A tag team of thieves stole the wallet from a bicyclist on Nevins Street on June 11, after stopping him for a cigarette.

The 39-year-old victim told cops that he was near Atlantic Avenue when a thug stopped him and asked, “Do you have a cigarette?”

The man said no and got back on his bike. That’s when the crook yanked him off his two-wheeler and he hit the ground. “If you don’t have a cigarette, give me what you have!” the thief demanded.

Two shady accomplices held onto the victim’s bike, so the man handed over his wallet. The devious troika made off with two credit cards, $100 and a Macy’s credit card.

Where: Nevins Street and Atlantic Avenue
