Terror trio

A trio of thugs terrorized two men in rapid succession in Red Hook on Feb. 15 — but the youngest of the teen terrors was collared after the second crime, cops said.

In the first incident, the threesome surrounded a man on Dikeman Street between Richards and Van Brunt streets at around 8:05 pm.

“Give me everything,” one of the teens said while another showed off a black handgun.

The 32-year-old man refused, and the thugs fled without taking anything.

But an hour later, a group that cops believe is the same terror trio surrounded a 43-year-old man at the corner of Coffey and Conover streets and, after showing off the gun again, stole his bicycle.

Officer Keith Dsouza later saw a 14-year-old riding the bike and promptly collared him. The two other thieves remain at large.
