A knife-flashing cretin robbed a woman’s cellphone and wallet in the Clinton-Washington Station on Nov. 3, but was soon apprehended by cops.
The victim told cops she was walking towards the G train platform at around 11:40 pm when the jerk approached her, grabbed her hair, pulled out the blade and said, “Give me your cellphone, give me your wallet, don’t scream!” The victim complied, but Officer Peter Segerdahl soon slapped the cuffs on the 25-year-old suspect.
The latest attack follows three similar incidents at the Clinton-Washington C-train station a week earlier.

Next, he went into her apartment and stole a MacBook Pro, a digital camera, a pair of sunglasses, and $600.
The same day, Officer Richard Holland arrested a suspect.
