A New York City police officer chased a teenager down a subway platform, through a station and across the street to recover a cell phone, prompting the victim’s daughter to exclaim, ‘You guys are f****** fast!’

The unidentified officer, a NYPD veteran in his 40s, was chatting with a fellow cop inside a train when he spotted the 15-year-old running down the L-train platform at Wilson Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn, as seen on bodycam footage released Friday. 

The teenager wore a gray tank top, black joggers with red stripes and a black scarf around his head as he dashed past the officers.

That’s when the speedy officer sprung into action.

The shaky footage shows the officer running behind the alleged thief and chasing him down the yellow-lined platform.

They rush down the stairs and into the station lobby, where commuters pause in awe of the dizzying scene.

At one point, the officer hops the turnstile and lands on his hands in an effort to keep up with the darting suspect.

The chase continues outside, where the officer follows the teenager down the street and finally tackles him by the side of a building.

‘All right, all right, all right,’ the teenager says.

‘Get your a** down, turn around,’ the officer says, pushing the suspect against the ground.

The video cuts to the officer still panting four minutes later. 

‘You guys are f****** fast,’ says a woman who was bent over in exhaustion.

The woman is the daughter of the victim of the theft, according to Fox News.

Violent crime has continued to escalate in New York City, with assaults climbing 18.5 percent and robberies up six percent in September.

Data released by the NYPD on Wednesday shows crime rose 2.6 percent overall in September 2021 compared to the same month in 2020, with an extra 243 incidents reported. 

It comes as Mayor Bill de Blasio tries to lure tourists and office workers back to the COVID-ravaged Big Apple, with the data likely to deter many over personal safety concerns.
