Bronx Man Shot for iPhone
Cops want to find the two thugs who shot a Bronx resident in the back Wednesday -- after he refused to hand over his iPhone.
Police say that the 23-year-old victim was walking with a friend along West 190th street, between Aqueduct and Grand Avenues, around 6:30 p.m. when the perps accosted them, demanding the costly gadget.
When he refused, one of the scumbags took out a gun and fired, hitting the victim in the back.
The victim was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital for treatment.
The lowlifes didn't get the phone.
Cops describe the gun-slinging suspect as a 5-foot-7, 150-pound hispanic male, wearing a black hoodie, a dark Marmot jacket, blue jeans, and black boots.
They say the other wannabe robber is a 5-foot-8, 150-pound hispanic male, who sported a blue New York Yankees cap, black jacket, black pants, and brown boots.
