Terrifying ride

Two hitchikers picked up by a driver on Ebony Court on April 19 asked him to drive them to an Avenue W house, where they threatened him with a gun and stole his money, police said.

The 46-year-old guy told police he picked up the two snakes at about 4:15 am and drove them to Shore Parkway, back to Ebony Court, and then finally to the house near Bragg Street.

Once inside, the goon put a black firearm to the victim’s head and demanded his money, stating he would kill him if he didn’t give it up, according to authorities. He struck the victim with the weapon, while the female criminal shouted, “shoot him,” took $1,800 from him, and started choking him, officials said.

She then grabbed his car keys and a tablet, according to authorities. The victim pushed the villain away and ran from the car, while both rogues fled down Avenue W, police said.

Brush daily

A gun-toting crook swiped a handful of dental hygiene products from a Nostrand Avenue store on April 18, police said.

The baddie walked into the store near Avenue Y at about 8 am and grabbed Crest 3D tooth whitening strips, Sensodyne toothpaste, and Claritin allergy medicine off the shelves, officials said.

A guy in the store asked the jerk to stop but he pulled out a black firearm and told him to go sit, according to authorities.
