Three men assaulted a pedestrian on the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Jay Street on April 8, punching him in the head and back.
The victim told cops that he had been walking down the street at 4:15 pm when the three men approached, and one pulled out a knife and said, “Give me your s—t. You don’t want me to slice you.”
Before the victim could respond, the thugs beat him and ripped his bag, containing a laptop, cellphone, and two bottles of prescription medication, out of his hands.

As the kid was walking home from a store at 8 am, three teenagers surrounded him, and one pulled a gun and said, “I got a gun. Don’t do anything or I’ll shoot you. Give me your money, iPod and phone.”

The gang entered the store, which is between Montague and Remsen streets, directly across from Borough Hall, at 2 pm. While two of the perps kept the floor staff busy and distracted, the third man entered the back room and grabbed 90 color cartridges, worth $2,935.
All three men escaped.
