Three bigots bashed a man with a wooden bat and sticks as he was walking home along Fulton Street on May 6.

The man was strolling near Jay Street at 10 pm when three goons approached him and said, “Homo like you don’t belong here,” and “F-----.” before pounding him with the wooden objects, cops said. He sustained bruises on his right hip and left shoulder but eventually escaped into a cab, authorities said.

Dye hard

A punk tried to hold up a Flatbush Avenue bank on May 6 but all he got was a wad of dye-stained cash.

An employee of the bank near Fourth Avenue said the reprobate passed her a note at 2:04 pm that said, “Top and bottom drawer gun on me, no dye packs no alarms. Pass note back not alone five big bills.”

The employee handed him a dye pack containing $225 and the thief took it and fled, according to a report.

Bank blunder

A baddie tried and failed to rob a Smith Street bank on May 4.

The nogoodnik entered the bank near Wyckoff Street at 3:13 pm and strode up to the teller window, hissing “This is a hold up, give me all your hundreds,” but his request went unanswered and he fled the money house without any cash, authorities said.

Nickel and dimed

A penny pincher broke into a Pacific Street apartment and stole a jar of change on May 5.

The guy entered through the back window and pocketed the container of change from the victim’s son’s room, cops said. A babysitter saw the sneak leave the house as she was entering, according to a report.

Passion for fashion

A baddie broke into a Wyckoff Avenue apartment on May 1 and stole packages from the basement.

The victim told police the louse forced opened the front door by Smith Street and then broke into the cellar, taking packages from the hall filled with $1,800 worth of clothes and shoes.
