A small haul

Two malefactors broke into a man’s E. 14th Street house and stole his cash on Oct. 22, police said.

The 29-year-old victim told police the bad duo pushed their way into his house near Avenue X at about 10:38 am, brandished a gun, and demanded cash. Another resident of the house was upstairs, and when he rushed down the two punks also threatened him with the gun and again demanded money, according to authorities. The nogoodniks stole $8 in cash and fled, officials said.

Cashed out

Some crook broke into a Quentin Road clothing store and made off with a hefty haul of cash from a safe sometime overnight on Oct. 15, police said.

An employee told police that she had left the store near E. 12th Street at about 7 pm and when she returned the next morning at 10:30 am, noticed that an intruder had gotten into the safe and swiped about $10,000 in cash that was inside, investigators said.

Fearsome foursome

Four snakes threatened a guy with a gun, punched him and stole his cash on McDonald Avenue on Oct. 16, police said.

The 28-year-old guy told police he was walking near Avenue S at about 4:15 am when the villainous quartet came up to him. One brandished a gun while the others started taking his belongings out of his pocket, officials said. One of the punks also hit him in the face, and the group then fled with his cash, keys, wallet, backpack, and credit card, officials said. Emergency responders transported the victim to Coney Island Hospital, police said.

Road rage

A group of five toughs threatened to kill a man, then stole his cash and laptop while inside a car on E. 12th Street on Oct. 16, police said.

The victim told police he hopped inside the car near Avenue Z with three of the villains when two others approached from either side while the car was stopped at about 8 pm. The goons threatened him with deadly physical force and grabbed his cash, credit cards, and Macbook Air worth thousands, and then pushed him out of the car and sped off, according to authorities.

Street swipe

A jerk swipe a guy’s cash on Avenue Y on Oct. 21, police said.

The 39-year-old told police he was walking near Haring Street when the malefactor came up to him and asked for cash.

The crook fled with the guy’s bag and cash worth a total of $30, officials said.
