GUNPOINT KNIFE ATTACK
Five crooks stabbed a 19-year-old man in a gunpoint robbery on South Street on Dec. 13.
The victim told police he was near Dover Street at 12:20 am, when the pack of thieves suddenly piled out of a black SUV, and one of them pulled a gun on him.
In an attempt to shield himself from the firearm, the young man grabbed one of his attackers to use as a human shield, but all that earned him was a blade in his shoulder after one of the crook’s accomplices atacked the victim with a knife, cops said.
The thieves then stripped the victim — literally — taking his hoodie, pants, and shoes, in addition to his $610 cellphone, according to police.
A thief stole a man’s pricey Mercier bike that he had locked on Pearl Street on Dec. 9.

Some crook nabbed valuables off a sleeping straphanger inside a subway train near Sixth Avenue and Broadway on Dec. 16.
