Cut to the chase

A baddie threatened an employee with a knife after robbing a Nostrand Avenue store on March 9.

The victim told police the scoundrel swiped several items of junk food and attempted to flee the store near Avenue X at 12:10 pm. When the victim attempted to stop him, the villain spit in his face and ran off, police said.

The employee again tried to stop the crook, and when he caught up with the man outside, the perp pulled out a knife and threatened to kill him, according to police.


Two muggers robbed a man on Ocean Avenue on March 5.

The victim told cops he was on his way home from school when the robbers approached him near Avenue P around 3:30 pm. One of the perps, approximately 17-years-old, demanded the victim “give me everything you have,” and grabbed his wallet, police said. The other perp took the victim’s headphones from his ears and threatened to cut him, before they both took off toward Quentin Road, according to cops.

The victim told police his credit card was charged following the incident, cops said.
