Cut it out

Police arrested a man who they say cut a teenager’s finger and robbed him on Stillwell Avenue on Oct. 23.

The victim told cops he was walking to school when two men allegedly approached him near 26th Avenue at 8:27 am, saying they had to talk to him, and then grabbed his arms, cut his finger on his right hand with a knife, and punched him in the stomach.

The suspects also allegedly stole the victim’s green Gucci belt, yellow metal chain, and electronics, according to police.

Police say the victim refused medical attention.

Bodega brute

Cops cuffed a man who allegedly threatened to shoot someone at a bodega on Mermaid Avenue on Oct. 25.

The man allegedly displayed a gun on his waistband, which was actually an air pistol, and said, “If you don’t give me $50 I will shoot you!” at the store near W. 33rd Street at 1 am, according to police.

Smoke break

Two men allegedly robbed a man on W. 16th Street on Oct. 26.

The victim told police he was smoking a cigarette near Bay 50th Street at 1:55 pm when the goons approached him, flashed a knife and said, “Give me the envelope of money.”

The victim attempted to flee, but dropped $441 in an envelope he had from cashing a check and the nogoodniks stole the money and fled, according to police.

Taxi fare thief

Police arrested a man who they say hit a taxi driver’s head with a bottle, causing a minor laceration, on Mermaid Avenue on Oct. 24.

The victim told cops the suspect allegedly refused to pay his taxi fare, struck him in the head, and broke his car’s driver’s side mirror near Stillwell Avenue at 11:05 pm.

Laptop lawbreaker

A bandit broke into a woman’s Brighton Third Walk home on Oct. 25 and stole her laptop.

The thief entered her home near Brighton Third Street at 7:30 am through her bedroom window, damaging it in the process, and stole her Asus laptop, police reported.

Wallet woes

Bandits swiped several wallets in separate incidents in the precinct this week. Here’s the rundown:

• A weasel stole a woman’s wallet and credit cards from her car on Benson Avenue on Oct. 25.

The victim left her car unlocked near Bay 43rd Street at 8:16 pm, when the cards were stolen, according to the police report.

• A sneak swiped a woman’s wallet at the Neptune Avenue subway station on Oct. 26.

The victim told police she swiped into the subway station near W. Sixth Street at 3:24 pm and halfway up the stairs, realized her wallet — including her green card, social security card, debit card, and $100 — was missing.

• A thief took a woman’s wallet while she was working at a Neptune Avenue store on Oct. 25.

The victim told police she was placed her wallet in a cubby at the market near W. 36th Street at 4 pm to work the register, and when she returned at 6 pm it was gone.
