Ding, dong, ditched

A crook rang an 85th Street woman’s front doorbell on May 18 — before sneaking around her house and through a back window, cops claim.

The victim reported that she heard somebody chime at her house between 12th and 13th avenues at 3:56 pm and went to answer.

While she was busy, the creep made his way inside through a rear window and grabbed the woman’s laptop. But the victim spotted him, and ran out of the house with her children.

The intruder turned heels, too, dropping the computer in the backyard.

Bad biker

A jerk made off with a $2,800 bicycle left in the hallway of a 73rd Street building on May 16.

The victim told police that he left his bike in the hallway of his building between 12th and 13th avenues at 9:35 pm, and went back just moments later to find it missing.

Police say they got a good look at the thief on surveillance tapes.

No reception

A thug snatched a Bay Ridge woman’s iPhone right out of her hand while she was riding the R train on May 18, according to cops.

The victim told police that the Manhattan-bound train was at the 77th Street and Fourth Avenue stop when the crook grabbed the gadget and fled.

Gym rat

A thief stole a man’s cash and credit cards out of a locker at a popular Fourth Avenue fitness center on May 17, police say.

The fit victim said he locked up his belongings in one of the compartments at Harbor Fitness between 92nd and 93rd streets at 12:15 pm, and then worked out.

When he came back, his lock had been clipped and his stuff was gone.
