Bank stick-up

A robber held up the Apple Bank on Manhattan Avenue on Jan. 20, scampering away with $1,096.

The robber entered the bank at 4:10 pm, approached a teller window and passed a note that read, “Give all the money or everybody dead.”

The perp then took the money in a black bag and fled towards Meserole Avenue.

Cell hell

A thief stole a woman’s phone on Skillman Avenue on Jan. 16.

The woman told cops that she was near Kingsland Avenue at 2 am, when a thug approached and flashed a knife.

“Give me your cellphone,” he said, prompting her to hand it over.
