$400 Marc Jacobs Purse, iPhone 5 Swiped From SoHo Hotspot Felix, Cops Say

DOWNTOWN — A woman had her $400 Marc Jacobs purse stolen during a late night at SoHo hotspot Felix last weekend, police said.

The 31-year-old victim told police she left her bag on a chair late last Saturday night at the 340 West Broadway bar and restaurant, and when she went back to grab it about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, it was gone.

She also lost her white iPhone 5 and credit card, which were in the bag, police said.

No charges were made to the card, according to police reports. The investigation was ongoing as of Wednesday morning.

The theft was just the latest in a series of recent purse-snatchings at Downtown clubs, bars and restaurants recently, and officers at the 1st Precinct have urged residents to keep an eye on their valuables.

Other notable crimes in this week's NYPD blotter in the 1st Precinct include:

► A man shoplifted a $1,550 clutch from the shelf of SoHo boutique Etro, police said. An employee of the 89 Greene St. store discovered the handbag had been stolen last month after reviewing surveillance footage on April 4. The video shows a man taking the purse, placing into his own bag, and walking out of the high-end Italian shop, police said.

► A 32 year-old woman had her iPad stolen from Japanese restaurant Haru at 1 Wall St. on April 5. The woman told police she left her iPad on the table when she got up to pay her bill. When she returned, she said, the pricey gadget was gone.

► Two accused robbers stole $2,747 worth of diabetic test strips from a Duane Reade at 17 John St. about 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to police reports. The men swiped 19 packs of the strips, which are used to test glucose levels of diabetics, by opening up a plexiglass case with a key normally only held by Duane Reade managers, police said.
