Teen swindled in Bronx robbery after using Facebook to sell bike: cops

A teen used Facebook to try to sell his bicycle — and was robbed by his potential buyers when they met in a Bronx subway station, according to police Wednesday.

The 17-year-old took the bike into the 167th Street D train subway station in West Concourse around 1:40 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Inside, two men walked up to the teen and asked to try out the bike –– but one of the suspects wound up snatching it from the trusting teen while the other took out a knife and stole the teen’s headphones and cellphone, according to police.

Both suspects ran out of the station –– bike, phone and headphones in hand –– on McClellan Street toward Sheridan Avenue, police said.

The victim wasn’t injured during the robbery.
