Smash bro

Mr. Knife Guy

A knife-wielding crook robbed a teenager at the 25th Street subway station on May 5.

The victim, 16, told police the thief pulled the knife on him inside a Manhattan-bound R train at 11:45 a.m.

“You know the drill,” the bandit growled.

The kid forked over his iPhone 7, Bose headphones, and student MetroCard, and the baddie fled into the station, according to police.


A thief drove off with a woman’s 2011 Hyundai Sonata her daughter left on 46th Street on May 9.

The victim told police her kid left the car parked near Fourth Avenue — key in the glove box — at 8:30 p.m., but discovered her four-door stolen the next morning.


Police cuffed a man for allegedly having an illegal knife on 55th Street on May 8.

The arresting officer claimed he pulled the suspect over near Fourth Avenue after spotting him driving with a busted headlight at 12:50 am, when he detected a lit joint burning in the center console.

Upon further inspection, the cop discovered an open container of whiskey and a large knife tucked underneath the armrest of the seat.

The suspect’s Kia Sedona bore Texas plates, cops said.
