CARROLL GARDENS — A dozing straphanger taking a morning nap on the F train woke up to three unknown men robbing him on the southbound line, cops say.
The 34-year-old man, who was sleeping on the train, Aug. 11 between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., had a rude awakening when the robbers held down his head and emptied his pockets, according to police.
One thief told the victim, “Relax, it will be over in a minute,” cops say.
The three men fled the train at the Smith-9th Street subway stop, taking the victim’s wallet, $200 Samsung Galaxy cellphone, $600 in cash and debit and credit cards.
No arrests have been made as yet.
