Hey, remember the cyclist spotted snatching a cellphone out of a pedestrian's hands thanks to a dashboard cam video this week? He's actually a repeat cellphone thief on wheels, according to police.
The 9th Precinct in Manhattan tweeted about the suspect yesterday, noting the aforementioned robbery occurred at Avenue C and 7th Street:

Looks like the heroic CitiBike rider who tried to chase down the phone (start watching at the 24 second mark) didn't get the lady her Samsung Galaxy Note 4 back. :(
