Bicyclist shot

Two thugs shot a bicyclist in the leg on Dec. 31 during a harried hold up on Prospect Place.

The 33-year-old victim was between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at 4:20 am when the thieves stopped him and demanded his cash, ring and cellphone.

The bicyclist evaded the thugs by abandoning his wheels and running into a building. But he crept back outside a few moments later to get his bike — only to come face to face with the thieves once again.

The goons shot him and took his property, leaving him with flesh wound.

Delivery debacle

A pair of thieves jumped a deliveryman on St. Johns Place on Dec. 30, but ran away empty-handed.

The victim was dropping off an order between Plaza Street East and Underhill Avenue when the thieves pistol-whipped him, leaving the 24-year-old with a split lip and a bruised eye.

Stunning crime

Cops nabbed a thug with two stun guns after pulling him over for not signaling a turn on Atlantic Avenue on Dec. 18.

Police said that the 26-year-old driver didn’t use his blinker when he was changing lanes near Classon Avenue at around 8:30 pm — and when they pulled him over, they discovered the two weapons.
