Double trouble

A thief snatched an iPhone from a woman on Warren Street on Aug. 7 — and then another thief made his move in the ensuing confusion.

The woman told cops that she was between Smith and Hoyt streets at around 12:30 pm when the first thief swiped the fancy smartphone from her hands.

When the victim then gave chase, she dropped her purse, giving an opportunistic thug the chance to pick it up and remove $100.

The victim got a good look at the second creep, but cops were unable to catch either jerk.

Where: 327 Warren St.
