Two black teenagers mugged a Jewish girl and made off with her iPhone, and thanks to police ‘beat’ cops one of the suspects was apprehended a block away.
The incident occurred at around 2:30pm on Carroll Street near Brooklyn Avenue, the girl was talking on her cell phone when two black teenagers approached her from behind, snatched her phone and fled.
Shouting for help, one passerby called 911 while another called Shomrim. By the time Shomrim arrived police already had one suspect in custody a block over.
Police took the victim down to the precinct where she positively identified one of the muggers, he was then placed under arrest for grand larceny – a felony. The phone was not recovered and one suspect is still wanted.
