Cops are searching for a guy who they say yanked a chain from a woman’s neck aboard an F Train on Aug. 4.

When the Coney Island-bound train reached the Fort Hamilton Parkway station at 1:25 pm, the fellow grabbed his 26-year-old victim’s head and snatched her necklace, then fled the station, police said.

The suspect stands 5-feet-9, weighs about 180 pounds, and was last seen wearing a blue shirt, khaki pants, and black sneakers, according to the authorities.

Police ask those with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go to, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
