A man armed with a black handgun reportedly robbed a woman Wednesday, stealing her smartphone before driving off near Route 58, according to a Riverhead Town police report.

The victim said she was walking on Osprey Avenue at about 7:35 p.m. when a tan sedan drove up near her, police said. A unidentified man got out of the car and “displayed a black handgun,” officials said. The robber grabbed the woman’s arm and stole her iPhone 4, according to the report.

He then got back into the car and drove off southbound, police said. The woman was not hurt in the mugging, officials said. Detectives are investigating the alleged robbery and have not made any arrests.

No other details were immediately available.
