BUSHWICK — The burgeoning night life of Wyckoff Avenue has drawn a recent rash of late-night robberies, cops said, prompting them to hold a meeting with bar-goers and business owners on the popular strip.

"We've had several incidents with intoxicated residents leaving bars late at night," said the 83rd Precinct's community affairs officer Damaryk Franco of robberies on the strip that includes popular bars Mazelle, Cobra Club and Heavy Woods.

"We're holding community outreach for residents and bar owners."

Franco did not give further details about the robberies, but she urged locals to come to the meeting next week to discuss the issue.

It will be at Latinos Americanos Unidos at 218 Wyckoff Avenue Monday at 7 p.m.
