Two on one

A gun-toting goon and his buddy mugged a 20-year-old guy on Fifth Avenue on April 13.

The victim told cops that he was at 67th Street at 8:30 pm when the two unknown perps approached him.

One flashed a firearm and said, “Don’t move or I’ll shoot you.” The perps then double-teamed their prey, punching and kicking him before making off with his cellphone and wallet.

Card shark

Someone jacked a credit card from a Sixth Avenue mailbox between Jan. 15 and Feb. 10 and used it to buy $1,447 worth of stuff.

The victim told cops that his Capital One card could have been idle in his mailbox, which is between 71st and 72nd streets, for nearly a month before it was stolen.
