A scary hood robbed a man at gunpoint on First Street on Jan. 9 — getting away with $300.

The gunman approached his victim between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at around 6:30 pm and said, “Hey buddy, give me your money. I’m not gonna hurt you.”

That promise, however, was belied by the metal piece he brandished in his hand.

After the mugging, the thug fled.

Head case

A savage punk slammed a teenager in the head with a lunchroom-style tray at a Fifth Avenue pizza joint on Jan. 8, sending the girl to the hospital.

The man was arguing with the teen in the pizzeria — which is at the corner of 11th Street — at 3 am when he suddenly struck her.

The girl said she did not know her tray-sailant.

No-good chiseler

A burglar used a chisel to break into a 12th Street apartment, snagging a sweet gaming system sometime between Dec. 24 and Jan. 5.

The handy hood chiseled open the lock of the apartment — which is at the corner of Eighth Avenue — and walked off with a 32-inch TV, a Nintendo Wii and four games. The tenant noticed the crime when he returned from an extended vacation.

Cig run gone bad

A hooligan busted into a fashionable woman’s car on Garfield Place on Jan. 3 and grabbed a pile of designer accessories.

The Park Sloper had parked in front of a grocery store between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 12:30 am to buy a pack of smokes. While she was inside, the hood stole a Gucci watch and bracelet, a pair of Dior sunglasses, a Club Monaco handbag and $200.
