What knife kids

Cops arrested three teens for robbing a man at knifepoint on Sixth Avenue on Nov. 20.

The victim told police the teens ambushed him near Third Street at 1:35 am, with one of the suspects brandished a knife, while another demanded his wallet and phone, and the third acted as a lookout.

The kids fled with the victim’s stuff, but police stopped the suspects near Carroll Street following a search of the surrounding area, and, after the victim identified them as his robbers, they were found in possession of the guy’s valuables, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bicycle he left on the front yard of his Seventh Street home on Nov. 14.

The victim told police he parked his Trek bike outside his home between Third and Fourth avenues at 4 pm, but discovered it was stolen four days.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.

Kick off

Some crook made off with a man’s shoes he left in the hallway outside his Park Place apartment on Nov. 18.

The victim told police he left his Adidas outside the front door to his apartment in the building between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 2:10 pm, only to find out some creep had made off with them when he poked his head out the next day.

Wrong key

Some jerk keyed a man’s 2015 Buick he parked on Prospect Park West on Nov. 17.

The victim, 60, told police he parked his sedan between Seventh and Eighth streets at 8 am, and returned at the same time the next day to find a few nasty gashes carved into his four door.
