Police: Woman thrown to the ground, robbed in Sunset Park
Scary moments for one woman in Sunset Park who says she was attacked and robbed Saturday.
Police tell News 12 the victim was just standing on 4 Avenue when a young man came up and threw her to the ground.
It happened around 3:45 p.m. in front of 952 4th Ave.
The 41-year-old victim told police the young man, who they believe is around 16 or 17 years old, came up to her and knocked her to the ground. He then took her iPhone out of her hand and ran off. The woman was not hurt.
The NYPD calls the situation an unfortunate reminder that cellphones and other expensive belongings should be out of sight when walking around.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
