Through the basement door

A crook stole $6,000 from the basement of an Avenue U business on June 18, police said.

The burglar entered through the cellar door and swiped the cash from payroll drawers, cops said. The sneak then fled through the back door on E. Ninth Street, according to authorities.

Four on one

Some good-for-nothings threatened a man on a Q train, then chased him off the train and out of the Kings Highway station stop before attacking and robbing him on June 18, cops said.

The victim told the cops a brute threatened him with a knife on the Q train. He ran off the train at the stop near E. 15th Street around 6:30 pm, with four guys in pursuit, authorities said. The victim then started to run, but the jerks caught up with him and attacked, getting away with his wallet, Samsung phone, passport, and house keys, authorities said.

Cops took the victim to Mount Sinai Brooklyn.

Bike share

A nogoodnik stole a guy’s bike on Bragg Street on June 18, cops said.

The victim was riding his bike and turned onto Avenue W at 6 pm, when the lout came from behind him and shouted “Let me get your bike!” The jerk then lifted his shirt to show the handle of a black pistol, police said.

The crook rode off on the victim’s bicycle in an unknown direction, according to the police report.
