Child’s take

Cops collared a 14-year-old boy who they say swiped an iPhone 6 from a woman on a Manhattan-bound 2 or 3 train on Jan. 28.

The woman sat down on the train around 5 pm, and shortly thereafter, two teens snatched her phone and ran off, officers said.

The victim later used an app to track the phone to Grand Army Plaza, and later to Saratoga Avenue in Brownsville, where police arrested the suspected delinquent, according to a report.

Taking a sweat

A ne’er-do-well swiped a woman’s purse from the locker room of a gym on Flatbush Avenue on Feb. 1, police said.

The victim left her bag on a bench in the fitness center between Sterling Place and Carlton Avenue at noon, and when she returned for it, it had vanished, a report says.

The bag was worth $100 and contained $500 in cash, according to the authorities.
