Cops arrested four thugs suspected of shoving a cyclist to the ground and stealing his bike as he crossed the Williamsburg Bridge on June 27.

The teenaged suspects struck at around 12:05 am, knocking down the 23-year-old McKibben Street man and stealing his bike. Police nabbed the suspects later that day.

Stick up

A brutal thug slugged two men in the head with a wooden stick when they stepped out of a Grand Street bar on June 29.

The crook struck both victims on the side of their skulls as they exited the bar, which is at the corner of Union Avenue, before escaping by car at around 4 am. Both victims were taken to Woodhull Hospital for treatment, cops said.

Bladed bad guys

Police nabbed three men suspected in a June 28 armed mugging on Broadway.

The crooks held up their victim as he walked home from work between Keap and Hooper streets at around 10:15 pm, flashing a razor blade to convince him that they meant business, cops said.

The victim forked over $185 and the crooks fled, but cops arrested three suspects later that evening.

Paintball attack

Cops arrested a 21-year-old suspected of shooting a driver with a paintball gun on June 30.

The crook fired at his victim at around 4:30 pm, striking him in the arm as he drove down White Street between McKibben and Boerum streets. The shot left the victim bruised, but cops nabbed the suspect later that day.

Cellphone snatch

Two crooks in white T-shirts stole a Sidekick cellphone from a 22-year-old woman at the entrance of Cooper Park on June 30.

The thieves grabbed the phone from the woman’s fingers as she sat at the park’s entrance at around 10:30 am, escaping from the park, which is at the corner of Morgan Avenue and Sharon Street, with the fancy phone.
