Just a few days after a woman was robbed of her iPhone in Lawrence, police arrested a Far Rockaway teen in connection with the crime.
Kimani Jones, 18, was arrested Saturday and charged with Robbery 3rd Degree. He will be arraigned Saturday as well.
According to police, the 60-year-old woman was walking along Lawrence Avenue around 9 a.m. Wednesday when Jones allegedly approached her from behind, twisted her arm and stole her cell phone. According to police, Jones then fled in an SUV driven by a female. The victim was able to record the license plate number.
