Quick return

Two men were arrested for robbing a man on Avenue T on Dec. 19 and taking his iPhone.

The victim told police that he was inside a retail outlet near Bedford Avenue at 2:05 pm when the suspects shoved him, snagged his smartphone, and fled.

The victim gave chase, however, and managed to grab one of the suspect’s jacket. The suspect slipped out of the garment, however, but left the victim’s iPhone behind inside his coat pocket, investigators say.
