MANHATTAN — Police have arrested a man suspected of a series of Manhattan iPhone and cash robberies, according to the NYPD.
Bruce Williams, 23, allegedly stole four iPhones and an unidentified amount of cash from May 25 until his arrest on June 3.
On May 25 at 6:30 p.m., police suspect Williams and a partner approached a man on the downtown 3 train, threatened to shoot him and demanded his iPhone before exiting at the 135th Street station.
At 9:43 a.m. on June 10, also on the downtown 3, police said Williams approached a woman and flashed a silver firearm, taking her iPhone and cash and exiting again at 135th Street.
Williams and a partner again allegedly robbed two people on June 30.
At 8:10 a.m., the two men again flashed a firearm and robbed a woman of her iPhone and cash on the uptown C train, exiting at the 72nd Street station, police said.
About two hours later, police believe Williams and another man pointed a gun at a man on the downtown 3 train, removing his iPhone and cash and fleeing the car.
And at 12:40 p.m. on July 2, police suspect Williams and a partner allegedly surrounded a man inside the 145th Street 3 train subway station, robbing the man of cash before fleeing the scene.
Williams was arrested Tuesday in connection to the C train robbery. He's charged with criminal possesion of stolen property.
