NEW YORK (WABC) -- Two suspects are wanted in a bizarre cell phone robbery in April.

Around 3:30 p.m. on April 29, a man on the platform in the Bowling Green subway station dropped his iPhone on the tracks. He went to the booth to report it, and the suspect jumped onto the tracks to retrieve it.

When the victim asked the suspect for the phone, a second suspect punched the victim in the chest, and both suspects fled.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 800-577-TIPS.
