Knife to meet you

A 43-year-old man was arrested for robbing a man at knifepoint on Flatbush Avenue on Feb. 2 — taking his cellphone and cash.

The victim told police that he was near Newkirk Avenue at 11:30 pm when the suspect approached him and drew his blade.

“Give me what you got,” the suspect allegedly growled.

The victim handed the suspect his cellphone and the cash from his wallet, according to police.

Gunpoint goon

Police arrested a 42-year-old man who they say threatened a woman at gunpoint on Farragut Road on March 9.

The victim told police that she was between E. 28th and E. 29th streets at 6:30 pm when the suspect pulled out a revolver.

“Get out of here, or I will do you,” the suspect allegedly barked.

The suspect then hurled a glass bottle at the victim as she fled, cops said.
