Gunpoint robbery

Two good-for-nothings threatened a woman at gunpoint before knocking her unconscious and swiping her wallet on W. 21st Street on June 10.

The victim said she was walking near Surf Avenue at 7 pm when a man knocked her down and brandished a black gun. A woman then approached her from behind and hit her in the head with a glass bottle, knocking her unconscious, cops said.

When the victim woke up, she realized they had taken her Burberry wallet, which had a debit card in it, according to the police report.

Bodega arrest

Police arrested a man who allegedly tried to rob a Neptune Avenue bodega on June 15.

The victim said the man walked behind the counter at the store near Ocean Parkway at 1:45 am and tried to take money from the cash register.

Knocked out

A punk stole a man’s iPhone on a Brooklyn-bound N train on June 16.

The victim said he boarded the train in Queens at 7 am. He was playing a game on his phone when he was hit with an unknown object, then later fell asleep. A train employee woke him up at the Stillwell Avenue station, and he realized someone had taken his iPhone 6s.
