MANHATTAN — Two teens were arrested Saturday after they stole a boy's iPhone at a Hell's Kitchen 18-and-under club — and then sent a selfie to their victim's mom, an NYPD spokesman said.
Khayyam Alexander, 16, and Fethi Nekrouf, 18, were partying at Stage 48, at 605 West 48th St., about 11:30 p.m. on April 17 when they swiped a 14-year-old boy's iphone, police said.
As they rode the subway away from the nightclub, they snapped a selfie that showed both of their grinning faces and sent it to the mother of the phone's owner, the NYPD said.
Investigators released the selfie to the media on Friday and the next day the duo was arrested on charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, a police spokesman said.
Alexander, of Bed-Stuy, surrendered to police. It was not immediately clear how Nekrouf, of Fort Hamilton, was apprehended, the spokesman said.
