76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Mime crime

A black-clad fiend with a make-believe gun robbed a man on W. Ninth Street on Jan. 11.

The 27-year-old victim told cops he was near Henry Street at 5:40 pm when the thug approached, pretended to have a handgun in his waistband, and said, “Give me what you have.” The crook made off with $500.

Full Nelson

A man choked a teen and threatened her at knifepoint on Nelson Street on Jan. 10.

The 16-year-old victim said that she was near Hamilton Avenue at 9:30 am when someone approached her from behind, put a blade to her neck, and growled, “If you scream, I will cut you.”

Cops said a passerby scared off the attacker, who fled. The victim suffered abrasions to her neck and left hand.

Terrible trio

Three brutes robbed and beat a man on Nelson Street on Jan. 12.

The 28-year-old victim told cops that he was near Columbia Street at around 9:50 pm when the trio attacked him from behind, punching and kicking him. The gang made off with a Blackberry cellphone, the man’s wallet, and his keys.
