An alleged iPhone thief could soon get a visit from police.

It's all thanks to an app that snapped his picture and sent it to the phone's rightful owner.

Police are now trying to identify this man.

They say he stole the iPhone from a woman walking in Ozone Park, Queens on Monday night.

When he tried to unlock it, an app called "iGotcha" took his photo and e-mailed it to the victim.
