Braise-n robbery

A pair of gun-toting marauders knocked over an Adams Street barbecue joint on Sept. 14, police say.

The mask-wearing duo entered the manager’s office in the restaurant near Willoughby Streets around midnight and began threatening the him with a handgun, cops said.

The manager told police that one of the masked men told him to “get on the floor,” then asked “where is the money?” While the manager was face down on the floor, the men took $9,000 in cash and his smartphone before fleeing the scene police say.

Tunneling through

Cops cuffed two women who they said stole shoes and clothing from a store on Fulton Street on Sept. 18 and tried to escape through a subway tunnel, cops say.

Security guards said they saw the two ladies trying to shoplift clothing from the store near Lawrence Street and attempted to stop them, until one of them bit a guard’s hand, allowing them to flee, police said.

The pair tried to escape into the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway station, but police had been notified, and one of the women was apprehended in the station, according to cops. The other fled into the tunnel, and was later arrested at the Nevins Street station, a report states.
