A good Samaritan stopped a teen fiend from beating another young man for his cellphone inside Park Slope’s Seventh Avenue subway station on Jan. 6, cops said.
The hapless 18-year-old victim told police the suspect tried to grab his phone while attacking him in the mezzanine of the F- and G-train station near Ninth Street at 6:30 pm.
Fortunately, the local do-gooder witnessed the assault and sprang to action, driving off the would-be robber, according to authorities.
The straphanger — along with his phone — went to Methodist hospital to be treated for an eye injury, cops said.
Officials described the suspect as 15–18-years-old, five-foot-ten-inches tall, and sporting a flat-top haircut.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
