Cookie monsters

A pair of baddies struck a Flatbush Avenue Extension bodega twice, stealing snacks and injuring employees, police said.

The crooks ran out of the store near Fulton Street on Nov. 14 with Lays chips and Oreo cookies a little before 4 am, and when an employee tried to stop them, one of them punched him in the face, according to authorities.

The louts grabbed a Slurpee and Pop Tart from the deli on Nov. 16 at 6:30 pm, cops said.

One of the crooks then spat in an employee’s face and a few minutes later, came back to punch him, giving him a black eye, according to authorities.

Boxed in

Some malefactor threatened a guy with a boxcutter on a Manhattan-bound train near Flatbush Avenue on Nov. 14, police said.

The victim told cops he was on a 2 train near Fulton Street looking at a subway map when the villain said, “What are you looking at? Get out of my face!”

The two started arguing, and the snake pulled out a boxcutter, but the victim was able to grab it and flee the train unscathed, according to authorities.

Data dash

Some cur swiped a guy’s laptop from a Saint James Place building on Nov. 12, police said.

The victim told cops he was doing work on his computer inside the building near Clifton Place a little before 7 pm when he stepped out for about 20 minutes, leaving his laptop unattended, and when he got back, it was gone.

Not caught on camera

Some sneak broke into a teen’s Willoughby Avenue apartment on Nov. 9 and stole his camera equipment, police said.

The 18-year-old victim told cops he left his building near Steuben Street at about 9 am, and when he returned three hours later, his Canon cameras, lens, film, and other equipment were gone, according to authorities.

The victim said he left his apartment unlocked, cops said.
