The theft occurred between 25th and 26th streets between 3 am and 4:30 am, when cameras captured the perp entering the car, cops reported.

Double holdup

Police arrested two men who they say held an employee of a Third Avenue store at gunpoint and stole $230 and an iPhone 6 on May 28.

Punched and robbed

A lout punched a man — causing bruising to the left eye — before stealing $1,500, a gold chain, and a cellphone from him when he was walking on 39th Street on May 28.

The lowlife also kicked and punched a second man, causing bruising and swelling to his right, and stealing credit cards and his wallet, police reported.

The theft and assault occurred near Second Avenue at about 6:30 pm, and the crook fled in an unknown direction, cops said.

Phoned a friend
