EVG Facebook friend Wendy Slater posted this photo this morning... Here's an account of what happened... the woman in the white tank top (to the right in the photo) was walking on East 10th Street at Fourth Avenue... a man allegedly grabbed the woman's phone and ran west toward Broadway. The woman screamed and chased him. Several passersby saw what had happened, and followed in pursuit. At Broadway, several men took down the alleged phone thief. (A cyclist involved in the chase flipped over his handlebars during all this.)
In the end, the woman got her phone back ... however, it broke when the suspect hit the pavement.
