Gunpoint iPhone Robbery on Third Street

Officers in the Ninth Precinct are looking for these two men, suspected of robbing a woman at gunpoint on East Third Street early Wednesday morning.

The police said that around 1:30 a.m., a 19-year-old woman was walking between Avenues A and B when a man wearing a green hooded jacket, jeans, and tan sneakers grabbed her purse; meanwhile an accomplice wearing a surgical-type mask flashed a gun and removed her iPhone. The suspects, both of whom are thought to be in their early 20s, fled toward Avenue A.

As always, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477 if you have any information.
