Bad fortune

Cops arrested a 16-year-old boy who they say robbed a Chinese restaurant on Fulton Street at gunpoint on Jan. 8.

The youngster allegedly swiped a tip jar from the counter of the eatery near Washington Avenue at 1:35 pm and turned to flee the scene, police said. When an employee gave chase, the suspect turned, pulled from his waistband what looked like a handgun, and said “Stop following me or I’ll shoot,” according to a report.

Officers canvassed the area and found the accused kid nearby, a report says.

Anybody home?

A man was arrested after he allegedly tricked a woman into coming out of a Grand Avenue apartment on Jan. 10 to attack and rob her, according to a report.

The victim was visiting her friend at the building near Putnam Avenue when she answered a knock on the door, cops said. A voice on the other side told her someone was trying to speak with her, and when she stepped out into the hall, the accused grabbed her by the neck, according to the authorities.

“B----, give me your phone,” he supposedly growled, then grabbed the device, cops said.

The victim chased the suspect outside and alerted a nearby cop, who caught up to the man, 45, at Grand Avenue and Fulton Street, then slapped the cuffs on him and recovered the phone, a report says.

Twin terror

A group of young ruffians jumped a pair of twin teachers outside a school on Clermont Avenue on Jan. 6, police said.

The teachers, twin brothers, were leaving the building between Park and Myrtle avenues at 6:30 pm when one of them overheard that two students were planning a fight, according to a report.

“I’m gonna call someone!” a 16-year-old supposedly yelled as her ran past.

Then a group of delinquents swarmed the teachers, punching them and kicking them, officers said.

The educators suffered facial and neck injuries, but refused medical treatment, per NYPD officials.

Dirty deed undone

A motorist acted quickly to save a stabbing victim on N. Portland Avenue in Fort Greene early on the morning of Jan. 10, cops said.

The victim flagged down a passing car at Park Avenue, telling his savior he had been “done dirty” and lifting up his shirt to reveal an eight-inch stab wound that was gushing blood, police said.

The passerby loaded the wounded man into his car and drove him to Woodhull Medical Center, where doctors immediately performed surgery, according to a report.

The man gave no information to cops, but upon canvassing the area near where he had been found, police found his car idling with keys in the ignition and blood stains covering the driver’s seat and driver’s-side door-panel, officers said.

Time to run

A villain robbed a woman at Dekalb Avenue on Jan. 5, according to the authorities.

The victim was heading in the direction of Clermont Avenue when the scoundrel approached and asked for the time, a report says. The woman said, “no,” but the punk bashed her in the head with a blunt object, knocking her to the ground, cops said.

The brute then rifled through her victim’s pockets, swiped her iPhone 6, and fled toward Willoughby Avenue on Clermont Avenue, officers said.

Games are for kids

A prowler struck an apartment on Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene on Jan. 6, cops said.

The sneak made it into the dwelling between Cumberland and S. Oxford streets using the rear fire escape, according to a report.

The crook absconded with a Play Station 3, its controllers, a Vaio laptop, a pair of sunglasses, a Wii, and four Wii controllers, a haul worth $1,799, police said.
