NEW YORK (WABC) -- Straphangers may feel the city's subway system is a little less safe these days.
Subway crime is up 5 percent.
The increase could be age-related, as the NYPD says 15 percent of all subway crime is committed by teenagers.
The most common crimes include stealing cell phones and iPods.
Subway crime is still about 55 percent lower than it was just six years ago.
