Midnight menace

Gun-armed bandits held up a man on Fulton Street on Aug. 7.

The victim told police that the brigands ambushed him with a semi-automatic pistol near Adelphi Street at 12:20 a.m., when they nabbed his phone and a $20, before fleeing toward Carlton Avenue, police said.

Gunpoint ambush

Two gunmen robbed a guy on Carlton Avenue on Aug. 6.

The victim told cops the wretches pulled out a pistol and told him to hand over his wallet and phone near Lafayette Avenue at 11:45 p.m.

The outlaws then took his cash and a MetroCard from the victim’s money clip, according to police.

Naked criminality

Two rogues stripped and robbed a woman on Monument Walk on Aug. 9.

The victim told police that she was sitting on a bench when the fiends approached her between Navy and St. Edwards streets at 9 p.m., when they shoved her, and yanked off her shorts and shirt to gain access to the phone and cash in her pockets,

Unchained!

A punk snatched a woman’s chains at the Nevins Street subway station on Aug. 5.

The victim told police that she was heading through a turnstyle to the Manhattan-bound platform when the reprobate ripped the golden chain off her neck near Fulton Street at 8:45 p.m.

The woman fought to get back her jewelry and the brute elbowed her in the mouth before the robber fled onto a train, cops said.

Rough and tumble

Some dirtbag beat up on old man on Lexington Avenue on Aug. 9.

The 81-year-old victim told police that the stranger approached him and growled, “I know you,” before hurling him to the ground between Grand and Classon avenues just after 8 a.m.

The victim — who suffered a broken arm and a head injury — later explained to investigators he didn’t know his assailant, who fled the scene toward Classon Avenue following the assault, cops said.
