Underground men

Another iThing was swiped — this time underground. But at least there was an arrest.

The victim told cops that he was listening to his iPod on the Coney Island-bound R-train platform at Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street at around 12:30 am on Jan. 28 when two men approached and one said, “Gimme the iPod — I got a machete and I got a gun.”

The victim surrendered the digital music device, and the thieves fled — but they didn’t actually leave the station, actually getting on the same train as the victim.

At 36th Street, all three men got of the train, and the victim approached his assailants. Luckily, a cop was on the platform and quickly figured out what was going on. The two men were arrested and the victim got his music back.

Where: Fourth Avenue at Ninth Street
