Faux gun

Police cuffed one of two suspects who they say threatened and robbed a guy on Avenue U on June 25 by claiming to have a gun, police said.

The guy told authorities that the suspects came up to him near W. Ninth Street at about 9:45 pm and demanded he give them his gold chain he was wearing. But when he refused, one of them said he would go get a gun, officials said.

The suspects swiped the guy’s gold chain necklace with a cross on it, wallet with $180 inside, and an identification card, police said.

Down on the ground

A nogoodnik threw a guy down on the floor and stole his wallet on E. 14th Street on June 29, police said.

The 66-year-old victim told police he was near Avenue Y at about 9:30 pm when the baddie came up to him from behind and shoved him down onto the floor. While he was down the cur grabbed his wallet from him with his business cards, Medicare card, insurance, and other identification cards inside, according to authorities.

The jerk fled towards Avenue Z, and the victim was left with abrasions to his leg and hand from being pushed to the ground. The malefactor left behind two cellphones at the scene that police are investigating, officials said.
