A group of six people surrounded a 49-year-old man onboard a 7 train last week and stole his iPhone in Corona.

Four men and two women gathered around the man on the train just before 1 a.m. on March 14. One of men pushed him into a seat, while others grabbed his iPhone 12 from his pocket, police said.

The group got off the subway at Junction Boulevard and fled with the phone. Police released photos of the suspects.

The victim wasn’t injured in the theft, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The 115th precinct needs to do their jobs, which is to PROTECT and be EYES for our community. Crime has been rising in the 90s section of Jackson Heights, yet they are nowhere to be found! Instead of seeing them walk or patrol near Junction, they’re spotted at Parva drinking lattes. They also don’t respond to calls in adequate time.

Where's Little Francisco Moya?

People should protest outside of Moya’s office until either he, or is potential successor, get the hint that something needs do be done about these roving gangs, and other degenerates, that plague the 21st District. He does nothing to curb the robberies, stabbings, shootings, and rapes that happen in his district on a daily basis. The good people of Corona and Jackson Heights should not be beholden to a bunch of street thugs whose parents were also very likely thugs. This has been going on for too long. Mr. Moya, give us one good reason to vote for you when you have done absolutely NOTHING to solve these problems.
