Police say they have arrested a man accused of shaking down a Q-train commuter for his iPhone.
Investigators said 21-year-old Christopher Jones surrendered to authorities on July 20 after cops began distributing surveillance images of him taken shortly after the July 9 confrontation.
The victim told police that his Manhattan-bound Q was nearing the Kings Highway station at 7:40 pm when Jones, who was allegedly sitting on the bench across from him, ordered him to fork over his smart phone.
Police said Jones and a friend, who was not involved in the alleged robbery, exited the train at Kings Highway with the phone — only to be snapped up by the station’s surveillance camera.
Police charged Jones with robbery. Attempts to reach Jones’s attorney over the weekend were unsuccessful.Reach reporter Colin MIxson at cmixson@cn
