Threaten and take

Two baddies stole a guy’s phone and wallet on Bridge Street on Nov. 25, police said.

The victim told cops one of the nogoodniks threatened him with a black gun with a wooden handle at the corner of Water Street a little before midnight and grabbed his iPhone, car keys, belt, wallet, and cash.

The good-for-nothing then tossed it to all to another snake and both fled on Bridge Street towards Plymouth Street where they hopped on bikes and took off towards John Street, according to authorities.

Subway scoundrel

A bunch of reprobates assaulted a guy and then swiped his phone and headphones in a Joralemon Street subway station on Nov. 26, police said.

The victim told cops four of the baddies who were dancing inside the station near Court Street asked him for money at about 7:30 pm when he refused and they assaulted him, and then another malefactor grabbed his cellphone and headphones, according to authorities. The snakes got off the train at Borough Hall, and the victim was left with injuries to his head and face, cops said.

Beat it

A knave threatened to shoot a teen and then stole his headphones while in a Schermerhorn Street subway station on Nov. 29, police said.

The 14-year-old victim told cops he was heading to school on the subway near Hoyt Street at about 10:40 am when the cur came up to him on the platform from behind, told him he had a gun and not to call the police, and then grabbed his Beats headphones off his head, officials said. The lout fled towards Bond Street, according to authorities.

Three against one

Cops cuffed three teens for threatening a guy and stealing his cellphone on Joralemon Street on Dec. 2, police said.

The 24-year-old victim told cops he was near Hicks Street at about 9:30 pm when the trio surrounded him and shoved an unknown hard object against the back of his head. The suspects grabbed his iPhone and fled on Henry Street towards Hunts Lane, according to authorities.

No tip

A weasel stole a woman’s purse from her car parked on Bridge Street on Dec. 1, police said.

The victim told cops she left her four-wheeler unlocked while making a delivery near Willoughby Street at about 1 pm, and when she returned about 10 minutes later, noticed some sneak had taken her bag with cash and a credit card inside it, according to authorities.
