Subway scoundrel

A cur punched a transit worker in the face inside a subway station near Pacific Street on March 24, police said.

The 29-year-old victim told police the good-for-nothing came up to his window in the station near Fourth Avenue at about 11:25 am to ask if the Q train was working, and when he looked down at his schedule, the snake socked him in the face, according to authorities.

Un-happy meal

A baddie stabbed a guy in the neck inside a Livingston Street diner on March 25, police said.

The 39-year-old victim had gotten into an argument with the criminal inside the eatery near Bond Street at about 3:30 am when the lout left and then came back about 30 minutes later and stabbed the victim in the right side of his neck, cops said.

Paramedics took the victim to Methodist Hospital, and the sneak fled on Livingston Street, according to authorities.

That’s not funny!

A crook broke into a Jay Street building and stole a speaker and comic books sometime overnight on March 17, police said.

The malefactor broke in through the front door between John and Plymouth streets and ran out with a Jawbone Jambox speaker, and Marvel comics from the 1960s and 1970s, according to authorities.

Big data breach

Some baddie swiped laptops from a school building on Jay Street sometime overnight on March 22, police said.

The victim told police she walked into work at about 7:50 am after leaving the building the day before at about 7:30 pm and saw her Dell laptop was missing, and then noticed her co-worker’s Dell laptop and charger were also gone, according to authorities.

The victims said it looked like someone had broken into the building between John and Plymouth streets on the second floor, officials said.

Sneak attack

A sneak ripped a guy’s headphones right off him near MetroTech Center on March 22, police said.

The 24-year-old victim told police he was near Jay Street at about 5:30 pm when the nogoodnik came up to him and swiped his white Beats, cops said.
