Knocked out

A dirtbag knocked a woman unconscious and robbed her on the train at Schermerhorn Street on May 11.

The victim told cops she was taking the Queens-bound A train, and that the bruiser hit her in the back of the head, knocking her unconscious just after her train left the Jay Street-MetroTech station Downtown at 1 a.m.

When she regained consciousness at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station at 2 a.m., she saw that someone had taken her bag — along with her cellphone, glasses, and work identification, according to cops.

Bridge hold up

A reprobate robbed a man at gunpoint on the Manhattan Bridge on May 13.

The victim told police he was cycling across the river on the bike lane side of the bridge towards Dumbo at 1:30 p.m. when the criminal approached him and demanded he give up his bike and cellphone.

He also told the victim to unlock his phone before he fled the scene towards Brooklyn, cops said.

You in a gang?

Goons assaulted and robbed a teen on Bond Street on May 16.

The brutes walked up to the 16-year-old victim near Fulton Street at 5 p.m. and asked him if he was a member of a gang, cops reported. When he replied that he wasn’t, they started to assault him, and took $200 from his wallet, according to the authorities.


A mob of teenagers jumped a man and robbed him on Fulton Street on May 17.

The victim was near Lawrence Street at 9 p.m. when a group of some 10 to 15 delinquents aged around 15- to 18-years-old ambushed him, throwing garbage at him and punching him several times, according to the authorities.

Police say the scoundrels managed to rip a bag from his arm that had more than $300 worth of computer accessories, and fled the scene.

Courthouse brawl

Cops cuffed a man after he allegedly attacked police officers at a Jay Street courthouse on May 15.

Authorities say the suspect was allegedly fighting with another person at the courthouse near Johnson Street at 11:15 a.m., when the officers tried separating them. The suspect allegedly rushed towards the group of Boys in Blue, pushing and striking them, and causing one to fall to the ground and suffer pain and a laceration on his left arm, according to police.

The man then allegedly refused to be handcuffed, tensing his arms and twisting his body while saying “F--- you,” according to the authorities.

Fare evader

Police cuffed a man for allegedly assaulting an officer at a York Street subway station on May 15.

The man then gave a fake name and birth date to the cop, upon which he tried to arrest him, but the guy allegedly resisted, injuring the officer’s nose in the process, according to the authorities.
