Frankie Grande viciously mugged in NYC

Recommended Posts

Ariana Grande’s big brother Frankie Grande was viciously mugged by a 13-year-old punk and another teen in Midtown Manhattan, police said Tuesday.

Frankie, a social media personality and the 39-year-old brother of the popular pop singer, was walking on Eighth Avenue between 43rd and 44th streets around 6 p.m. on Nov. 9 when he was attacked in front of the Satin Dolls Gentlemen’s Club and Sports Bar, cops said.

His muggers, a 13-year-old boy  and  male 17-year-old, smashed Frankie in the back of the head, cops said.

Police said Grande was then robbed of his Vuitton bag, which held his iPhone, AirPods, a pair of sunglasses and his wallet.

He refused medical attention at the scene.

“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers,” Frankie wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “I am so thankful to be safe and healing. Keep shining bright and stay safe out there.”

His attackers were nabbed shortly after the robbery when they tried to use the celebrity sibling’s credit card at an area smoke shop, authorities said.

The teens had an imitation pistol and a razor blade on them when arrested, police said.

The  assailants were later charged with robbery, grand larceny, unlawful use of a credit card, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing, and harassment, cops said.

Their names have not been released because of their ages.

According to a local merchant, the block, which includes the Playpen lingerie shop,  has been “scary at times” of late, with unsavory characters and “a lot of kids dealing drugs.

“Every store owner around there will tell you they have problems with the drug dealers,” the  store owner said. “It’s gotten much worse in the past couple of years.

“Everyone knows it’s the spot for drug dealers, but cops barely patrol along there anymore.”

Frankie Grande, who married fiance Hale Leon in a “Star Wars”-themed wedding in May, raised eyebrows in 2018 when he announced he was in a throuple with married couple Daniel Sinasohn and Mike Pophis.

Glad he's still alive. Hopefully he'll feel better and not have to deal with trauma.    What took me out was that they went to a smoke shop after  

Gurl needs security. I'm glad he made it out alive
