Cops caught two tweens suspected of jumping a classmate as she walked home from school on April 15.

The 11- and 12-year-old girls trailed their victim until she reached the corner of Keap Street and Division Avenue at around 3:30 pm — then they struck, leaving the victim with that most agonizing of injuries: a broken ankle.

Police nabbed the adolescent crooks later that day.

Motel molest

A depraved crook drugged a woman in a Manhattan bar and sexually assaulted her in a Bushwick Avenue hotel on April 17.

The woman awoke in the hotel, which is on the corner of Stagg Street, at around 8 am with no recollection of how she got there.

She told cops that the last thing she remembers was sipping drinks with a stranger at a bar on Eighth Avenue in Manhattan at around midnight.

Taking a ride

Crooks thought they’d get a free ride when they stole thousands of Metrocards from an armored truck maintenance building on Scholes Street, but the burglars turned out with a whole lot of nothing.

The thieves broke into the armored car garage between 9 am on March 21 and 5 pm on April 3, snatching 3,576 Metrocards that would have been worth $133,440 — if the company hadn’t deactivated the cards once they were stolen.
