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.
