Wrestling match

A thief grabbed a woman’s cellphone after winning a tug-of-war for it near the corner of Washington and Greene avenues on March 28. But the crime did not end there.

The victim of the 2:15 pm incident told cops that a man driving down the street heard her cries and got out to chase the cell snatcher. A second passerby on a bike soon joined the chase.

When the perp saw the posse pursuing him he dropped the cellphone and kept moving — but that didn’t stop his pursuers, who finally tackled him on Clinton Avenue between Lafayette and Greene avenues.

Officer Thomas Miller got the collar.

Where: 403 Washington Ave.
