Bike-riding rascal

Some jerk stole a guy’s bike he had locked up on Adams Street on May 6, police said.

The 31-year-old victim told cops he had chained up his bike near Front Street to go to the gym at about 6:45 pm, and when he got back about an hour later, his two-wheeler — along with his lock, helmet, and lights — was gone, according to authorities.

Stabbed in the back

A snake stabbed a guy in the back on Lawrence Street on May 5, police said.

The villain attacked him between Willoughby and Fulton streets at about 6:30 pm and then ran away, cops said. Paramedics transported the 25-year-old victim, who police later discovered had an active warrant, to Methodist Hospital with a stab wound to the lower left side of his back, police reported.

In a split second

A baddie swiped a woman’s wallet inside a Montague Street bank on May 4, police said.

The 63-year-old victim told cops she placed her wallet on the automated teller machine inside the bank near Clinton Street at about 8:20 am and bent down to look in her bag when the good-for-nothing must have swooped in and grabbed her wallet — with her credit card and cash inside it, according to authorities.

Bag raiders

Three nogoodniks swiped a teen’s bag on Jay Street on May 5, police said.

The 19-year-old victim put her black Coach bag down on the sidewalk near Willoughby Street at about 3:50 am while arguing with a friend when the trio of louts grabbed her bag and ran off, cops said.
