Thief thwart

Two sticky-fingered goons tried to rob a 32-year-old man on Adelphi Street on Jan. 20, but ended up with nothing.

The victim was talking on his cellphone as he neared Greene Avenue at 1:15 pm when the thieves crept up behind him, trying to snake the wallet out of his victim’s back pocket.

When the victim turned around to brush the thieves away, one of them tried to take his phone — but botched that attempt as well.

Where: 356 Adelphi Street
