A man sleeping on an E train awoke to find a woman lying under his seat, trying to steal his phone.
The suspect snatched the iPhone as the Manhattan-bound F train entered the 9th Street stop, cops said.
The victim was riding the 1 train earlier this month when the suspect swiped her phone, police said.
The men have attacked three people in the 174th-175th Streets Station in The Bronx, cops said.
The suspect flashed a fake shield and demanded the victim's phone in Penn Station, NYPD officials said.
