A series of wallet thefts and robberies occurred throughout August in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, according to police from the 68th Precinct.

A wallet left unattended on a food service counter at Third Avenue and 72nd Street on Tuesday, August 15 was nabbed by an unknown perp, according to cops. Reports say that when the victim returned after a brief period at around 2:30 p.m., he realized the unknown crook had stolen the wallet.

Just days later, on Friday, August 18, an unknown perp stocked up on MetroCards using credit cards nabbed from a wallet left unattended at a food service counter at 86th Street and Fourth Avenue.

On Saturday, August 19, several items — including a wallet and documents — were stolen from the back seat of a car brought by a 52-year-old woman to an establishment at Fifth Avenue and 65th Street. The victim discovered the theft, according to cops, when the vehicle was returned to her.

On the same day, a 54-year-old man was attacked and robbed by two crooks when walking home at 62nd Street and 10th Avenue. According to cops, at around 2:10 a.m. he was punched by the unknown perps in the back of the head. They then stole his wallet, around $200 and an iPhone.
