Never hit a pregnant woman

A trio of villains hit a pregnant teen on a Brooklyn-bound C train near the Jay Street station on June 16, police said.

The 18-year-old woman told cops she was on the train near Willoughby Street at about 3:45 pm when she got into an argument with the three bad guys and two of them struck her in the stomach with a cane, knocking her over. Paramedics took the woman to Methodist Hospital for observation, according to authorities.

The nogoodniks also struck the teen’s mom and punched, choked, and hit her 14-year-old brother, with whom she was on the train, officials said.

Foul play

A punk swiped a guy’s wallet while he was playing soccer in Brooklyn Bridge Park on June 13, police said.

The 22-year-old told cops he was kicking around the ball at the green space’s Pier 5 near Joralemon Street at about 7 pm, and when he returned to the sidelines an hour later to pick up his stuff — including a Louis Vuitton wallet, credit cards, and Dutch identification card — it was gone.

Watch the weiners!

A sneak swiped a woman’s backpack from a hot dog stand parked on Joralemon Street on June 14, police said.

The 22-year-old told police she was working the cart near Court Street at about 10 am when she stepped out and left the door open while checking on the generator, and when she got back inside, her backpack with her wallet, cash, and credit cards were gone, according to authorities.

Soul snatcher

Cops cuffed a guy for threatening a victim and stealing his money on Flatbush Avenue on June 15.

The 34-year-old victim told cops he was standing near Fulton Street when the suspect said “I’m the Grim Reaper, I’m going to take your soul,” placed him in a chokehold, and threatened him with a sharp object in his back, cops said.

The suspect then grabbed $375 from the victim’s pants pocket and the victim walked across the street, where another unknown good-for-nothing stabbed him, according to authorities. Paramedics took the suspect to Methodist Hospital, officials said.
