Subway chase

A crook snatched a fancy cellphone from a straphanger on Seventh Avenue on June 27.

The 25-year-old victim told cops he was leaving a subway station near Ninth Street at 5:10 am, when two men ran up to him from behind. One of the thugs reached over the victim’s right shoulder and grabbed his iPhone before they both ran away. The straphanger chased after the crooks for a few blocks — but they disappeared into the subway station.
