Struck in the street

A goon stabbed a guy in the leg on Sheepshead Bay Road on Sept. 26, police said.

The 26-year-old victim told police he was walking near Emmons Avenue a little after midnight when the brute came up to him and asked “Do you have money?” But when the guy didn’t respond, the bruiser knifed him in the upper thigh with a cutting instrument, according to authorities. And the victim also cut his hand when he tried to fight off the savage, who fled, officials said. Emergency responders transported the victim to NYU Langone-Brooklyn Hospital, police said.

Rude customer

Cops cuffed a woman for swiping an item for sale from a merchant on E. 16th Street and then striking the victim in the face on Sept. 27, police said.

The woman tried to steal something from the merchant near Kings Highway at about 5:15 pm and when confronted, smacked the victim across the face, according to authorities.

Four against one

Four toughs attacked a guy and stole his wallet on Brigham Street on Sept. 28, police said.

The 69-year-old victim told police he was walking near Avenue U at about 9:30 pm when one of the goons came up to him and said “I need money.” The guy replied he didn’t have any money, and when he turned around, the ruffian struck him from behind and then three other punks joined in and grabbed his wallet with four credit cards in it, according to authorities. The knaves later charged about $300 on one of the cards, police said.

Bad trio

Three ruffians attacked a guy, threatened him with a knife, and stole his phone on Avenue V on Sept. 29, police said. The 23-year-old told police he was walking to the bus with his girlfriend near Nostrand Avenue at about 7:45 pm when the trio of criminals came up to them and started punching him in the face. One of the louts struck the victim in the head with a scooter, causing a cut on his forehead, according to authorities. And another one of the attackers threatened the victim with a knife, swinging it but missing him, officials said. The victim dropped his pricey Samsung Galaxy phone and the punks ran off with it, according to authorities.

Left a trace

Some malefactor swiped cash and checks from a Gerritsen Avenue building sometime between Sept. 26 and Oct. 1, police said.

The victim told police the thief, who left a cigarette butt inside the building near Florence Avenue, stole cash, a speaker, and banking checks worth a total of $2,060 from a back room only a building manager has access to.

Tool thief

A punk swiped a bunch of tools from a construction site on Ocean Avenue sometime from Sept. 27 and Sept. 30, police said.

The victim told police when he left the site near Avenue T, all the tools were there and accounted for, but when he returned three days later, the door was open and some punk had run off with thousands of dollars worth of copper pipes, screws, tools, wires, outlets, switches, and breaker boxes, according to authorities.
