D.C. Police are on the lookout for a clever robber who is snatching items right out of people's hands. Authorities say that in three separate cases, the suspect rides up to the victim on a bicycle and grabs whatever they're holding. The crimes happened Tuesday in the Georgetown and Burleith neighborhoods.

The robber has snatched a wallet and an iPhone. He also attempted to steal another iPhone from a man who chased the robber, grabbed the wheel of his bike, and caused the robber to drop the phone. The victim recovered his phone, but the robber got away.

The suspect description is very vague. He's described only as a thin, black man, aged 20-30. Anyone with information is asked to call 202-730-1903.
