Phone swiped while texting 

A 34-year-old woman was robbed while texting in the Mission district Wednesday night, police said.

The woman was walking in the 3200 block of 24th Street around 7:30 p.m. when a 16-year-old Hispanic boy allegedly ran toward her and knocked the phone out of her hand, cops said.

The punk scooped up the phone and ran, police said.

The woman chased after the suspect and was soon joined in her pursuit by police officers, who made the arrest, cops said.
