From The New York Shitty Inbox: Robbed On Powers Street In Broad Daylight

This disturbing but fortunately non-violent incident comes courtesy of a person we’ll call “B”. He writes:

Hey Miss Heather

Turns out I am the second victim in two days of a thief on a bike stealing iPhones right out of peoples hands!!!! I chased this guy down leonard, where he zipped across grand, and slowed down enough to get onto the sidewalk and ride down grand and disappeared when he went left onto lorimer
Now, the whole time I’m screaming stop him stop him, he stole my phone. everyone in front of the williamsburg country club and that bike shop next to it stood there and did NOTHING! when I finally collapsed from sprinting, a nice woman let me call from her cell.
Cops are eager to bust this guy. They drove me around looking and then the detectives too.  At the end of the day, it’s not about the hunk of plastic, it’s about getting jacked while walking down the street. Update to readers!!! Don’t text while you walk alone. STAY ALERT. Cops say this is happening too frequently. The thieves then sell the phones to the Domincan Republic.
*BIGGEST PART OF IT!* FINDMYIPHONE APP is garbage! Once they have your phone they go to settings and turn it off. It doesn’t ask for the password when you disable the function. ATTWS was no help and they sent me to apple. EVEN THE COPS WERE PUT ON HOLD!
whatever, still amped from the experience. Just a warning that it’s still shady out there.
Be careful out there folks!
