Two gun-toting crooks shot a 35-year-old man in the knee during a vicious Sept. 28 mugging.
The thugs punched the victim in the head as he walked past the corner of Marcy Avenue and Borinquen Place on his way to a restaurant at around 11:30 pm.
“Give me everything you got,” one of the brutal robbers said before firing at the unarmed victim.
The bad guys grabbed the victim’s watch, bracelet and $430 and drove off in a Nissan van, and the victim was treated in Woodhull Hospital.
A knife-wielding mugger tried to stab a 28-year-old woman during a brutal robbery on Devoe Street on Sept. 26.
The cruel crook — who was wearing an orange shirt at the time of the attack — confronted his victim on the block between Lorimer and Leonard streets at around 9:45 pm.
“Give me your purse or I will kill you,” he said before attempting to slash her across the stomach.
The stab was off target, and the victim — who escaped with just a scratch — handed over her purse, which contained a cellphone, credit cards, an ID, and $10.
