J-train justice

A thief swiped an iPhone from a woman on a Jamaica-bound J train on July 23.

The 37-year-old victim told cops that she was using her fancy smartphone on the train, but when the doors opened at the Lorimer Street stop at around 10 pm, the thief made his move.

But so did the victim, chasing down the perp with the aid of several onlookers. She eventually recovered a wallet that the thief had dropped, though he managed to escape with the expensive mobile.

Where: Metropolitan Avenue between Lorimer Street and Union Avenue
