Police brass

A knuckle-duster-wearing punk posing as a cop beat and mugged a man inside an apartment building on 63rd Street on June 21, authorities say.

The victim said he was waiting for his friend in the lobby of the building near 18th Avenue at 11 am when the goon came in and started barking orders.

“I am a cop, put your hands up,” the thug demanded.

The victim complied, and the savage pulverized him with the brass knuckles, then took his wallet with $85 in cash inside.
