The Hollywood star tried to chase down a thug who swiped his BlackBerry at a Seventh Avenue subway station Thursday, sources told The Post. The brazen mugger managed to escape and was at large yesterday.
Now the thief is a lot less than six degrees of separation away from a coveted cache of A-list celebrities and boldface names likely programmed into Bacon's 'Berry.
The robber boldly swiped the "Footloose" star's cell at 10:50 a.m. Thursday at the B, D and E station at 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue, sources said.
Bacon didn't give up the BlackBerry easily. The star took off after the crook, but lost track of him as he raced through the station's crowd, the sources said.
The numbers for Bacon's wife, Kyra Sedgwick -- who plays a cunning detective on the hit TV drama "The Closer" -- is no doubt stored in the phone, possibly along with dozens of other box- office stars who have graced the big screen with Bacon.
