New York cellphone robbery suspect tripped up by sagging jeans, report says

A Brooklyn man who police say punched a woman in the face before taking her cellphone was arrested Tuesday after his loose-fitting jeans fell to his ankles, allowing police to catch up to him on a busy street, The New York Post reported.

A witness told the paper that the suspect was ‘zigzagging’ all over the place “but he couldn’t run” because his pants were falling down. The suspect, Joel Donaldson, 21, was arrested two blocks from the borough’s criminal court and charged with robbery, the report said.
