Poke ya

Two thugs with a gun stole a belt — a really fancy one — from a teenager on Pacific Street on Sept. 20, but they didn’t get much chance to model it for their friends.

The 14-year-old victim told cops that he was near the McDonald’s at Underhill Avenue at 2:30 pm when the jerks surrounded him and one pulled out a knife and said, “I’ll poke you!” while the other flashed a black handgun.

They then snatched the poor kid’s $350 BB Simon belt and ran away.

Cops arrested a pair of 17-year-old suspects two days later.
