Backpack burglars

Two baddies robbed a man on Surf Avenue on March 25.

One of the perps wielded a knife as he approached the victim between W. 20th and W. 21st streets, while the other grabbed his backpack before the two took off around 10 p.m., according to cops.

Tag team

Pillagers robbed a man at a Neptune Avenue gas station on March 29.

The victim was at the station between 36th and 37th street at 1:30 a.m. when one of the perps punched him, causing cuts and bruising to his face, police said. A female baddie then stole the victim’s phone and wallet from his pocket while he was laying on the ground, according to cops.

Parking punk

A punk stabbed a man during an argument over a parking spot on Coney Island Avenue on March 27.

The victim pulled his car into the spot between Brighton Beach Avenue and 10th Street around 10:45 p.m. when the baddie demanded he move, according to the report. The victim refused, and the perp stabbed him in the stomach, causing only minor harm, said cops.

Subway swiper

A thief robbed a sleeping subway passenger aboard a Coney Island-bound N train on March 27.

The victim told cops he boarded the train in Manhattan, but fell asleep before his DeKalb Avenue destination. He woke up around 3 a.m. at the Stillwell Avenue station in Coney Island, and discovered his backpack was missing and his pant pocket was cut, officers reported.

Credit card swindler

A fraudster used a man’s stolen credit card to steal $873.50 at a Mermaid Avenue deli on March 25.

The victim noticed his card was missing, and went to a bank on the corner of Mermaid Avenue and W. 30th Street, where he discovered that someone had used the card to withdraw the cash from the deli near W. 29th Street, according to authorities.
