A man had his West 11th Street home robbed of cash, jewelry and clothing while he was at work on April 10.

The victim returned to his home, which is near Avenue P, at around 6 pm. The thief had squeezed through a bathroom window, and swiped $6,000, jewelry and clothing, police said.

Ungrateful thief

A Mandarin-speaking thief that wasn’t satisfied with the amount of money he swiped from a 14th Avenue store on April 8, cops said.

The perp entered the store, which is near 67th Street, at around 3:40 pm. He pulled a steak knife with a black handle and yelled for the employee to empty the cash register.

But when the worker handed over $259, the robber said, “That’s it?”

Dissatisfied, the perp ordered the employee to sit, then fled down Ovington Avenue, police said.

Chum change

Two ski-mask-wearing thugs attacked and robbed a man on New Utrecht Avenue on March 31.

The 54-year-old man was near Bay Parkway at around 12:50 am when the duo approached. One man grabbed the victim, and put him in a chicken wing hold, a move that would make Bob Backlund proud.

Meanwhile, his accomplice rifled through the victim’s pockets, taking his $46.75 — yes, they took his change! — and his keys, police said.

The thieves fled, leaving the victim not even a quarter to make a phone call.
