Police are looking for two louts who swiped $282 from a 9-year-old boy after luring him out of a Fort Greene department store on Jan. 10.

The dirtbags started chatting to the youngster inside the big-box store at the mall on Flatbush and Atlantic avenues at around 5:30 pm and then convinced him to leave the store with them, cops said.

Once outside, one of the jerks put his hand over the kid’s mouth while the other swiped the cash from his pants pocket, according to police.

Police ask anyone with information about the crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach deputy editor Ruth Brown at rbrown@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–8309. Follow her at twitter.com/rbbrown.
