2 men accused of stealing phones, tablets from 6 train passengers

Two men are accused of stealing phones and tablets from subway passengers in the Bronx.



Police say the men stole the items from passengers riding the 6 train on three separate occasions.



They say in all cases, the men board the train and as it stops, they quickly snatch the victims' phones and tablets out of their hands before running away.



Police say the victims range in age from 34 to 47 years old.



The most recent case happened on Jan. 21, around 9 p.m. on the approaching 6 train headed northbound. 



Police describe the men as both being 5'8'' with medium builds.



One of the men was last seen wearing a black jacket with white patches and dark-colored jeans. The other man was wearing a black Northface jacket and blue jeans. 

 

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
