Blade runners

Teenage hoodlums, one wielding a knife, mugged another teen on President Street on June 3.

The villains sneaked behind the victim, 14, between Smith and Hoyt streets at 3:15 pm. One of the crooks held the shiv to the innocent lad’s back, before he and his accomplice stole two cellphones from the victim.

Huff and puff

Thieves deployed their SUV as a battering ram against an ATM on the sidewalk of Court Street on June 4, but were unable to uproot the cash machine.

A witness saw two men in the black vehicle deliberately smash into the outdoor bank machine between Douglass and Degraw streets at 2 am, but raiders fled when the cash machine remained rooted.

Taxi nab

Hooligans stole the antennae and radio equipment from a livery cab parked on Hicks Street while the driver visited an ailing family member in the hospital on June 8.

The driver, 35, said he parked his car at 12:20 pm between Warren and Baltic streets. When he returned, his passenger side window was shattered and someone had taken his transmitter, antennae and other gear to communicate with his dispatcher.
