McKnife

Sometimes the McDonald’s dollar menu is just too expensive.

A punk was arrested after threatening a woman by putting a knife to her neck as she waited on line inside the Broadway location of America’s best-known fast-food restaurant on Feb. 26.

The woman told cops that she was inside Mickey D’s, which is at Havemeyer Street at about 12:20 pm, standing with a dollar bill in her hand. That’s when the thug put the blade to her neck and demanded the cash — which is sufficient money to purchase McNuggets, a McDouble or two apple pies, by the way.

The victim called cops, who responded fast enough to arrest the 56-year-old perp.

De-educated

Some crooks broke into an education business on S. Ninth Street and stole electronics on Feb. 27.

Workers entered the SCO Family of Services building, which is between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue, at about 6 pm to find a computer, DVD player, cameras and a TV stolen. The employees told cops that they’d been in the facility earlier that morning. — Andy Campbell
