Watch your neck

A grabby grifter in the Graham Avenue L-train station tried to rip the chain from a woman’s neck on July 30.

The 22-year-old woman told cops that she saw her assailant at around 11 pm attempting to swipe through the turnstile as she entered the station, which is at Metropolitan Avenue. When she went to purchase a MetroCard, the man attacked her from behind, groping her neck in search of the chain.

The woman managed to defend her pricey accessory by holding her chin to her chest, but the thug left her with painful scratches before giving up the fight and fleeing into the darkness.

Where: Metropolitan and Graham avenues
