Police collared a Boerum Hill man on felony robbery charges for allegedly threatening to beat a worker at a Downtown Starbucks in order to steal a mug on Thursday.

The victim told police he was busy serving customers at the chain coffee shop on Jay Street near Myrtle Avenue at 6 a.m., when the suspect threatened to slug him in the face in a bid to abscond with the ill-gotten cup.

Police arrested the man on the scene, charging him with third-degree robbery, third-degree menacing, and petit larceny charges, according to police.
