A Buffalo woman and her friend tracked down the thief who stole her cellphone while in a bar on Chippewa Street early Sunday and apprehended him with the help of police.
The woman told police she was in 67 West shortly after 3 a.m. when a man grabbed her iPhone and ran off. The woman managed to track the iPhone to the nearby Mighty Taco at 48 W. Chippewa, where she used her friend's cellphone to call her own phone.
When the phone rang, she and her friend confronted the man and flagged down police, according to the report.
Police said Nicholas L. Bowman of Choate Avenue also had stolen the woman's driver's license and bank card. He was charged with grand larceny.
