oyPhone arrest

Two men were arrested in an attempt to steal a Brighton Beach man’s iPhone on the Q train under Park Slope on Jan. 22.

The victim told cops that he was “playing on the iPhone” on a Manhattan-bound Q train at around 12:25 pm and wasn’t paying attention as the train pulled into the Seventh Avenue station.

Just before the doors opened, a thief came out of nowhere, grabbed the phone and fled — but the victim followed him out of the car and caught him on the platform. The 23-year-old victim thought he had the upper hand until two accomplices showed up and pummeled the iPhone owner.

All three crooks fled, but two were later collared after the token booth clerk called 911.
