All shook down

Two bruisers attacked and robbed a guy at gunpoint on 18th Avenue on May 29, police said.

The victim said he was between 80th and 79th streets around 10:30 pm when the dastardly duo got him up against a wall.

One held him against the wall and the other pistol-whipped him in the face. They then searched his pockets, taking $240, his cellphone, and his identification cards.

Restaurant ruckus

Two brutes beat up and robbed a man outside of a Bay Ridge Avenue restaurant on May 29 — and then attacked a good Samaritan who tried to stop them.

The two marauders slapped around the first victim and stole his cellphone outside the eatery near New Utrecht Avenue around 12:30 am, officials reported.

When another guy intervened, they hit him over the head with a glass bottle, warranting him a trip to the hospital, according to police.

At knifepoint

A pair of knife-wielding nogoodniks robbed a guy on Wallaston Court on May 25, police said.

The guy was walking to his car parked near 66th Street when the two came up to him brandishing a knife and demanding dough, according to police.

The victim tried to run, but tripped and fell to the ground. The two toughs grabbed his wallet containing $350, his identification cards, and bank cards, and fled.

Caught it the act

Intruders stole $300 and keys from an 82nd Street apartment on May 28, according to police.

The victim was returning to his apartment between 16th and 17th avenues around 2:30 am after walking his dog when he saw three people leaving his place.

The trio fled toward 16th Avenue and the victim discovered they had taken his cash and keys, according to authorities.

Joy ride

Some jerk stole a school bus parked on 62nd Street on May 22, police said.

The driver parked the bus between 15th and New Utrecht avenues around 6 pm with the spare keys inside and returned the next day to find it missing. There was no broken glass on the scene.

The gate to the parking lot was also left unlocked, according to police, who later found the bus in Sunset Park.
