Gunned up

Police arrested a man who they say threatened another man with a gun on a Manhattan-bound N train at the 59th Street station on April 29.

Crook with the supple skin

A pilferer stole an estimated $1,300 worth of skincare products from a Prospect Avenue store on April 23.

The robber entered the store between 10th and 11th avenues just before 7 pm and grabbed the goods, police reported.

Hopped on the bike

A punk rode off on a blue 2009 Yamaha moped from Seventh Avenue sometime overnight on April 24.

The owner parked the motorized scooter at 51st Street at 11 pm, and when they returned to it at 8:30 am the following day, it was gone, cops said.

Cashed out

A brute punched a man in the head, threw him to the ground, and stole his wallet with $70 inside in a Fifth Avenue home on April 27.

An intruder broke into a 54th Street home through the basement door on April 27, causing $50 in damage.

The break-in at the home between Sixth and Seventh avenues occurred around 5 pm, but the aspiring thief didn’t make off with anything, police said.

Jacked the jacket

A pilferer stole a man’s jacket that he accidentally left at Sunset Park with $1,000 and a credit and debt card inside at 44th Street between April 27 and 28.

The man left his jacket in the park at Sixth Avenue around 5 pm, and when he realized he left it there and returned to grab it at 8 am the next day, it was gone, according to the report.

Steals on wheels

A bandit stole a 2012 Ducati motorcycle from Eighth Avenue on April 29.
