FLUSHING — A woman lost one coveted piece of Apple technology but kept another after suffering a beating from three teens earlier this month, police said.
On March 2, a 30-year-old woman was on 45th Avenue at around 1:10 p.m. when she was approached by the pack of teens, which included Steven Arenas, 16, Shaquille Mckoy, 17 and Valerie Sanchez, 16, police said.
One of the youngsters snatched the woman’s iPhone, and when she tried to get it back, the trio began to punch her in the face and then slammed her head into a car, police said.
The iCloud’s silver lining was that the woman also dropper her iPod, which she recovered before she was treated for lacerations to the face.
The three teens were charged with second-degree robbery, police said.
