Bandit in the beauty salon

A villain threatened an employee with a gun in an Avenue S beauty salon on Dec. 29, police said.

The employee told police the miscreant entered the salon near Nostrand Avenue at about 8:55 pm, pointed a black firearm, and then said, “Money on the table, I’m not playing and I’ll be back.” The employee coughed over about $60 in cash from the register and another $7 from another victim, police said.

The brute was dressed in all black, wearing gloves, and sporting a mask, which covered his nose and mouth, officials said. The lawbreaker fled down Avenue S, according to authorities.

Street sneak

A cur threatened a woman with a gun as she was walking home from work near E. 22nd Street on Dec. 30, officials said.

The 26-year-old woman told police she was walking near Avenue X at about 9:40 pm when the goon asked her for directions and then brandished a black firearm, pointed it at her and said, “Don’t do anything stupid.”

The malefactor told her to hand over her bag and run off, police said. The crook took off with her New York State identification card, social security card, two credit cards, and insurance cards, according to authorities.

Awful New Year’s Eve party

Cops cuffed a guy for sexually attacking and assaulting a woman in a subway station near Gravesend Neck Road on Dec. 31.

The 52-year-old woman told police the 21-year-old came up to her from behind in the station near E. 16th Street at about 9:45 pm and grabbed her butt and crotch. He then threw her on the ground and punched and kicked her, officials said. The suspect swiped her bag with her and fled, according to authorities. Another straphanger in the station heard the woman screaming and saw the suspect feeling, officials said. Police caught him after a brief foot pursuit, and he was highly intoxicated, according to authorities.

Bad New Year

Two marauders threatened a guy with a knife and swiped his phone and cash on Coyle Street on Jan. 1.

The 23-year-old told police he was walking near Avenue U at about 3 am when the two jerks came up to him and one took out a knife, officials said.

The fiend said, “Where the drugs at,” and stole his Samsung S7 edge phone, cash, a New York State identification card, MetroCard, and a New Jersey Path SmartLink card, according to authorities. The two malefactors fled on Coyle Street in a silver minivan, officials said.

Minor damages

Some punk broke off a piece of a woman’s front door lock from her apartment in an Oriental Boulevard building sometime between Dec. 28 and Dec. 29, police said.

The woman told authorities someone swiped the cylinder from the lock in the building near West End Avenue between noon on Dec. 28 and 8 am the next morning, officials said. The building’s super said it has never happened before, according to authorities.
