Station scuffle

A pair of brutes bashed a teenager and tried to steal his phone in the Fulton Street train station on Nov. 15, but a good Samaritan scared them away.

The 14-year-old victim told police he entered the station near Hoyt Street at 3:15 pm and sat down on a bench. One of the goons sat next to him and threatened, “You gonna gimme the jack or I’m gonna burn ya!” police said.

The victim refused and the bruisers began punching and kicking him until a nearby man attempted to intervene, prompting them to flee, according to a report.

Tuned out

Some sneak lifted a television from a Wyckoff Street residence on Nov. 17.

The filcher kicked in the basement door of the home between Bond and Nevins streets sometime overnight and took the boob tube, authorities said.

Top score

A scoundrel stole 18 hats and four beanies from a Fulton Street store on Nov. 18.

A worker told cops the weasel attempted to leave the store near Pearl Street with the caps at around 4:15 pm and she tried to hold the door closed to stop him. The cur then hit her in the chest with his elbow and fled, according to a report.

Phone plunder

A punk purloined a guy’s phone from his hand as he was walking in MetroTech Center on Nov. 16.

The man was strolling near Flatbush Avenue Extension at 6 pm when the snake grabbed his iPhone and fled, cops said.

Pockets picked

A rogue stole a guy’s wallet from his pants while he was walking on Atlantic Avenue on Nov. 21.

The victim was strolling near Smith Street at 12:40 am when the pickpocket came up from behind, reached into the man’s back pocket, snatched his wallet — containing $500 — and ran off, according to a report.

Cashed out

A bandit stole two cash registers and $1,100 from a Montague Street eatery sometime overnight on Nov. 19.

The burglar entered the restaurant near Henry Street through the front door and removed the goods sometime between 11:42 pm and 9:16 am, police said.
