According to the NYPD, an unidentified guy entered the Hotel Hashtag lobby on 98th Street on Monday at around 7:34 a.m. and asked the 34-year-old woman manning the front desk questions about the hotel and if he could use her cell phone.

The worker allegedly provided the man with the landline, but he insisted on using her smartphone, at which point he allegedly brandished a gun, grabbed her arm, and forcibly removed a ring from her finger.

Then, according to the police, he allegedly threatened to shoot her if she did not give him her iPhone 14, which he then allegedly violently took away.
