The lout then took the cab driver’s car keys and made a run for it, cops said.

Cyclist tackler

Police arrested a teen who they say violently robbed a bike courier on Classon Avenue on May 8.

Cops then arrested the suspect at Lafayette Avenue, between Tompkins and Marcy avenues some 20 minutes later, according to authorities.

Group robbery

Three villains robbed two teens at the Nevins Street train station on May 9.

One 14-year-old victim told cops that he was at the station near Flatbush Avenue at 4:30 p.m. when the baddies walked up to them and demanded that they hand over their cellphones, with one nogoodnik threatening he had a knife.

The rogues took the kids’ phones, MetroCard, and college identification before fleeing the scene, officers reported.
