Phone Fiend on the Lose in the Bronx, Cops Say


A young woman has become another victim of iPhone theft — through a subway snatch-and-grab.

(But hey, at least she didn’t get shot in back over it, like this Bronx man.)

Cops say that the 26-year-old woman was on the north-bound 6-train, at the Bronx’s Whitlock Avenue stop around 8 a.m. Monday, when the creep rushed her, grabbed the smartphone, and ran.

Cops want your help finding the perp, described as a 6-foot-3, 180-pound black male, from 20 to 25-years-old. At the time of the crime, the scumbag was sporting a grey hoodie, black t-shirt, blue jeans, and a black beaded bracelet with black, red, and crystal beads on his right wrist.
