Pizza punks

Two men mugged a pizza delivery man of his grub, cash, and even raided his car on Bay 11th Street on June 22.

The victim told police that while delivering a pie between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at 1 am, two brutes branished handguns and demanded cash and his phone. The devious duo demanded the man’s cellphone password, which the pizza boy reluctantly gave, according to a police report. The ruffians proceeded to ransack the man’s car and capped the caper by bodyslamming the victim to the sidewalk.

The goons fled the scene with the goods in an unkown direction, police said.

Sticky fingers

A sneaky theif swiped a woman’s wallet while she was preoccuiped getting her MetroCard to work at a turnstile at the Bay Parkway train station on June 20.

The woman told police that she was having trouble getting her transit card to work at 2:30 pm when she was approached by a man who offered to swipe her in for a fee. The woman declined and approached the station booth, where the clerk fixed her card, police said.

But once the woman swiped into the station, she reached into her purse to place her card back into her wallet and discovered that her wallet was gone, authorities said.

Knife to meet you

A goon pointed a knife at a woman and grabbed her phone on 21st Avenue on June 21.

The woman was seated on a bench between 72nd and 73rd streets at 11:30 pm when a cretin sat beside her and brandished a blade, police said.

Subway raiders

The nogoodniks fled the platform in an unkown direction, authorities.
