He’s keeping convenience in mind — and his gun within reach.
A trio, including one man toting a gun in a fanny pack, went on a robbery spree in Brooklyn and Manhattan over the weekend, authorities said.
The three men first grabbed a bike, iPhone 11 and wallet from a 14-year-old boy at Stillwell Avenue near Bowery Street in Coney Island around 10:20 p.m. Saturday, police said.
One of the suspects appeared to be in possession of a firearm, cops said.
They took off, and the victim was not injured.
The following morning around 5 a.m., the suspects traveled to the Park Place station in Lower Manhattan — one of them riding the first victim’s bike, authorities said.
There, the suspects approached a 28-year-old man on the northbound 2 and 3 platform and demanded his belongings, cops said.
One of the suspects said he had a gun inside his fanny pack — before the trio grabbed the victim’s iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 10XR and debit cards.
They bolted after the robbery, and the victim was unharmed.
Then, about 15 minutes later, the suspects approached a 21-year-old man who was walking on the platform to the northbound A line at the Chambers Street – World Trade Center station, police said.
One of the men allegedly opened his fanny pack and flashed a gun, warning the victim, “Don’t run or I’ll shoot you.”
The suspects demanded that the victim unlock his phone, log into his personal bank account and transfer $3,500 to an unknown account, cops said.
They then snatched his iPhone 10X and wallet, holding credit cards, and forced him to board a southbound A train with them, getting off at an unknown station in Brooklyn, police said.
There, they forced the victim to get on a northbound A train by himself, cops said.
He was not injured.
The gun-toting suspect is seen in surveillance footage with the fanny pack across his chest. He is about 30 years old with a medium complexion and heavy build, shown wearing a red and white jacket with a NASA logo on the left breast and light-colored blue jeans.
Another suspect is described as about 20 years old, with a light complexion and slim build, last seen wearing a black du-rag and a black hoodie.
The third man is around 30 years old, with a dark complexion and medium build, with black hair in dreadlocks.
