Chicago police with the help of some Guardian Angels and Apple’s Find My iPhone app today arrested two suspects in a Red Line robbery early Tuesday.
A woman on the Red Line after midnight Tuesday said four teenagers attacked her from behind and grabbed her iPhone, racing off the train at the Chicago stop. She encountered the Guardian Angels at Grand, and that’s when the phone hunt was on.
The NBC Chicago video explains how the Apple tracker app showed the robbers fled on a Brown Line train into the Loop. Police finally caught them and arrested two teens. Combine great police work (with Guardian Angel assist) and excellent technology, and we may put a bite bite in these CTA “apple-picking” heists.
