Two goons looted $5,000 from an Avenue U store on Sept. 24.

The victim told police they were behind the counter when the perps wearing gloves and face mask entered the store near E. 16th Street through the back door at 10:30 pm, when they snatched the cash and fled, cops said.


Some home invader stole a woman’s duffle bag from an Avenue W apartment on Sept. 25.

The victim told police she was in the bedroom of her apartment near E. Third Street at 12:50 pm, when the crook grabbed a duffle bag with her laptop charger and ran into the lobby, police said.

The victim followed the goon into the lobby and demanded her property back, and the perp returned it before fleeing, cops said.
