A thief socked a 19-year-old straphanger during a botched iPhone robbery on April 20.

Police were told that the victim was exiting the Fort Hamilton Parkway station at 62nd Street at 3:35 pm when a 20-year-old male raced over and demanded he hand over the pricey Apple product in his hand.

The victim refused and the perp punched him in the face, leaving him with a cut lip — but he still would not relinquish his beloved phone, forcing the thief to run off empty handed.
