Turning the tables

Two goons tried to rob a 27-year-old at the corner of East 18th Street and Avenue U on July 26, but their victim had a surprise up his sleeve — his fist.

The victim told police he was nearing the corner at 3:15 pm when the two suspects rolled up in a black Lexus, asking him for the time.

He pulled out his Blackberry and rattled off the time and the thieves rolled off, only to come back a short time later on foot. One of the men had a Stiletto knife in his hand.

“Give me your Blackberry and everything you got,” the thief ordered.

But the victim didn’t relent.

Instead, he punched the thief in the face and ran off. The suspects ran off in the other direction, police said.
