In today’s edition of the Brooklyn Paper online, the police report writes that cops are searching for two perps who attacked at least 3 victims along the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge footpaths last week. A cop source said that the victims are reporting similar descriptions of two tall young men in dark sweatshirts in each incident:

  • Manhattan Bridge path near Plymouth Street: Two perps attacked a cyclist on Nov. 4. “The perps pushed the victim off his bike at around 2:30 pm, just as one pulled out his gun and said, “Get up against the wall and give me your money.””
  • Two perps attacked another cyclist on the same path near Flatbush Avenue Extension on Nov. 5. The two perps came up behind the man, who only speaks Mandarin, and pushed him to the ground. One punched the victim in the face, while the other demanded cash and said, “Money, money, money.” The victim forked over $300.
  • Two thugs mugged a man on the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian path on Nov. 4, making off with his cellphone, iPod and briefcase. As the perps approached the man, who was nearing the Washington Street exit, one punched him in the face while the other said, “Give me your money.” The victim tried to fight, and ended up cutting his hand.
