A gang of thugs grabbed a man's iPhone from his hand at the northwest corner of West Broadway and Prince Street. At 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, a man between the ages of 15 and 17 took the iPhone from the hand of the 36-year-old man. The older man approached the thief to retrieve his phone and was punched in the face by the robber, aided by six additional accomplices, also 15 to 17 years of age. All the robbers fled eastbound on Prince Street. The victim sustained numerous lacerations and contusions to his face and head. The phone's tracking software was off-line at the time of the report. Police searched the area but could not locate the gang. Video may have caught the action in front of a club on West Broadway. The stolen cell was a white iPhone 4S.
