(Newser) – A brazen Manhattan subway thug swiped actor Kevin Bacon's Blackberry, likely packed with phone numbers of his A-list celebrity pals, reports the New York Post. Bacon gave chase, but the thief maneuvered through the crowd at a midtown subway station to freedom. Bacon and his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, are no strangers to being crime targets. They were also stung in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.
