Station break

A straphanger waiting for the F train at the Fourth Avenue station was thrown against a wall and robbed last week, police said.

The victim said that he was standing in the station just after 9 a.m. January 15 when 18-year-old James Mitchell allegedly grabbed him by the arm and forced him against the wall.

“Run your pockets,” Mitchell allegedly ordered before running off with the victim’s iPod.

Responding officers arrested Mitchell after a brief search, charging him with robbery, grand larceny, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
