Pain killers

Two thugs beat and robbed a man on Avenue T on March 14, taking five pairs of pants and the victim’s prescription pain killers.

The victim told police that he was near E. 28th Street at 10:30 pm when the crooks sprung, bashing him on the head and then kicking him in the face after he fell to the ground.

As the victim lay stunned on the ground, the crooks grabbed his bag, which contained the clothing and drugs, cops said.

Pot swap

Cops nabbed an alleged drug dealer on Avenue X on March 14 — after an officer spotted him trading weed for cash.

The officer reported that he was between E. Second and Third streets at 8:30 pm when he spotted the trade. When cops arrested the suspect, they found him in possession of four small bags of weed, nine Alprazolam pills, and three bags of hash, according to police.

On the pipe

A burglar stole metal pipes and an axe from an 81-year-old man’s E. 16th Street tool shed on March. 16.

The victim told police that he had left his home between Avenues X and Y to get some lunch at 1 pm, and returned a half hour later to find the latch on his shed smashed off, and his salvageable metal gone.

Air head

A crook stole an air bag out of a woman’s 2013 Infiniti she parked along Nostrand Avenue on March 15.

The victim told police that she left her car near Avenue Z at 8 am, and returned an hour later to find that her passenger-side window had been smashed, and her airbag was missing.

Cop kicker

Police arrested a 23-year-old man who they say spat on and kicked a cop on Nostrand Avenue on March 18.

The arresting officer reported that he was between Avenues S and T responding to a call for an emotionally disturbed person at midnight, when the suspect spat on him and then kicked him in the groin, police reported.

Masked bandit

A masked gunman robbed a man on Haring Street on March 14 — taking cash and the victim’s cellphone.

The victim told police that he was near Avenue X at 2:30 pm when the masked thug pulled a gun on him, and uttered a threat.

“Run your s---,” the crook growled.

The victim handed the thief his Samsung Galaxy cellphone and $20, and the crook fled on foot, cops said.

Car looter

A crook looted a woman’s car she parked along Sheepshead Bay Road on March 18 — her victim’s cellphone and $400.

The victim told police that she was left her car between Voorhies Avenue and the Belt Parkway at 9:50 am and returned an hour later to find someone got at her cash and phone.

She told police that she left her vehicle locked while she was working out in the gym, but police couldn’t find any evidence of forced entry.
