Cops arrested a boozehound who they say robbed a Flatlands Avenue liquor store twice in the last week.
Workers at the storey, located near E. 86th Street, said the 20-year-old grabbed a bottle of liquor from the store on Oct. 28 and walked out without paying for it.
Then, on Nov. 6, the alleged thief returned, only to have a store clerk refuse to buzz him in. Outraged, the suspect kicked at the door repeatedly until cops were called.
A 34-year-old man was arrested on Nov. 2 after he was caught drunk driving on Glenwood Road, police said.
Cops pulled the suspect’s 1998 Nissan over near E. 105th Street at 1 am. He was taken into custody when a blood-alcohol test came back with a .188 percent score — well over the legal limit.
Two teens were arrested for trying to mug a man on E. 87th Street on Oct. 31, police said.
The victim said he was nearing Avenue L at 5:05 pm when the suspects attacked, punching and kicking him repeatedly.
The suspects kept yanking at the victim’s jacket through it all — but fled empty-handed.
