AUBURNDALE — A Brooklyn man was accused of robbery in the first and second degrees last week after police said he stole more than 200 iPhones, according to the Queens district attorney’s office.

DA reports said Jing-Yuan Qu, 40, allegedly stole 292 iPhones from a car before fleeing the scene April 12. He was arraigned April 25 with bail set at $15,000, the DA said.

According to the DA, the victim watched as three vehicles blocked him inside a driveway in front of 42-59 157th St. before Wu and about nine others approached him. He said Wu and three others surrounded him while another unknown suspect showed a knife and another showed a hammer, the DA said.

Wu and the others then removed the iPhones from Lu’s car, the DA said, before fleeing. The unknown suspects have not been found by police, the DA said.
