Not the Pop Tarts!

A heartless gun-toting thug held up a man on the 4 train for his Playstation device, a “Cake Mania” video game, and tragically, even his Pop Tarts on Aug. 1.

The pastry-loving victim told cops that he and the perp were the only ones in the train car, which was at the Atlantic Avenue stop near Flatbush Avenue, at about 4:30 am. They conversed for a while, but the hungry scoundrel had other plans — he lifted up his shirt to reveal a gun in his pants and said, “If you do anything stupid, I’ll shoot you.”

Then the bandit took the electronics and the tarts, valued at $2, and fled.

Where: Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue
