Two pierced molls ransacked a 27-year-old woman’s Lorimer Street apartment after she invited them to her home after a night at the bar.
The bad gals — whom cops said both sported tongue rings — met the victim on Feb. 10 at the Lazy Catfish, which, as readers of The Brooklyn Paper well know, serves free Pabst Blue Ribbon on Tuesday nights.
When the trio arrived at the victim’s apartment, which is between Jackson Street and Skillman Avenue, at around 4 am, the resident went to bed and the guests grabbed her cash, guitar and debit card before she awoke at 7 am, cops said.
Two gunslingers held up a food vender who was hawking lunchtime grub from a van at the corner of Berry and North 11th streets on Feb. 9.
The robbers — each armed with a black handgun — confronted the merchant at around 12:30 pm and demanded cash.
“Don’t f—ing move,” one of the thugs shouted. “Give me everything you have.”
The 48-year-old vender forked over $500 and jewelry, and the thieves fled in green Ford Explorer with Florida plates and tinted windows, cops said.
Two armed thugs held up a 21-year-old at the corner of Roebling and North 10th Street on Feb 13 — then mugged another victim just blocks away.
The crooks targeted their first mark at around 1 am, pointing a gun at the victim and demanding his belongings.
“Give me your iPod and everything you got,” one of the crooks said, while the other pilfered his pockets and snatched his cash, phone, laptop, and clothing.
The thugs fled down Roebling Street, where they forced another victim to empty his pockets and fork over a cellphone and $50.
Cops nabbed two suspected iPhone thieves who were too out of shape to make a getaway on Feb. 10.
The alleged crooks, aged 16 and 17, pried an iPhone from a 20-year-old’s grasp at the corner of Bedford Avenue and North Seventh Street — but the victim chased.
The thieves grew tired, so they resorted to threats.
“Don’t touch me or I will shoot you,” one of the thugs warned when the victim finally caught up to them.
But police locked up both suspects before they could shoot the victim — or escape with his phone.
Two thugs slugged a 15-year-old in the back of the head and stole his iPod as he walked to the train on Feb. 9.
The muggers struck the teenager at the corner of Manhattan and Nassau avenues at around 8:25 and snatched the popular digital music device from his jacket pocket.
A thug jacked a 22-year-old woman’s bag as she walked home from her friend’s apartment on Feb. 11 and made off with her laptop, iPod and debit card.
The crook approached the victim from behind at the corner of Clay Street and McGuinness Boulevard at around 1:50 am and snatched the purse before dashing away.
