A thief grabbed a woman’s iPod — but didn’t get her purse — on a Coney Island-bound F train on Aug. 12.

Cops say that the train pulled into the Smith-Ninth Street station at around 8 pm when the thief made his move, grabbing the iPod Touch and leaping outside of the train.

The 23-year-old victim gave chase, only to be shoved to the platform. But she held onto her purse, which the thief tried to grab. The 15-year-old, 5-foot-8 perp fled as bystanders approached.
