Salon snake

Cops cuffed a 32-year-old guy for threatening a woman inside a Kings Highway salon and running off with a wad of cash from the register on June 15.

The employee told police the suspect entered the store near E. 19th Street at about 5:30 pm and said “Give me everything or you will get hurt,” and simulated having a weapon in his pants waist, but never showed one.

The suspect took $450 from the register and fled on Kings Highway, according to authorities.

Four against one

Four criminals attacked a man and grabbed his phone and wallet inside a park on E. 24th Street on June 16, police said.

The group of louts approached the victim in the green space near Avenue X at about 1:10 am and asked him for a lighter, but then they forcefully grabbed his wallet and iPhone from him, struck him, and said “Give me your s---,” according to authorities.

The malefactors fled into a nearby backyard with his cellphone and wallet with $40, a driver’s license, and credit card inside, officials said.

Double con artist

A goon threatened a teen on Kings Highway on June 17, telling him he had a gun, police said.

The 17-year-old victim told police he was walking to his doctor’s office near E. 26th Street at about 11 pm when the baddie came up to him and said, “Give me your money and don’t do anything stupid because I have a gun,” while grabbing his waist with his right hand.

The teen didn’t see a weapon and told the punk he didn’t have anything and patted himself down to prove it, according to authorities.

But then the nogoodnik told him, “It’s a prank, you’re on camera,” even though there were no cameras there, according to the victim. The fraudster then walked away empty-handed, police said.


A jerk swiped a woman’s bike from her garage on Ocean Avenue late on June 12, police said.

The 44-year-old woman told police she noticed her garage door near Avenue V was halfway open at at about 11:30 pm, and discovered some punk had fled with her bike, according to authorities.
