Cops: Man who took dead woman’s phone surrenders

BOSTON (AP) – Police say a man who walked off with a woman’s cellphone after she was struck and killed by a train has turned himself in.

Transit police in Boston say the man also handed the phone over to police Friday night. They say surveillance video showed him pick it up after the woman was hit by a train at the Downtown Crossing station Thursday night.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police did not release the man’s name but say he is a 26-year-old from Brockton. They say he’s expected to be arraigned Monday on a larceny charge.

No foul play is suspected in the woman’s death.
