A robbery and an attempted robbery involving cellphones were reported in Burbank over the weekend, police said.
On Friday evening, a woman was exercising in the area of Olive Avenue and Sixth Street when a man in his 20s approached and lunged at her iPhone, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
The victim struck the suspect — described as Hispanic, and wearing jeans and a sweatshirt — and started yelling. The man made a second attempt to grab her phone, but the woman hit him again.
