Slash and run

A violent thug attacked a man with a knife and swiped his cellphone on the D train on Jan 31.

The victim told cops that he boarded the train near at 86th Street and Bay Parkway at 1:27 am. When the jerk demanded the victim’s cellphone, the victim refused, so the thug slashed his leg and grabbed his phone, making his escape at the next station.

What a dummy

Hustlers conned a man into giving up more than $2,000 and a cache of electronics in return for a share in their phoney lottery haul on 21st Avenue on Jan. 26.

The victim told cops that two men approached him at 11:30 am near 86th Street, asking for directions. They told him that they had won the lottery and would share it, but only if he gave them cash.

The bone-headed victim obliged, handing over $1,050, then took them to his house, where he gave them another $1,000, a MacBook and an iPhone.

The grifters handed over his share: a sock full of wadded up newspaper.
