Two creeps mugged a man at knifepoint on 96th Street after following him from the train on April 22, according to cops.

The victim told police that he was exiting the 95th Street R train station at 10:35 pm when he noticed the men were following him. When he reached his home between Third and Fourth avenues, they stopped him, flashed a knife, and demanded he hand over his MacBook, cellphone, and wallet — a value of $2,124.
