REGO PARK — A salesperson at a Woodhaven Boulevard Sprint shop did not plan on giving out any five-finger discounts last month when two men made off with a pair of iPhones, police said.

On Feb. 9 at about 12:15 p.m., the two men entered the store, near Furmanville Avenue, and were shown two of the Apple gadgets.

But the men, who were caught on surveillance video, grabbed the phones out of the salesperson’s hands and fled.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577. All calls will be kept confidential.
