Daylight hooligans hunt pedestrians

Two separate groups of hooligans had no qualms performing their brazen robberies in broad daylight Tuesday, cops said.

In one incident around 12:30 p.m., a 47-year-old man in the 600 block of Hyde Street was approached from behind by four white men, between the ages of 25 and 35, who pushed the victim to the ground and stole his backpack, police said. They then fled on foot.

About a half an hour later at Rudden and Delano avenues, a 17-year-old boy was approached — also from behind — by two black teenaged boys who showed the victim a gun and demanded his wallet, cops said.

The victim complied and the robbers fled on foot, police said. There have been no arrests.
