New Year’s Eve mug

Talk about a bad end to 2009! An 18-year-old Bay Ridge Avenue resident looking for a pre-New Years Eve celebration ended up being accosted and robbed of $60.

The victim said that he and two of his friends were walking along 10th Avenue near 66th Street at 1:44 a.m. on December 31 when a half-dozen males wearing black hoodies and ski masks approached them.

One of the males pulled a gun, demanding that he hand over his property.

Before he could respond, the thugs ripped the messenger bag off his shoulder and punched him in the face.

The thieves were last seen running off with the teen’s wallet and bag, officials said.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward.

Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (718) 439-4211. All calls will be kept confidential.
