oyPhone attempt

A bike-riding bandit who has stolen iPhones from gabby Slope pedestrians made another attempt at a swipe on Jan. 23, but was foiled.

Cops say that a 48-year-old woman was on Park Place between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 6:15 pm — basically the same area and time of the other iPhone swipes — when a man on a bicycle approached her from behind and made a lunge for the popular smartphone.

He didn’t get it, but witnesses briefly chased the assailant, who has been spotted before with the same M.O. The would-be thief got away.

Where: 70 Park Pl.
