Monitor mayhem as perps mug man

94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Head butt

Two thieves beat up a man and stole his wallet on Monitor Street on Nov. 5 — but they didn’t get far, cops said.

The victim told police that he was near Norman Avenue at 2:55 am when one perp hit him in the head, knocking him to the ground.

The perp stood over the victim and said, “Give me your wallet!” and the man obliged. The suspects fled, but police said they caught them — with the wallet still in their possession.

Borrowed time

A teenage thief and his friend stole a woman’s phone on Wythe Avenue on Oct. 31.

The victim told police that the perps approached her near N. Fifth Street at 10:30 pm, and one asked to borrow the phone.

The victim handed it over, but the accomplice punched her in the head before both thugs ran away.

Nice knife

The victim was sitting on a bench at 9:20 pm when the perp approached her with the knife and said, “Give me your bag!”

The woman surrendered the bag, and the perp fled toward Metropolitan Avenue. But within minutes, police collared a man they said put the bag in a nearby mailbox.

Grocery shopping

Zipped up
