Look, crime is bad in Fort Greene

88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Subway slash

Two thugs attacked a man on a Manhattan-bound C train on Nov. 12 — sending the straphanger to the hospital for staples and stitches.

The 28-year-old victim told cops that the train was near the Clinton-Washington station at 11:45 pm when one of the goons approached him and yelled, “I’m gonna cut this n—!”

The brute slashed his head, nose and hands with a box-cutter and the other punched him in the face.

Cops say that the derelict duo — both described as 25-years-old and about 6-foot-1 — may have been members of the Crips.

The victim was transported to Brooklyn Hospital.

Apple pry

Three thieves plucked a woman’s iPhone in the Clinton-Washington G train station on Nov. 7.

The victim told police that she was on the subway platform at 4 pm when one of the strangers held her in a bear hug and another rustled through her pockets. They yanked her mobile and fled into a getaway car.

Cops arrested 18- and 33-year-old suspects, but didn’t retrieve the Jobsian device.

Brutal stabbing

A band of marauders stabbed a man in the neck and ribs on Myrtle Avenue on Nov. 7 when he tried to retrieve a stolen bicycle.

The victim told police that he was near Washington Avenue at 6:15 pm when the thugs stabbed him multiple times on his upper body — sending him to Brooklyn Hospital for stitches.

Jumped the gun

A trio of young bandits attacked two teens on S. Oxford Street on Nov. 7 — simulating a pistol and fleeing with a cellphone.

The victims told police that they were near Hanson Place at 6:15 pm when the devious crew surrounded them. One of them asked, “What are you doing?” and another barked, “I have a gun. Give me what you got!”

They fled with a Samsung phone. Police are seeking 17- and 18-year-old suspects.

Bike pain

A thief gershed a $1,500 bike from outside the Atlantic Terminal Mall on Nov. 8.

The 34-year-old victim told cops that he parked on Flatbush Avenue at 1:50 pm. When he returned a half hour later, his gray mountain bike was gone.

Carry-off

A thief boosted a Toyota SUV from DeKalb Avenue overnight on Nov. 9.

The 47-year-old victim told police that she parked near S. Oxford Street at 11:50 pm. When she returned the next morning, her $50,000 wheels were gone.

Storage break

Some jerk snatched fur coats and PlayStation 3 from a storage unit on Flatbush Avenue on Nov. 11.

The 44-year-old victim left her stuff at the facility near Rockwell Place at 2 pm. When she returned the next morning, her $1,200 TV set, clothes, and 15-inch car tire were gone.

Laptop swipe

Some goon lifted a laptop and camera from a Vanderbilt Avenue contractor on Nov. 4.

An employee told police that he left the building near Fulton Street for the weekend at 5 pm. When he returned days later, the front door was busted open and a $1,500 Dell computer was gone.

Dirty secret

A shoplifter in a fur-trim coat stole 240 pairs of underwear from the Victoria’s Secret at the crime-riddled Atlantic Terminal Mall on Nov. 12.

An employee told cops that the thief entered the shop at 10:11 am, yanked $2,000 worth of panties from the shelf and fled.
