Two men robbed a 49-year old man at gunpoint on Huntington Street at around noon on Dec. 15, cops said.

The criminals netted $1,300, plus assorted ATM and credits cards, in the theft, which took place between Columbia and Hicks streets.

The criminals are still at large.

Snow job

Three men robbed a man shoveling snow on Beard Street on Dec. 16.

The three men, about 18–20 years old, pointed a handgun at the 51-year old victim as he did his chore near the corner of Dwight Street, and said, “Just give us the wallet. Don’t give no trouble.”

The victim complied, losing $650, although one of the suspects complained: “Hurry up, you’re taking too long.”

No arrests have been made.

$7 stickup

A trip to the store cost a woman more than she expected on Dec. 15.

On her way home from shopping at 8:20 pm, the 26-year old woman was stopped on the corner of Hicks and Warren streets by a man who brandished a firearm and said: “Give me your wallet, I don’t want any problems.”

Neither did the woman, who handed over her cellphone, credit cards, and $7 in cash to the robber.

Hook shooting

A man shot a 35-year-old man in a store on Henry Street on Dec. 17, police said.

The victim, who was at work in the business, which is between West Ninth and Huntington streets, was shot a single time in his knee. Police sources say the shooting was not a part of a robbery.

The victim was taken to Long Island College Hospital for treatment for “non-life threatening injuries,” the police said.

No arrests have been made, but the police are questioning a suspect, the New York Sun reported.
