Nerd heist

Cops arrested a suspect later that day.

Cell reception

Two stick-wielding punks held up a man for his cellphone on 20th Avenue on Feb. 13.

The victim told cops that he was near 66th Street at 10:10 pm when the thugs approached him and demanded his phone.

One man grabbed the victim by his neck, while the other wielded a stick.

Once bitten

A shoplifter bit a security guard while trying to make his getaway from the Bay Parkway Kohl’s on Feb. 7, say police.

Store owners told cops that the man was trying to leave the store near Bensonhurst Park at 9:30 am with clothing and jewelry that he had stolen.

When the guard tried to stop the man, he allegedly bit the employee on the forearm. Cops then arrested him.
