Villains rob man at knifepoint

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Close to home

Two creeps mugged a man at knifepoint on 96th Street after following him from the train on April 22, according to cops.

The victim told police that he was exiting the 95th Street R train station at 10:35 pm when he noticed the men were following him. When he reached his home between Third and Fourth avenues, they stopped him, flashed a knife, and demanded he hand over his MacBook, cellphone, and wallet — a value of $2,124.

Bashing Staten Island

A jerk smashed the window and mirror of a Staten Island man’s Mercedes-Benz on 13th Avenue on April 28.

Mirror, mirror

A thug busted a man’s the mirror of a man’s car parked on 13th Avenue on April 28.

Real audio-philes

Two burglars broke into a Fort Hamilton Parkway electronics store and ran off with $122,000 in gadgets on April 27.

Bad apple

A bandit stole $1,400 in Apple gear from a Bay Ridge Avenue apartment on April 29.

The victim told police that he left his pad between Third and Fourth avenues at 2:40 pm, and returned at 5 pm. That was enough time for someone to get his hands on the victim’s MacBook Pro and iPhone.
