Four against one

Police cuffed one of four guys who they say stole a teen’s skateboard and beat him up on Avenue W on March 25.

The 17-year-old victim told police he was sitting on the sidewalk outside of his girlfriend’s home on E. 24th Street around 6:20 pm, waiting for her to arrive, when two men came up to him and started making conversation. The teen told police he also noticed a third suspect watching from a distance.

The now-arrested suspect said “nice phone,” according to authorities. The teen started to walk away, but four men caught up to him and began punching him, police stated. They also stole the teen’s board and damaged his cellphone, police said.

The suspects caused injuries to the teen’s hands and head, according to authorities.

Punched and robbed

A marauder punched a guy after stealing his phone on Coney Island Avenue on March 20.

The good-for-nothing took the guy’s Samsung Galaxy Edge S7 right out of his hand on Avenue U at 8:20 pm and then repeatedly punched him, the guy’s girlfriend told police.

The jerk fled down Coney Island Avenue around 8:30 pm, according to authorities.
