Television taker

A knife-wielding thug swiped a television from an E. 95th Street home on Jan. 6, but didn’t have long to catch his favorite shows.

A tenant in the apartment, which is between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue J, was arguing with the would-be thief at noon when he pulled his knife.

“Don’t do anything,” the 24-year-old thug said. “I have people waiting at the corner for me.”

The victim did nothing and watched as the thief took the TV out of the apartment.

Cops caught up with the thief on Monday, charging him with robbery in the first degree.

Where: East 95th Street and Flatlands Avenue
