Knocked unconscious — in school!

A group of toughs jumped a 16-year-old inside Sheepshead Bay High School on Avenue X on May 18 — leaving the young man unconscious in a building hallway.

The victim told police that he was walking down the hallway at 12:15 pm when the thugs jumped him, bringing him to the floor.

The suspects punched and kicked their victim repeatedly, breaking the teen’s teeth after he blacked out.

Tasered

Two thugs armed with a Taser raided an 86th Street jewelry store on May 19 — but the plucky jeweler still managed to fight the two men off.

The victim was inside his store, which is near 20th Avenue, at 10:45 am when the thieves entered, pretending to be customers.

Seconds later, one of the men pulled his Taser and shot the jeweler, who shrugged off the shocks as he forced the two punks out of his shop.

Club shooting

A trigger-happy gunman let loose a barrage of shots outside of Club Evolution on 62nd Street in Bensonhurst on May 21 — sending a 30-year-old club hopper to the hospital.

Witnesses said that several people were arguing outside the club, which is near 16th Avenue, at 3:30 am when the unidentified gunman pulled his weapon and fired off six shots — hitting a man in the process.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Lutheran Medical Center for treatment. It was unclear, however, if he was the target.

Brighton boob

A 53-year-old man armed with a screwdriver was arrested on May 21 following a brawl on Brighton Seventh Street the day before.

The victim was standing near Oceanview Avenue at 11:55 pm when the thug attacked, punching him in the face, police said.

Lamped

A 22-year-old man injured his girlfriend on May 19 when he threw a lamp at her during an argument in their Voorhies Avenue apartment.

The lamp struck the 28-year-old woman in the face during the 8:45 pm argument in the home, which is near E. 24th Street.

Bilked of $18,000

Two con artists scammed a 76-year-old woman they met on Ocean Avenue on May 11 — utilizing one of the oldest tricks in the book.

The senior told police that she was nearing Avenue Y at 10 am when the suspects, two Hispanic women, approached, claiming that they had just found a bag of cash.

The duo were willing to share the cash with her, as long as she put up some money of her own — $18,000.

The senior fell for it, and took them to the nearest bank, where she withdrew the money.

The thieves took the senior home, then skedaddled after asking her to go inside and get a copy of her Con Edison bill, the victim told police.
