Two against one

A nogoodnik cut a guy’s face while a second baddie held him in a chokehold so they could steal his backpack on E. 12th Street on Nov. 8.

The 23-year-old victim told police he was near Avenue Z at about 6:30 pm when the two jerks came up to him and one held him down while the other scratched his face with a box cutter, causing minor cuts, and then swiped his backpack with his Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, Apple iPad two, and a T-shirt inside.

Bike switch

A jerk stole a woman’s bicycle from the garage in her backyard on E. 23rd Street sometime overnight on Nov. 10, police said.

The woman told police a baddie entered the back of her Avenue R home through her unlocked gate and swiped her green and black Giant bike from her garage, which was also open and unlocked, sometime between 9:30 pm and 7:30 am the next day.

The punk left a Fuji bicycle in front of her home, according to authorities.

Teen trouble

Cops cuffed three teens for hopping on a school bus without permission near E. 10th Street on Nov. 12.

The three teenage guys remained on the bus near Quentin Road at 5:45 pm, police said.
