Bathroom break

A baddie slashed a guy with a knife and stole his cash in the bathroom of an Avenue U bar on Nov. 22, police said.

The victim told police he was at the bar near E. 12th Street at about 3 am when he went into the bathroom and the malefactor followed him in and said “Give me your money.” The knave took out his knife and the 40-year-old forked over an unknown amount of cash, according to authorities.

The good-for-nothing cut the guy on his head, arm, hand, and back, police said. The victim went to Coney Island Hospital with one of the bartenders, officials said.

Ripped right off his back

Cops cuffed two teens who they say beat up a 15-year-old boy and then swiped his jacket right off his body on Avenue V on Nov. 25.

The victim told police he was walking home on Van Sicklen Street at about 2:30 pm when the two suspects called him over. But when the victim approached the duo, they started hitting him in the face and head, causing him to fall over onto the ground, officials said.

The suspects ran their hands through the teen’s pockets and then took his black and white North Face Supreme Jacket off his body with his iPhone 6 in it, according to authorities. The suspects also ripped the teen’s white metal chain right off of his neck, police said.

While she was out

A crook broke into a woman’s apartment on Kings Highway on Nov. 22 and stole her jewelry and laptop while she was out, police said.

The 45-year-old woman told police she had left her apartment near Ocean Avenue at about 2:30 pm to go to the car dealership, and when she returned home about two hours later, saw her Chanel earrings, gold earrings, a gold ring, and her Apple laptop were missing.

The woman’s apartment door was locked when she got home, police said.

Transit thief

A jerk stole a wad of cash and a bunch of MetroCards from a Nostrand Avenue variety store sometime overnight on Nov. 25, police said.

The punk entered the store near Avenue Y through a front metal cover and stole $80 and $50 worth of MetroCards from the cash register sometime between 8:45 pm and 8:30 am the next day, according to authorities.

Scared away

Some baddie tried to break into a Nostrand Avenue restaurant on Nov. 25, police said.

The jerk went to the back of the store near Avenue Z at about 10 pm and started kicking the door in attempts to try to get in, according to authorities. The punk broke one of the locks but didn’t get inside and fled at about 10:30 pm, officials said.
