A pair of Bronx bandits beat a man for his cell phone, ambushing him as he walked home from the gym, cops said Sunday.
Police have released video of the early Feb. 4 mugging, which shows the 28-year-old victim walking near a bus stop at E. 163rd St. near Simpson St. in Foxhurst at 4:30 a.m.
One of the robbers walked alongside him and punched him in the face. The two struggled with something in the victim’s hand, and a second mugger joined the fracas, knocking their target to the ground.
The men managed to grab the victim’s phone and earphones before running west on Simpson St., cops said.
Cops describe both suspects as Hispanic men in their 20s, about 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds. One wore a black knit cap, a black jacket, a dark coloured shirt, light coloured pants and black sneakers; the other man had a black and grey sweater, blue jeans and yellow work boots.
