Armed robbery

Some lowlife robbed a Jay Street donut joint on Sept. 26.

The manager told police the pistol-packing perp barged into the store near Willoughby Street demanding cash at 5:50 am, before fleeing with around $250

Begging — and choosing

Two jerks asked a man for a dollar before robbing him on Dekalb Avenue on Sept. 28.

The victim told police the two bandits pulled a knife on him and took his wallet and medication, which included Xanax and Ambien , near Fulton Street around 7:20 p.m.

Mr. Knife Guy

A villain robbed a guy at knifepoint on Fourth Avenue on Sept. 24.

The victim told police he was unlocking his bike when the wretch held a silver knife to his stomach and told him, “Give me what you have,” between Bergen Street and St. Marks Place at 4:10 am.

The bandit then grabbed the guy’s wallet and bolted westbound on Bergen Street, cops said.

Five-finger discount

Cops arrested a man for allegedly trying to fight his way out of a Fulton Street retailer with $29 worth of clothes on Sept. 25.

An employee told police that the suspect threw some punches while attempting to take off with the merchandise near Duffield Street around 3:45 p.m.

The cops arrested the man a few minutes later, slapping him with a felony robbery charge.

A call for help

Some good-for-nothing stole a man’s phone as he exited a Willoughby Street train station on Sept. 25.

The victim told police that the thief asked to borrow his phone at the station near Bridge Street at 1:10 am, but when the victim asked for his cell back, the perp snarled “Give me your pin or I’m going to fight you.”
