firearm. The victim handed over his cash and the thugs fled south-bound on Bay 11th Street.

Battle of the bulge

A brazen thief pulled the old fake-gun-in-his-pocket routine on a man and his girlfriend on 71st Street on April 23 — taking $400.

The victim told police that he and his girlfriend were near 16th Avenue at 9 pm when the crook approached with a gun-shaped bulge in his pocket. “Give me everything you have,” the goon snarled, and the victim handed over his cash.

Excess baggage

A would-be thief attempted to rob a W. Fifth Street apartment on April 25, but fled empty-handed after the renter gave chase.

The victim told police he was inside his apartment between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 1:38 pm when he realized the thief was on his fire escape with several of his valuables. He hurried after him, which caused the thief to drop the goods as he fled.


A crook robbed a woman’s W. Sixth Street apartment of her jewelry on April 25.

The victim told police that she left her home between Avenue P and Quentin Road at 8 am, and returned later to find that her storage closet had been ransacked. The thief had gone through her cabinets and had taken her jewelry boxes.

Truck taken

Someone drove off with a man’s 2008 Toyota Tundra that was parked on Shore Parkway on April 26.

The victim told police that he parked his truck between Bay 16th and Bay 17th streets at 11 am, and headed off to work. When he returned, his $30,000 vehicle was missing. There were no signs of shattered glass, or forced entry at the scene, cops said.

Steal and strip

A thief stripped the tires off of a car parked on W. Fourth Street on April 26.

The victim told police that she parked her car between Avenues O and P at 11:15 pm, and returned later only to find her car on blocks.
