Wolf blitzers

Eight members of a teen wolfpack robbed another teen on Hicks Street on May 2.

The 18-year-old victim said he was near West Ninth Street at 9:45 pm, when a mob all clad in black hooded sweatshirts surrounded him, pushing him up against a wall and taking his cellphone, $15 wallet, and Nintendo DS Lite.

It is unclear if this is the same teen wolfpack that attacked former Brooklyn Paper reporter Andy Campbell in a now-legendary February incident.

Beastly burglar

Someone broke into a Court Street pet food store and roughed up two employees on May 3.

The victims said they were inside Beastly Bites, located near Luquer Street, at around 7:45 pm when the intruder entered, followed the pair — a 29-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man — and pummeled them in the head and body. Nothing was taken, and cops later arrested the violent dog.

Karate kid

A man pretending to be interested in the martial arts robbed a kickboxing studio on May 4.

The 27-year-old victim said that a man entered CKO Kickboxing, near Garnet Street, before noon and inquired about a membership. He later left, but the victim discovered $100 missing from the register.

When she watched the surveillance video, the mystery was solved.

Bottle boob

Someone threw a wine bottle at a teen on Henry Street on May 1.

The 16-year-old victim said he was near Pacific Street at 12:50 am when a thug hurled the vessel at him, striking him in the noggin, causing cuts and swelling.

Big Country from Bushwick says:
Why don't regular hardworking folks get guns and fight back. Take back the streets from these hoods and let them know enough is enough. I urge normal hard working citizens to take matters into your own hands!

Ron from Brooklyn says:
I don't encourage violence, but obviously the parents of the wolf pack are probably crackheads or in the prison system. Juvenile or not, enough is enough. These teens need to be sent to an adult prison and become cubs to the bear packs.
