What a spin!

A brute and his accomplice swiped a fidget spinner from a Nostrand Avenue store on May 28 and beat up a teen who tried to stop them, police said.

The baddie grabbed the $20 stress-relieving toy from the store near Avenue T at about 3 pm, and when a 17-year-old boy confronted him, he hit the teen in the face, causing a cut on the right side of his face, according to authorities.

Another punk then whacked the victim in the head with a broom, officials said.

While she was sleeping

A nogoodnik broke into a woman’s E. 26th Street home sometime overnight on May 27 and stole her purse, police said.

The woman told police the intruder climbed through a window in her home near Kings Highway while she was sleeping sometime between 11 am and 7 am, and grabbed her bag from on top of the radiator, according to authorities.

The baddie ran off with the bag containing a debit card, credit card, gold earrings, and cash, police said. The cur charged $40 to her credit card at about 4 am, officials said.

Tip thief

Cops cuffed a guy who they say stole cash from a tip jar inside an 86th Street store on May 21.

The suspect took out the $20 from the jar on top of the counter inside the W. Seventh Street store a little after midnight, according to authorities.
