He’s salty!

A snake hurled a salt and pepper shaker at a guy in a Gold Street bodega on March 26, police said.

The victim told authorities the villain threw the bottle at the left side of his face, causing a bruise, inside the bodega between Concord and Tillary streets at about 3 pm, after he asked for the jerk’s identification card, officials said.

Not so sweet!

A yahoo swiped hundreds of dollars from a Joralemon Street candy store after threatening to shoot employees on March 28, police said.

The victims told police the savage walked into the store near Court Street and waited for everyone to leave before demanding they open the register at about 8 pm, showing what appeared to be a gun, and said “open the register cuz I don’t wanna have to kill her for money.”

The brute then pushed the victims in a back room and ran off with $830, officials said.

Park piranhas

A group of miscreants beat a guy up near Brooklyn Bridge Park on March 29, police said.

The 33-year-old victim told police he was walking toward the meadow near Joralemon Street at about 9:40 pm when about four to five snakes came up to him and said they would beat him up unless he gave them his belongings. The victim ran to the park but the baddies caught up with him and one punched him in the face, cops said.

Striking again

Four goons stole a guy’s wallet and phone near Cranberry Street in Brooklyn Bridge Park on March 29, police said.

The 22-year-old victim told police he was walking near Middagh Street at about 10 pm when one of the villains grabbed his neck and the three others went through his pockets to steal his smartphone, $20, and a wallet with two credit cards and his driver’s license inside, cops said.

The four baddies then fled on foot, according to authorities.

While she was out

Some jerk swiped a pocketbook and pack of vitamins from a woman’s Jay Street apartment while she was away between March 23 and April 1, police said.

The victim told police she had left her apartment near Plymouth Street on March 23, and when she got back about a week later noticed that her front door was broken and some sneak had ripped opened her packages and stolen her Bergdorf Goodman leather bag and pack of vitamins, according to authorities.
