QUEENS — Cops are searching for a man who allegedly swiped a teen's pricey Dr. Dre headphones and cellphone aboard a subway train in the Rockaways.

According to police, the suspect struck on the Manhattan-bound A train around 6 a.m. Friday, grabbing the 15-year-old victim's headphones and Samsung Galaxy phone.

But a witness earlier snapped a picture of the man before he fled at Beach 60th Street because he looked suspicious.

Police said the suspect is 25 to 30-years-old, 5-foot-7 and was armed with a black handgun.
