Bicycle picker

A thief armed with a sharp hair pick swiped a bicycle from another teen on Avenue K on July 7 — but was arrested a short time later.

The victim was riding his bike near E. 81st Street at 8:45 pm when the suspect stopped him in his tracks and slashed the victim with the pick, leaving him with a cut.

“Give me your bike or I will shoot you,” the thief threatened before taking the bike.

Cops caught up with the pedal pincher a short time later, charging him with robbery.
