The NYPD is searching for three young men who've been stealing iPhones from subway riders in Manhattan and Queens.     

Nine incidents have been reported between Dec. 16 and Feb. 8.     

One crime occurred on the "R'' train. All of the others happened on the "N'' train.

Sometimes, more than one victim was targeted on the same train.

The suspects are described as three men in their 20s ranging from 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and averaging about 195 pounds.

One of the suspects was last seen wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt, another wore a black-hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans and the third wore a black American Eagle sweatshirt, police say.
