Lying robber

A cash-hungry cretin walked into the Sovereign Bank on Montague Street on Dec. 22 and passed the teller a note demanding cash.

The thief entered the branch at around 5 pm and handed the teller a note and said, “I will shoot you.” The teller handed over $2,000, sending the thief bolting out the door toward Clinton Street.

The man didn’t have a gun, but the teller told cops that she wasn’t taking any chances. Police couldn’t find the elusive criminal.

Quick snag

A hooded chump ran up and swiped a woman’s purse as she left a bank on Flatbush Avenue on Dec. 22.

The victim was walking toward Nevins Street at about 3 pm when the perp came from behind, snagged the purse — which contained about $200 and credit cards — and fled.

Random assault

A 60-year-old curmudgeon repeatedly punched an elderly woman with a hard object as she was leaving the YWCA on Third Avenue on Dec. 22 — but he got bruised in the end.

The unsuspecting exerciser was leaving the building — which is between State and Schermerhorn streets — at about 3:30 pm when the older woman attacked her, apparently at random.

Police later arrested the senior terror, though details were not available.

Yum, I love a quick snag, if it's done right that is. It's like they say, it's not the speed of the boat - it's more about the motion of sea.
