One really lousy commute

A gun-wielding perp mugged two F-train commuters in separate brutal incidents on May 7 at the Carroll Street station.

The first victim, 56, told cops that she had just gotten off the Coney Island-bound train at around 8:45 am at the President Street end of the station when a man grabbed her purse, pulled a gun on her and said, “Shut up or I’ll kill you.”

He got the purse, which contained $40 and a pair of glasses.

But he wasn’t done, yet.

About five minutes later, the same thug approached a second victim, pulling a gun and dragging her to the ground before saying, “Shut the f— up!”

This time, he got the 26-year-old woman’s iPod and Droid phone.
