A pair of heavily armed muggers is running wild in and around Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO, robbing at least three men in a six-day blitz last week.

Police said the first crime was on Oct. 12, when two perps toting a semi-automatic weapon mugged a man who was walking to the F-train station on York and Jay streets in DUMBO at around 2:50 pm.

The crooks, one wearing a ski mask and one clean shaven, put the gun to the 22-year-old victim’s chest and stole his cellphone and digital camera.

Three days later, a gun-toting team got another cellphone and a wallet from a man on Henry Street near Joralemon Street at around 11:20 pm.

And two days after that, two men mugged a man at gunpoint on Bridge Street near Prospect Street — though all they got was two measly dollars in the noon crime.

In this case, the devilish duo followed the 39-year-old man at around 11:50 am when one perp pulled out a black firearm from his waistband, pointed it at the victim, and mugged the poor guy for his $2.

The gun-toting black-jean-and-sweatshirt-wearing crooks also got cards and ID.

Police are investigating all three crimes in hopes of linking the gunmen.
