Cops: Gun-toting teens rob man

61st Precinct

Sheepshead Bay—Homecrest—
Manhattan Beach—Gravesend

Young and dangerous

Two boys, ages 14 and 15, were arrested for robbing a 53-year-old man at gunpoint on Avenue V on July 20, taking his wallet.

The victim told police that he was near E. 15th Street at 2:10 am when suddenly the suspects, and two other accomplices, surrounded him.

“Give me your wallet,” the 14-year-old allegedly squeaked, pistol in hand, while the other boys threatened the victim with glass bottles, according to police.

Police arrested the duo on E. 14th Street and Avenue X, officials said.

Mercedes bent

A crook stole cash and credit cards from a man’s car parked on E. Fourth Street on the night of July 19.

The victim told police that he left his 2012 Mercedes Benz near Quentin Road at 10 pm. The next morning, he found his passenger-side window smashed, as well as $300 and several credit cards missing, cops said.

Cross crook

A 26-year-old man was arrested for robbing a woman on Knapp Street on July 20 — taking a golden cross necklace from off of her neck.

The victim told police that she was near Emmons Avenue at 6:46 pm when she was suddenly shoved from behind. The suspect then grabbed the chain around her neck and pulled, ripping it off, and cutting her in the process, cops said.

Sick stalker

Cops are looking for a man who they say threatened a 31-year-old woman on Coyle Street on July 19.

The victim told police that she was shopping between Avenues U and V at 8:10 am when she noticed the creep taking pictures of her on his cellphone.

“You don’t know what’s coming to you,” the stalker snarled, before fleeing, cops said. The victim later told police that she knew the picture-taking creep — from junior high school.

Wheel bad guy

A thief pillaged a woman’s car parked along Avenue Z on July 19 — taking her steering wheel and air bag.

The victim told police that she left her 2011 Chevy Malibu between E. 12th and E. 13th streets at 8:30 pm. When she returned to her car the next morning, she found the rear passenger-side window busted in, and her steering wheel and air bag gone, cops said.

Pipe perp

A pipe-wielding thug struck a man on his arms and shoulders on Quentin Road on July 21.

The victim told police that he was heading home to his apartment between E. 16th and E. 17th streets when he saw his assailant, pipe in hand, apparently waiting for him.

The thug showered the victim with blows, particularly to his left shoulder, which sustained multiple strikes, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief nabbed a woman’s bicycle she’d left chained up on Avenue X on July 20.

The victim told police she left her $400 bike near McDonald Avenue at 7 pm, and returned later to find it missing, and her snipped, $25 bike-lock lying on the ground.

Ripped off

A teenage thug robbed a man on Brown Street on July 17 — taking a $220 necklace.

The victim told police that he was between Voorhies Avenue and Avenue Z on his way home at 10:30 pm when he was stopped by the perp.

“Run your pockets,” the crook barked, to which the victim replied, “I’m not giving you anything,” and began to walk away.

The thief then ripped a gold chain off of the victim’s neck and fled.

Pint-size purse snatcher

Four teenage thugs robbed a woman of her pocket book on Avenue T on July 17.

The victim told police that she was near Haring Street at 9:05 pm when the young crooks surrounded her, one of them grabbing her purse, before the pack fled.
