A gun-toting thief threatened and robbed a 22-year-old man inside his Berry Street music studio on June 16.
The victim invited the fiend over to his studio near N. Fifth Street to listen to music and smoke a joint at 11:15 pm, he told cops. The thug brought two friends and they chilled together until the victim stood up to get a pack of cigarettes, and one of the crew members asked, “What do you have in your pockets?” the victim told cops.
He refused to answer, so the ringleader lifted his shirt and flashed a silver gun, saying, “Empty your pockets or I’ll blow your f------ face off!” the victim told police.
The robbers took $2,732 out of the victim’s wallet and left the studio.
