Cops looking for iPhone robber who Facebook messaged his victim
Police are looking for a suspect who took an iPhone from a 15-year-old, then taunted the teen on Facebook.
According to police, on Jan. 26 around 5 p.m., two suspects approached the teenager, who was exiting a bus at the corner of Grand Concourse and East 175th Street in the Bronx.
One suspect demanded the teen’s phone, while the other displayed a knife and took his coat. Then they both fled.

That suspect is described as male, Hispanic, 17, 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds. Police released his photo.
The second suspect is described as a male Hispanic teenager.
Anyone with information should call 800-577-TIPS.
