Nasty Nassau

A cruel crook kicked a 44-year-old woman in the face during a brutal Nassau Avenue mugging on Nov. 12.

The vicious villain grabbed the victim around the neck at around 12:45 am, knocked her to the ground and kicked her in the face — possibly breaking her nose, cops said.

The thief escaped from the scene of the crime — which was near the corner of Hausman Street — with the victim’s handbag, $30, credit cards, car keys, and wallet.

G train pain

A subway-riding brute snatched a Sidekick cellphone from a 21-year-old woman’s hand as she rode the G train on Nov. 10.

The thief smacked the fancy phone from the straphanger’s fingers at around 3 pm, then dashed out of the train as at the Greenpoint Avenue station at the corner of Greenpoint and Manhattan avenues.

Mobile mugging

Four crooks mugged a 38-year-old man for his cellphone on Nov. 7.

The thugs slugged the victim on the side of the head at the corner of Banker Street and Meserole Avenue at around 1:30 am, knocking him to the ground.

Once he hit the sidewalk, the crooks pummeled the victim and grabbed his cellphone and credit cards from his back pocket.

Laundry lurkers

Two pint-sized perps mugged a 25-year-old man as he walked home from the Laundromat on Nov. 11.

The teenaged thugs shoved the victim into a fence at the corner of Driggs and Kingsland avenues at around 6 pm, grabbed his handbag, and fled southbound with the victim’s debit cards, credit cards, IDs and wallet.

Purse grab

A crook yanked a purse from a 25-year-old woman’s shoulder as she walked home from the YMCA on Nov. 11.

The thief snatched the bag — which contained $8, credit cards, and a wallet — as the victim walked past the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 11th Street at around midnight.
