At least four robbers used blades this week to intimidate their victims and make off with their cash. Here’s a horrific recap:

• A mugger with a blade confronted a man in front of his home on Grand Street between Humboldt Street and Graham Avenue, at around 5:30 am on March 13, cops say.

After the blond thug demanded, “Give me everything or I’ll stick you,” the victim handed over $120.

• A robber demonstrated the power of bargaining tools on Bushwick Avenue between Maujer and Ten Eyck streets on March 13. When the crook asked a passerby for money at around 7:30 pm, the passerby obliged — but handed over only a quarter.

The robber wasn’t happy with the 25 cents, so he grabbed the passerby from behind and pressed a metal object to his neck, cops say.

”Give me the money,” the mustachioed mugger said.

This time, the passerby forked over $80 and the mugger fled.

• A crazed crook in gray sweatshirt sliced a Grand Street man with a razor as he came home on March 14.

When the victim reached his building, which is between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street, at around 4:15 am, the crook forced his way in. “Give me your f—ing money,” the crook demanded, then raised his razor and slashed the victim on the left ear. The victim handed over $30 and the crook fled.

• A mugger followed a Maujer Street woman into the lobby of her building, between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street, on March 14 at around 5:20 pm. Once inside, he showed her a knife and demanded money — but when she refused, the crook punched her in the face and snatched her purse, making off with her cellphone and credit cards.
