Things are getting so rough in the Big Apple that even toddlers are getting mugged.

A cruel thug ripped a $400 gold chain off the neck of a 3-year-old boy who was sitting in his stroller and being pushed by his mom in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law-enforcement sources said.

The crook and an accomplice attacked tot Harvey Hernandez in the lobby of his family’s Malcolm X Boulevard apartment building at 11:45 p.m. after following him, his teenage brother and mom Riyana Guerrero home from a Laundromat.

“I was screaming ‘Let go of my baby! Let go of my baby!’” the mom told The Post in Spanish yesterday.

“[The man] didn’t say anything — he just looked at us and laughed, almost mocking us.

“How could he do this to a helpless little baby!”

At 11:45pm in the apartment building’s lobby. Yup.

“‘Let go of my baby! Let go of my baby!”

Was she talking about the $400 chain or her baby?

What doesn’t this story have?

A couple of shaved apes mugging a three year old.

A three year old with a $400 gold chain.

A three year old still in a stroller.

A three year old out at 11:45 pm.

Malcolm X Boulevard.

A non-english speaker.

What more could you ask for?

That was my first reaction until I read the full article.

“The chain was a gift from Harvey’s godparents for his baptism. It has a small medallion on it with the image of hands holding a child.”

Stealing candy from babies is next on their shopping list.

The mom said her 13-year-old son was “traumatized’’ to the point where he’s afraid to go outside.

How about next time don't put a gold chain on his neck and walk him down Malcom X. Blvd. And while you're at it, turn in your EBT card.

A shining example of Obama's welfare state in all of its glory, isn't it?

At first I figured that the scumbags stole a bag of cookies from the kid.

I am not surprised that 2 thugs would steal from a 3 year old but I am shocked that the mother put a gold chain on the kid and then took him out late a night!

I generally try to avoid being seen wearing $400 gold jewelry on Malcolm X Boulevard at 11:15 PM at night. And I'm a 6'3", 200 pound guy.

Mom is allowed to vote, which is a big reason why New York is doomed. (And the entire county is probably doomed. We're really producing an idiocracy.)

How about at least reading the article before pronouncing judgment?

WTF is happening to FR these days?

Bloomberg needs to come out and tell these thugs not to go after the kids. Just like Emmanuel did in Chicago. /S

““I didn’t care about the gold; I was just worried about my [kids],” Guerrero said. “It was horrible. I don’t feel safe going out into the street now.””

Cheap lesson learned.

Family safe.

We don’t need to go Obama and make a big moulage out of this, if I may mix politics, metaphors and Barney Fife.
