He broke the front window of the store between 94th Street and 95th Street around 4 am, pried open the register with the crowbar, and stole $1,000 in cash, cops reported.
All that work must have left him parched, because he stopped to swig a bottle of Snapple juice on his way out, surveillance video showed.
A bruiser robbed a guy while he was walking home with his girlfriend on Colonial Road on Halloween night.

Then he slammed his face against the sidewalk, took his cellphone and wallet, and fled, said the report.
