Sleepy subway rider wakes to find bank card, phone and Apple Watch stolen
A subway rider in Gravesend woke up to his belongings missing this past October.
Police say the 20-year-old man had fallen asleep on the train around 3 a.m. on Oct. 27, but woke up as it entered the Bay 50 Street subway station.
That’s when he realized his belongings, including a bank card, were missing.
About two hours later, police say a person was seen on surveillance video using the victim’s bank card at a MetroCard vending machine at the Fordham Road subway station in the Bronx.
The victim was not hurt, but told police in addition to his bank card, his cellphone and Apple Watch were also stolen.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
