Crook lingers on scene of his crime

This brute didn’t have much of a getaway planned.

A 40-year-old man in the hallway of a building in the 100 block of Turk Street was robbed by a  27-year-old man Wednesday at 1:28 a.m., police said.

The hooligan pushed the man to the ground and held a knife to his neck and demanded money, cops said.

The victim turned over his loot while the crook retreated to a room at the same address where he was found by the cops and arrested, police said.
