Wheely mean!

Some crooks stole a woman’s city-owned bike on Lafayette Avenue on June 23, police said.

The 26-year-old victim told cops she was docking the CitiBike near Classon Avenue at about 5:30 pm when the bullies came up to her and said “Give us the bike!” The baddies grabbed it from her and fled on Lafayette Avenue, according to authorities.

Snakes on a train

A trio of nogoodniks punched a guy in the face and stole his phone and money while on a Brooklyn-bound train on June 18, police said.

The 58-year-old victim was riding the train from Manhattan to Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street at about 2:30 am when the three good-for-nothings socked him in the face until he lost consciousness, cops said. When the victim woke up near Nevins Street, he realized his green card, gold chain, $700, cellphone, and New York identification card were gone, according to authorities.

Bad tip

Police cuffed two teens for punching a man in the face and swiping his cash while he made a delivery on Carlton Avenue on June 22, police said.

The victim told cops he was delivering food near Lafayette Avenue a little before 11 pm when the two suspects attacked him and said “give me money.” The victim handed the 16- and 17-year-old suspects a wad of cash, who then fled, according to authorities.

Sacrilegious sneak

Some malefactors stole electronics from a Saint James Place church sometime overnight on June 17 through June 19, police said.

The victim told cops the good-for-nothings broke into the house of worship near Gates Avenue sometime between 3 pm on the 17th and 8:15 am two days later and stole Yamaha stereo mixer, speakers, and cables, according to authorities.
