A  group of teens savagely attacked a commuter and stole his iPhone 11 last month while riding the 6 train.

According to the police, on Sept. 15, at  5 p.m., a 55-year-old man was on the southbound 6 train at the corner of East 143 Street and Southern Boulevard, when a group of teens sat across from him. As the train pulled into the station, the man, with his iPhone 11 in his hand, got up and stood by the train doors, but as the train doors opened one of the teens stole his phone and the others began to pummel him.

The kids fled the scene and although the victim sustained pain and swelling to his face, he refused medical attention. The unknown individuals are described as follows:
