( 4UMF NEWS ) Pregnant Woman Chases Armed Robber:
A pregnant woman walking with her 1-year-old daughter in Brooklyn chased after an armed robber who had taken her iPhone. Rachel Massey had her daughter in a stroller near McCarren Park at about 5 p.m. Tuesday when she was approached by a teenage boy with a black handgun, according to DNAinfo.com.
“He said ‘Give me your phone,’ and I said, ‘I’m sorry?’” Massey told DNAinfo.
Massey, who is four months pregnant, said that after she handed over the phone, she left her daughter with her sister and chased after the mugger.
“I know cops would have told me to let the guy go… but in the moment I was on autopilot,” she said. “Afterwards it really upset me.”
Massey describes her mugger as about 16 years old. A man in the park also chased the boy and persuaded him to give back the phone before he fled. The boy has not been found.
