Slice and dice

A man threatened to slice a worker of a Myrtle Avenue store with a knife on Jan. 27 after the employee tried to stop him from stealing body wash and T-shirts.

The staffer told cops the crook entered the store between Clermont Avenue and Adelphi Street around 8:15 am and took the items without paying. The victim then tried to retrieve the stolen items but the robber flashed a blade and hissed, “I’ll f--- you up,” then fled, according to authorities.

Doesn’t register

A miscreant broke into a Fulton Street restaurant and stole money from a cash register on Jan. 27.

The sneak entered through the side window of the eatery near S. Oxford Street between 12:40 am and 7:30 am and took the $833 that was in the register, police said.

Double grab

A villain snatched a woman’s phone and purse as she was walking on Lafayette Avenue on Jan. 29.

The victim told police she was strolling near Washington Avenue when the lout approached her from behind, tried to grab her phone out of her hand, and asked for her password.

He then yanked away her cell and took her purse from her shoulder as he attempted to poke her with the unknown object before fleeing, a report said.

Pen plundered

A ball-point bully socked a 69-year-old man and stole his pen on a Manhattan-bound Q train as it was near Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 23.

The senior was riding the train by Hanson Place around 12:30 pm when the lout grabbed his writing device. The man tried to take it back but the jerk punched him in the side of the face and fled, according to authorities.

Double teamed

A pair of scofflaws stole a man’s phone out of his pocket on Fulton Street on Jan. 23.

The victim was walking out of the building near Grand Street at 2 pm when one of the scoundrels grabbed him from behind while the second knave removed the phone from his pocket, cops said.
