According to police sources, the unidentified teen was on the A-Train approaching Beach 60 Street at 8 a.m. on Friday when he was approached by the gun thug who demanded his Samsung phone and his Dr. Dre Beats Headphones, which sell for upwards of $300, according to the product’s website.

The teen complied, giving up his cell and Beats and the thug fled the train at the next station.

Another rider, however, thought the robber looked suspicious and shot a photo of him on his cell phone.

Cops described the suspect as in his late 20s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches and 150 pounds. He was wearing a camouflage hat and a dark shirt with skull prints.
