A rake robbed a kid of his phone twice on the corner of Avenue X and W. Eighth Street in Gravesend on May 11.
The victim was walking to school at 7 am when a teenage terror told him to empty his pockets, police said. The kid shelled out $8, but that wasn’t enough, so the cretin demanded his phone, a police report states. The kid forked that over, too, but his robber handed the mobile back and left, law enforcement sources said.
But the brigand changed his mind and came back for the cell, police said. After stealing the phone for the second time, the terror issued a strong warning, saying “I better not see you in this neighborhood again, and if you eat me out to anyone at Grady [an area high school], I’m going to f— you up,” according to a police report.
