A thug in a black ski mask and a hooded sweatshirt robbed a Court Street grocery store on Sept. 17, police said.

The black-clothed bandit entered the store, which is between Sackett and Douglass streets, at 11:25 pm, demanding $20 from the clerk behind the counter. When the storekeeper refused to open the kitty, his unwelcome visitor took a blade with a brown and gold handle from his pocket.

He kept the silver knife pointed at the clerk until $1,000 was emptied from the register and handed to him. Police believe the hood fled south on Court Street.

Midnight ride

Three young men on bikes assaulted a taxi driver as he parked his black Town Car in a lot on the corner of Carroll and Bond streets at around midnight on Sept 18.

The 46-year-old driver was knocked to the ground and punched by one of the three biker-thugs while the other two played lookout on the desolate Gowanus corner. The men got away with keys to the service limo, $400 and a Blackberry smartphone. They biked off with their loot, leaving the empty-pocketed driver standing next to a useless car.
