Came for the money

Police cuffed a guy for stabbing two victims and threatening to shoot them inside a Gates Avenue apartment on Dec. 1, police said.

The 50-year-old victim told cops the suspect showed up at the front door of the building near St. James Place at about 11:30 am and said “I came here because you owe (someone) money,” while brandishing a gun he pointed at the victim, according to authorities.

The victim tried to take the gun but the 27-year-old suspect grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed one victim in the hand and another in the leg, cops said.

Masked marauders

A pair of punks threatened a guy with a gun and stole his wad of cash on Steuben Street on Nov. 28, police said.

The victim told cops he was making a delivery near Park Avenue at about 7 pm when the two louts wearing ski masks took out two guns and grabbed $200 from him, according to authorities.

Packing backpacks

Some villains stole a guy’s backpack inside a Willoughby Street park on Nov. 29, police said.

The victim was walking in the green space near Saint Edwards Street at about 9:15 pm when the rogues threatened him with a knife, punched him in the face, and demanded he hand over his bag, according to authorities.

The punks ran off with the victim’s bag with his passport and credit cards inside it, officials said.

Bad job

A bruiser slammed a guy’s head against the wall at a Hall Street construction site on Nov. 30, police said.

The 20-year-old victim told police the villain, who is his employer, grabbed his throat and repeatedly pushed his head against the wall near Park Avenue at about 3:30 pm, cops said.

Stick it to him

Some good-for-nothing hit a guy with a broomstick outside his apartment on Putnam Avenue on Dec. 1, police said.

The victim told cops he had gone over to his neighbor’s house near Irving Place to talk to him about an annoyance, and when the jerk opened the door, he struck the victim in the face with a broomstick, according to authorities.
