Stick ’em up

Cops are hunting two stickup artists who they say robbed a man on Seventh Avenue on Nov. 3.

The victim, who spoke Spanish, told police the crooks jumped him near 40th Street at 8 pm, sticking something to his back and barking demands in English that he didn’t understand.

The crooks ended up stripping the victim of his Samsung smartphone, along with $60, and his social security card, cops said.

Afterwards, the bandits fled on foot, according to police, who said the case remains open.

Scratch off

Police are searching for the miscreant who carved “f--- you” into a man’s car on Seventh Avenue on Nov. 4.

The victim told police he left his 2018 Infiniti between 53rd and 54th streets at noon, and returned about an hour later to find the curse scratched into the back of his car, and then repeated on the front and sides.

No arrests have been made in the case, which remains open, cops said.


Some ruffians beat up a guy and took his wallet on 64th Street on Nov. 4.

The victim told police he was near Sixth Avenue heading home from a party at 5 am when the crooks pushed him from behind, sending him sprawling on the ground.

Once on the pavement, the thieves rifled through his pants and nabbed his wallet, along with the $200 inside, before hightailing it, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief drove off with a man’s motorcycle he parked on 17th Street on Nov. 2.

The victim told police he left his 2017 Yamaha chained to a gated window between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 11 pm, but returned the next morning to find an empty spot where his speed machine had been.

Grow up fast

Cops arrested a man for putting his 11-year-old son in the driver’s seat of his 2004 Yukon Denali as two other kids rode in the back on First Avenue on Nov. 3.

An officer with the state’s Environmental Conservation agency claims he spotted the pint-sized driver motoring near 50th Street at 3:05 pm, while his old man rode shotgun, and his pals tagged along in the back.

Police busted the man that day, charging him with reckless endangerment, cops said.
