Siren song

A woman in cahoots with two thieves flirted with a man before the three beat him and took his iPhone on Manhattan Avenue on July 2.

The victim told cops that he left a bar near Leonard Street at about 1:30 am when he was “distracted” by the gorgeous gal. Then two hooligans pushed him from behind, punched him in the face, and took his Apple cellphone and credit cards.

Pickpocket

A quick-handed thief complimented a man before stealing his cellphone on Maspeth Avenue on June 29.

The victim told cops that he was near Morgan Avenue at about 2:45 pm when the perp approached and said, “Hey, you’ve got a nice watch.” Before he could finish saying “thank you,” the jerk thrust a hand into his pocket and grabbed the Blackberry.

Pulaski pilfer

Two ruffians threatened and robbed two pedestrians as they got on Pulaski Bridge on June 29.

The first victim got on the bridge near Manhattan Avenue and Ash Street at about 3:15 pm, when two thugs approached him with a box cutter. The “taller” of the two perps apparently ripped off the victim’s shirt, then grabbed his cash, iPhone and headphones while his knife-wielding compatriot lurked.

Another unlucky guy got on the bridge before the crime was over, and also became a victim. The jerks flashed the knife in his face and stole some more cash.

Gun-wielder

A goon with a handgun stole cash and a cellphone from late-night walker on Withers Street on June 30.

The woman told cops that she was near Woodpoint Road at about 12:30 am when the jerk came up and pointed the gun at her face. “Give me everything you have,” he said, prompting her to hand him a bag containing a cellphone and $300.

Post-bar brawl

At least four people were injured and an iPhone was stolen after a brawl on Driggs Avenue on June 30.

The two assault victims told cops that they left a bar near Russell Street at about 1:11 am, when at least two perps approached, one of them demanding that they give up their wallets. One victim refused, and got a punch in the face. The thugs started beating him to the ground — before the second victim got involved. The perps left bruised and beaten, but got away with an iPhone.

Screw off

A man with a screwdriver threatened and robbed a pedestrian on Withers Street on July 3.

The victim told cops that she was walking between Manhattan and Graham avenues at about 5:10 am when the thug approached, saying, “I’m going to stab you.” He demanded everything on her, and she provided cash, an iPod, an iPhone, medication and a wallet.
