You’re kidding!

Two people were robbed by gunman in a hooded sweatshirt early on Dec. 1. Here are the details:

• The the first case, the 26-year-old victim told cops that she was between Washington and Underhill avenues when she was approached by the teenager, who brandished a small silver gun and said, “Give me all you got.” The lady handed over her expensive leather bag and fled.

• In the second case, the 27-year-old victim told cops that he was between Washington and Classon avenues at 1:30 am when a young crook meeting the same description and brandishing the same gun and said, “Do you have a phone? Give me everything you got.”

The victim handed over his Nokia phone and $25 before the crook fled.

Wheeled and dealed

Thieves removed the tires and rims from a car on Park Place on Dec. 2

The 46-year-old owner told cops that he parked between Underhill and Washington avenues at 4:20 am, returning at 2 pm to find his Toyota completely de-wheeled.


A sneaky crook swiped a bag from a woman at the supermarket on Vanderbilt Avenue on Nov. 29.

The 57-year-old victim told cops that she was inside the Met Foods between Park and Prospect places at 6 pm when she put her bag down. A half-hour later, it was gone.
