A baddie punched a senior in an 18th Avenue bodega on April 21.

The bruiser approached the man in the store between 81st and 82nd streets at 8 am, said police. The brute yelled “I will mess you up,” before punching the 65-year-old man in the jaw, according to a police report.

The villain sped off in an unknown direction, officials said.

The man told police that he was walking home when he was stopped by two ruffians who pressed an object against his back and demanded he put his hands up and freeze, officials said. One nogoodnik rummaged through his pocket and swiped his cellphone and wallet, which was packed with bank cards and cash, said police.

One of the weasels proceeded to whack the man over the head and fled down the block, according to a police report.
