N-ot nice!

Three thugs robbed a man as she walked home from the subway station on Sept. 29.

The 32-year-old victim exited the 18th Avenue N-train subway station just before 2 am. As he approached the corner of Bay Ridge Avenue, three men walked up to him. One pulled out a knife and held it to the victim’s chest while the other two rifled through his pockets, grabbing his wallet and phone. The suspects then fled with $60 and various cards.

Pocket rocket

Someone cornered and robbed a man as he walked down 68th Street on Sept. 29.

The victim, 30, told cops he was between 20th and 21st avenues, just after midnight when a man walked up to him and threw him down to the ground. The thug then ripped the victim’s pants pockets off, grabbed his wallet and ran down the street.

Teen wasted

A thug hit and robbed a teenager as she walked home from school on Sept. 29.

The victim, 16, was walking down 65th Street at around 1:30 pm. When she stopped to cross the street at the corner of 20th Avenue, a man walked up behind her, punched her in the back of the head and grabbed her phone out of her hand before running the opposite direction.

Stop that bike!

A thief on a bike robbed a woman as she walked down 86th Street on Sept. 26.

The victim, 29, was walking home from the store at around 8:30 pm. At the corner of 23rd Avenue, a man on a bicycle sped past her, grabbing her purse and pedaling away with her phone as well as various debit and credit cards.

Busted up

At least two neighborhood homes were burgled last week.

• Someone broke into a house on 78th Street between 16th and 17th avenues on Sept. 27.

The 22-year-old owner of the home told cops she was gone overnight. When she returned at 7 am, someone had broken one of her basement windows, and stolen electronics from inside.

• Two days later, someone broke into a West Fifth Street home when the 45-year-old victim left to go for a job at 7 am. When she returned, she found the front door of the home, which is between 18th and 19th avenues, open and jewelry missing from inside.
