A 15-year-old boy was robbed at gunpoint in front of his 62nd Street home on Nov. 2.

The teen told cops that he had gotten to his front door at 2:30 pm when a Chinese man came up from behind and pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at his face.

“Are you Faye?” the armed bandit asked.

After the boy told him “no,” the crook pushed the young victim inside the hallway and then ordered him to break open his mother’s bedroom door. Once inside, he had him smash open a locked drawer where $2,000 was hidden, which the perp grabbed before fleeing on foot.

Wallet swipe

Police Blotter tip of the day — always keep your eyes on your wallet.

A 26-year-old woman says she placed her wallet on a bench in front of a store on 86th Street at 1:20 pm only to turn around and discover it missing, along with the $200 inside.

The bench is near Fourth Avenue.

Bike bandits

Cops broke up a bike heist on Halloween night after 28-year-old man called police when we saw a Third Avenue bike store being robbed at 2 am.

Cops arrived on the scene, which is near 90th Street, and found two perps making off with boxes. When ordered to “freeze,” one of the perps did, but the other ran off. The 17-year-old who obeyed the cops’ order was arrested while his fleet-footed accomplice made off with $1,500 in bike supplies.

Playstation perp

It’s like stealing candy from a baby.

Two heartless thugs swiped a portable Playstation right out of the hands of a 10-year-old boy at 1:40 pm.

The boy was enjoying the handheld gaming device on a bench on Fourth Avenue near 67th Street when the bullies ruined his good time, then ran away laughing.

Delivery bust

A deliveryman had his payment robbed by his own co-worker after delivering to a 20th Avenue tobacco store on Oct. 26.

The man dropped off the co-worker in front of the store, which is near Cropsey Avenue, at around 1 pm, to bring in the goods and get payment from store owner.

Meanwhile, he tried to find a parking spot.

When he finally got to the store, the shopkeeper told him that the co-worker had taken the $2,000, and fled, police said.

He hasn’t showed up for work since.
