Don’t shoot

A brute stole a teen’s phone and threatened to shoot him on Avenue X on March 15.

The teen told police he was inside of a diner near McDonald Avenue around 3 pm when the nogoodnik approached and asked to borrow his Samsung Galaxy Note 4. But when the 14-year-old asked for his cellphone back, the miscreant said, “Step back or I’ll shoot you,” according authorities.

The bad guy fled with the teen’s phone in a gray Crown Victoria taxi with two other guys, police said.

Where’s my bike?

A burglar broke into a woman’s home on E. 12th Street on March 16 and stole her bike.

The woman told police the lout broke the lock on the garage door near Avenue Y around 1 pm and stole her pink and black Denali 700C Road Bike. The woman reported the burglary on March 18, according to authorities.

No lock was found outside of the garage and there was no damage to the door, but the woman has video footage of the burglary, police said.
