RIDGEWOOD — Two suspected bike-riding bandits allegedly swiped an iPhone from a 27-year-old woman earlier this month, police said.

The woman was near the corner of Broadway and Grove Street Sept. 11 when the duo rode up and allegedly snatched the gadget out of her hand at about 1:15 p.m. before pedaling away, according to cops.

The suspects are described as between the ages of 16 and 20. One was wearing a blue shirt and black shorts, while the other was wearing a black shirt and black pants.

The NYPD released surveillance photos of the pair in the hopes the public can help identify them.

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.
