Crooks snatch man’s laptop, give ominous warning

A 36-year-old man was robbed of his laptop and checkbook Wednesday, cops said.

The man was walking in the 900 block of Market Street at 6 a.m. when two black men in their mid-20s approached and attacked him, police said.

One of the suspects punched the victim in the nose while the other ripped the victim’s computer bag off his shoulder, police said.

One of the brutes pulled out a handgun and said to the victim, “Don’t follow us.”

The victim refused medical treatment for his non-life-threatening injuries and no arrest has been made, cops said.
