Schaumburg police are requesting the public's help in identifying a man who stole an iPhone at gunpoint Saturday night.

According to police, a 16-year-old Schaumburg boy was approached from behind about 10:15 p.m. on the 600 block of North Knollwood Drive. The thief displayed a small black semiautomatic handgun and demanded the victim's iPhone.
