Day-glo ding bat caught on tape

By Dan Gesslein

BRONX, NEW YORK, AUGUST 1- The crook's sneakers may have been bright but he wasn't. Cops are looking for a pair of iPhone snatchers who were caught on tape along with their tell tale glowing sneakers.

At around 4 p.m. On July 16, the 56-year-old woman was walking down East 189th Street and Arthur Avenue when two men walked up behind her. The pair ran up to the woman and snatched the iPhone from her hand. They fled on East Fordham Road but not before being caught on surveillance video.

Both suspects are described as Hispanic males. The first suspect was seen wearing bright red sneakers, white T-shirt, black shorts and was carrying a black book bag. The other suspect was seen wearing a white T-shirt, tan shorts and black sneakers.

Anyone with information should call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS.
