Count it

Two thugs stole a man’s wallet on Schermerhorn Street on Oct. 21.

The victim said he was near Nevins Street at 6:35 pm when one of the thieves approached him and asked, “Waz up?”

Before he could answer, the men grabbed his wallet and ran off.

A robber stole $260 from a Fulton Street bank on Oct. 20.

A teller at the bank, between Boerum Place and Pearl Street, said the thief walked in at 3:30 pm and passed her a note demanding cash. She gave him the small sum, and he walked out with the stash.

Car jack
