Five juveniles arrested in cellphone theft on Muni 

Five boys were arrested in connection with an elaborate scheme to steal one woman's cellphone Wednesday, police said.

The 24-year-old victim was on an N-Judah Muni light-rail vehicle near Folsom Street and The Embarcadero about 8:37 p.m. when a boy snatched her cellphone out of her hand and fled from the train.

The woman pursued the suspect but was tripped by a second suspect, police said.

The woman was then cornered by five people, but they were eventually arrested by responding officers.

The five suspects arrested were all youths and their identities will not be released, Sgt. Monica Macdonald said.

The woman sustained minor injuries and refused medical treatment.
