Two teens were beaten and robbed when they answered a Facebook ad for an iPhone 5, according to Nassau County Police.

Cops said an 18-year-old male and a 16-year-old male went to Jefferson Avenue in Lakeview after seeing an ad on Facebook for the sale of an iPhone 5.

When they got to the location where they were planning on buying the phone, the two were approached by six unidentified men, cops reported.

Gandhi was horrified when he heard the photo had resurfaced, and he posted a comment on the Watchdog page explaining the origin of the photo.

“I am not a model. It is embarrassing to see myself in that picture,” Gandhi, who is running for the South Washington County school board, said in a phone interview last week. [READ FULL STORY]
