Sore loser

A goon whacked a man with a pool cue on Kings Highway on Nov. 14, said police.

The man told cops that he was in a restaurant playing pool between 83rd and 84th streets at 9:15 pm when the baddie hit him with the stick, cutting him above his right eye.

The nogoodnik fled in an unknown direction, authorities reported.

Treasure trove

A rapscallion broke into a man’s 83rd Street apartment and plundered a gold bar and coins on Nov. 14, said police.

The man told officers he returned from out of town to his apartment between 18th and 19th avenues at 7 am to discover the gold was gone.

There was no sign of forced entry, but the man believes the raider may have gained access through the kitchen window, officials said.

Chair assault

A brawler beat a man with a chair and robbed him on Kings Highway on Nov. 19, said police.

The man told police he was walking home between W. Ninth and W. 10th streets at 6 am when the brute struck him several times with the chair, causing cuts and bruises to his forehead, nose, and right hand, officials said.

The baddie swiped $500 from the man before fleeing on Kings Highway, police said.

Would-be carjacker

The witness positively identified the man, and upon searching the man, officers discovered he was in possession of a crack pipe, authorities said.
