Cheap thieves

Two roustabouts held up a man at gunpoint and knifepoint on a Jan. 25 subway ride over the Manhattan Bridge — all for a measly $10 that left them in handcuffs anyway.

The victim told cops that as the Brooklyn-bound N train was crossing the bridge from Canal Street at around 4 am, one of the crooks approached him and asked, “What time is it?”

The perp then pressed a gun to the victim’s chest, while an accomplice poked a knife in his back and rifled through his wallet.

When the pair disembarked at DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, they ditched the gun in a trash can. Officer Robert White recovered both the pistol and the knife and slapped the cuffs on the two suspects.

Where: DeKalb Avenue at Flatbush Avenue Extension
