Eight on one

Eight brutes robbed a guy on Sheepshead Bay Road on June 26, cops said.

The victims told officers he was walking near Voorhies Avenue around 1 am when the louts approached him and said, “You know what’s up!” according to the report. The nogoodnicks rifled through the victim’s pockets, and threatened him with a knife when he resisted, police said.

The creeps swiped the victim’s iPhone X, headphones, and Louis Vuitton wallet, authorities said.

Shoeless Joe

Police arrested a suspect who they say, along with two other guys, assaulted and attempted to rob a man of his pricey “Yeezy” sneakers on Moore Place on June 26, cops said.

The victim told cops he was walking near E. 16th Street around midnight when the two suspects approached him. One said, “Take off your sneakers or I’m going to punch you,” while the other reached into his bag, pretending to have a weapon, according to the report. Two of the suspects then dragged the victim on the ground, while a third removed the kics from his feet, the report says.

The three split up and fled, throwing the shoes under a car, police reported. One of them was arrested on Quentin Road, while the other two remain at large, authorities said.

The great train robbery

A brute robbed a man at gunpoint on the D train on June 27, cops said.

The victims told cops he was on the train running over the N Line near the 86th Street stop around 4 am when the lout approached him and asked to buy a cigarette, cops said. The crook then asked the victim, “How much money you got?” and pulled out a gun, the report said. The victim gave up some cash and the thief fled, police said.

Jewel heist

Some sneak broke into a woman’s E. 18th Street apartment on June 25 and stole cash and jewelry, cops said.

The victim told cops she came home around 6 pm to find her door open, the lights on, and her belongings missing, police said.
