Cops cuffed two suspects who they say tore away a man’s gold chain at gunpoint on Irwin Street on Oct. 25 — one of whom they allege was carrying heroin.

The victim said he was near Shore Boulevard at 3:42 pm when the defendants came up behind him and showed the pistol.

“I’m not playing with you. I’ll shoot you,” the victim said one of the suspects told him. “It’s a robbery, don’t f------ look at me.”

The duo then allegedly yanked the chain from the man’s throat and ordered him to walk away without looking back.

Authorities said they picked the pair up when they attempted to hock the necklace shortly afterward — and discovered a bag of smack in one of the defendant’s underwear.

Trash or treat

Police picked up a man who they say assaulted a city Sanitation worker and stole his badge on Shell Road on Oct. 28.

The victim told police he had his garbage truck parked at the corner of Avenue Y at 3:25 am when the accused ran up and kicked the side of the city vehicle. The defendant then allegedly reached into the window and grabbed the san man’s shirt and ripped his badge off, before fleeing.
