Two people were forcefully robbed and a third was beaten for no apparent reason Wednesday, police said.
Two hoodlums, aged between 15 and 10 years old, approached a 15-year-old boy at Thrift and Plymouth streets around 7:35 p.m. and pointed a gun in his chest, cops said. While one hoodlum held the gun the other grabbed the boy’s cellphone. The gun-wielding thug warned the victim against telling anyone. The thieves fled on foot.
About two hours later, a 31-year-old woman was approached from behind by a 20-year-old man at Mission Street and Avalon Avenue, cops said. The man yanked at her purse and a struggle ensued. The brute pushed the woman to the ground and fled with the purse, which contained her cellphone and wallet.
Around 11:30 p.m, four thuggish men and a woman of unknown age approached a 46-year-old man in the 2000 block of Mission Street and kicked and punched him until he fell to the ground unconscious, police said. The ruffians fled the scene before police arrived. The man was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
