Time for trouble

Three bandits robbed an unsuspecting bike rider after stopping him to ask for the time on Batchelder Street on Dec. 21, according to police reports.

Authorities say one of the crooks whipped out a silver revolver on the victim between Avenues V and W at 7:30 pm. The gun-wielding goon pulled out the silver firearm after asking the victim for the time, according to officers.

Pharmaceutical felon

A masked man toting a gun robbed a pharmacy on Nostrand Avenue on Dec. 21, according to authorities.

Police say the thief barged into the shop with a silver revolver between Avenues V and W at 5:35 pm. Officers say the cruel crook pointed the revolver at the victim and snatched $200 before fleeing on foot.

Hungry for cash

A trio of hungry heathens robbed a fast food delivery driver on Nostrand Avenue on Dec. 23, an officer stated.

Cops say one of the thieves pointed a silver firearm at the delivery driver between Avenues V and W at 2:20 am. The bandits stole $15 from the victim, then fled towards Avenue W.

Cab chaos

Three men robbed a senior citizen taxi driver at gunpoint and stole the driver’s cash and other possessions on Avenue V on Dec. 27, cops say.

The thieves hopped into the taxi near Brown Street on 9 am, according to authorities. Police say when the driver reached the men’s destination, one of the perps pulled a pistol and demanded cash.

Reports say when the driver refused, the crook hit him in the head with the gun and then stole the driver’s Social Security card, driver’s license, cellphone, and $200.

Authorities say the suspects all fled the scene.
