A gun-wielding trio of robbers busted into a community garden on Henry Street near Fourth Place and held up three gardeners on Oct. 22, police said.
The men entered the garden at 5:15 pm and flashed a silver handgun at the green thumbs, a 56-year-old woman, a 24-year-old man and a 29-year-old man.
“Give me your stuff,” one of the thugs barked, while another guarded the entrance to the green space.
Apparently, money does grow on trees because the garden-robbing goons got away with $790 in cash, as well as a watch and two gold bracelets.
They fled west across the Cole Street footbridge to Red Hook, police said.
Three men in dark hooded sweatshirts robbed a restaurant on Hamilton Avenue near Clinton Street on Oct. 25, police said.
The men strode into the restaurant at 2:50 pm with their hoods pulled over their faces. Holding a black handgun in the air, one of the thugs ordered a 37-year-old employee to give him the money in the safe, “or I’ll shoot,” he said.
The robbers fled in a blue car with $300 in cash and a Samsung phone.
Three armed men attacked a woman walking home in Carroll Gardens on Oct. 21, police said.
The woman was on Nelson Street near Hicks Street at 8:15 pm when she felt a hard object against her back. When she turned to face her mugger, she saw the metal glint of a gun and screamed. The piercing sound sent the wannabe muggers running.
Two days later, the three suspects were arrested on Third Street near Clinton Street for the attempted robbery, police said. They were also charged with an Oct. 18 robbery.
