Robbing the cradle

Panty raid!

Cops arrested a 35-year-old man for allegedly stealing panties from a Flatbush Avenue lingerie store on Feb. 19.

An employee told police she spotted the suspect nab a whopping 22 pairs of underwear from the shop between Fourth and Atlantic avenues at 4:50 pm, before trying to skip past the register with his ill-gotten undies.
