A thief snagged an iPhone from a straphanger at the Atlantic Avenue train station, but ended up dropping it during the fierce exchange on Jan. 20.

The 33-year-old was texting on his smart phone as he entered a Crown Heights-bound 4 train at 10:20 pm, giving the thief a chance to grab the phone from his hand.

The phone slipped from the thieve’s grasp, allowing the victim to retrieve it.
