A group of foul-mouthed thugs mugged two teens on June 23, but cops nabbed some of the suspected offenders.
Five or six crooks trailed the victims down Jewel Street, surrounding them at the corner of Meserole Avenue at around 5:20 pm.
“Stop, you f—ing pussies,” a thug shouted before slamming one of the victims against a wall and pummeling him with a barrage of punches.
“Where is your phone?” the crude crook demanded between blows.
The robbers grabbed their victim’s Blackberry and fled, but cops nabbed two teenaged suspects later that evening.
A crook broke into a Huron Street apartment on June 24 and threatened a 21-year-old woman’s life.
The woman heard noises coming from her brother’s room in the apartment, which is between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard, at around 12:40 pm.
When she opened the door to her brother’s room, she spotted a man pilfering her brother’s wallet.
“If you scream or so anything, the people outside will kill you,” the crook said, before slapping the woman across the face and demanding her money.
The woman forked over $4 and the crook fled with the wallet and a black iPod.
Thieves couldn’t unlock a safe when they broke into a Berry Street trading company overnight on June 25, so they stole the safe itself.
The crooks got into the warehouse through a skylight between 5 pm on June 25 and 8 am the next morning, cops said.
The thieves escaped from the warehouse, which is the corner of North 13th Street, with the gray safe containing $8,000.
A crook with an itchy trigger finger Maced a 17-year-old girl as she and a friend left the Lorimer Street L station on June 26.

The vicious attack left the victims temporarily blinded and thus unable to identify the crook.
Three hoods mugged a 21-year-old woman after she withdrew cash from a bodega ATM on June 26.
The muggers struck at around 10:10 pm as the victim stepped out of the shop, which is at the corner of Graham Avenue and Conselyea Street.
“Empty your wallet,” a crook demanded.
The victim obliged, forking over $80 and her Apple laptop.
Cops nabbed a savvy crook who convinced gym employees to let him into another man’s locker on June 29.
While the 29-year-old victim worked out between 4 pm and 5:55 pm, the thief asked employees at the Meserole Avenue gym to cut a bright orange master lock.
“I forgot my locker combination — it’s new,” the crook said.
Gym staff cut the lock, and the thief escaped from the gym, which is between Manhattan Avenue and Leonard Street, with the victim’s backpack, Nokia cellphone, house keys, rain jacket, driver’s license, bankcard and $40.
But cops arrested a 21-year-old suspect later that day.
