Knife work

A group of thugs robbed two men at knifepoint in separate incidents minutes apart on July 19 on Lorimer Street.

In the first case, the victim told cops that he was between Devoe and Ainslie streets at 3:20 am when a man approached, put the knife against the man’s throat and said, “Let’s make this easy.”

He then rifled the man’s pockets as his two cronies stood watch.

The thieves got away with a Samsung phone and a wallet with $25.

Forty minutes later, the same armed-and-dangerous trio grabbed a man from behind on Bushwick Avenue between Ainslie and Powers streets.

In this case, one perp held a knife to the victim’s throat as he snatched an iPod and an unknown amount of cash from the man’s pockets before fleeing with his two partners.

Where: 537 Lorimer Street between Devoe and Ainslie streets
