Baddie cries wolf

A criminal threatened a guy with a handgun to make him fork over his cellphone on Oriental Boulevard on April 26, police said.

The victim told police he was walking to the train station near Ocean Avenue at 2:30 pm when the baddie came up to him and accused him of beating up his sister, officials said.

If the victim didn’t hand over his iPhone 6, the miscreant said, he would go get a handgun from his car, according to authorities. The victim gave the malefactor his phone and he fled, officials said.

Over a few dollars

A nogoodnik slashed a guy in the face with a box cutter over $4 on Avenue X on April 28, police said.

The 32-year-old guy told police he was near Coyle Street at about 8 am when the known brute, who goes by the nickname “K,” jumped out of his car and slashed him in the face, according to authorities.

The victim owed the malefactor $4, according to authorities. The good-for-nothing fled, and emergency responders took the victim to Coney Island Hospital, police said.
