BROOKLYN -

A teen connected to a robbery and assault has turned himself in to police, officials say.

Christopher Phillips, 17, was charged with two counts of robbery.

Police say Philips and another man attacked and robbed a 63-year-old woman on Nov. 28,  while she was walking home on Mogran Avenue.

Philips acted as the lookout while his accomplice followed the woman, broke into her home and stole $40 and a cellphone before punching her in the face repeatedly.

Philips turned himself in at the 73rd Precinct Monday night.

The woman suffered a fractured eye socket and is expected to be OK.

Police are still looking for the second suspect.
