Two thugs shot a bicyclist in the leg on Dec. 31 during a harried hold up on Prospect Place.
The 33-year-old victim was between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at 4:20 am when the thieves stopped him and demanded his cash, ring and cellphone.
The bicyclist evaded the thugs by abandoning his wheels and running into a building. But he crept back outside a few moments later to get his bike — only to come face to face with the thieves once again.
The goons shot him and took his property, leaving him with flesh wound.
