Police are searching for a man who they say grabbed an iPhone out of a woman’s pocket as she was walking with her baby and dog on N. Third Street on July 30.
The fellow, wearing what look like acid-washed jeans, an acid-washed hat, and a skateboarding company T-shirt, accosted the lady between Kent and Wythe avenues at 10 am, police said. The 30-year-old victim had her hands full as she was pushing her stroller and hanging onto her hound when the guy ran up behind her, reached into her front right pocket, yanked out the device, and booked it, according to a police account.
His dash was caught on surveillance camera, officers stated.
