Knifeman on a bike on Flatbush

77th Precinct

Prospect Heights

Crazed biker

A knife-wielding bicyclist threatened a man on Flatbush Avenue on May 18.

The 43-year-old victim told cops that he was near Park Place at around 9:45 pm, when a rogue cyclist bumped into him. The two men got into a fight and the biker then pulled out a knife and said, “I’m gonna stab you!”

Cops are hunting for a balding, 6-foot, 220-pound man.

Toy stickup
