A driver who was angry at a man for sideswiping his Chevy Camaro in Queens choked the man and stole his iPhone X before fleeing, video released by the NYPD shows.
The incident unfolded just before noon on Saturday, Aug. 1, as the Camaro was double parked in front of 30-90 Steinway Street, cops said.
A 31-year-old man, who was driving a gray SUV, attempted to pass the vehicle but ended up clipping it, cops said. The men got out of their cars and the driver of the white Camaro “demanded money from the bank,” cops said.
When the other man refused, the Camaro driver went into the SUV and took the man’s phone. The SUV driver is seen trying to get his phone back on the video, but the larger man grabs his neck and chokes him, cop said.
Police are looking for the driver of the Chevy Camaro and an accomplice who was in his vehicle.
The victim refused medical attention.
