“The thief grabbed a 23-year-old woman as she entered a W. 106th St. building at 11:50 p.m. on Oct. 18, officials said. He slammed her against the wall and ran off with her pocketbook…Just a few hours later, at 3:30 a.m. the next morning, the thief followed a 24-year-old woman into her W. 107th St. apartment building, shoved her to the floor and ran off with her iPhone.”
