The 23-year-old was then reunited with her phone.
Jess revealed what happened yesterday (October 4), telling their fans on Instagram: “Last night walking back from the gym alone Eve got mugged and they stole her phone.
“Been in Apple for ages today trying to get back into her accounts. Just as she was about to buy a new one, police rang saying they’ve found it.
“Guys who watched it happen chased this guy down and brought him to the police. So thankful for them.”
This terrifying encounter comes just one day after fellow Love Island star Zara McDermott revealed masked men attempted to break into her car while she was locked inside.
The 25-year-old detailed her horrifying experience in a series of videos which she shared on her Instagram Story.
She explained: "I want to talk about something quite serious that just happened to me.
"I’m feeling really shaken up about it actually. I’m feeling a bit emotional.
“I put my shopping in the boot of the car, get into the car and I lock the door straight away.
"Within a few seconds of me putting my phone down and getting ready to go, I dropped my key on the floor, so I bend down to pick it up and I look up and there are four guys surrounding my car. Most of them had balaclavas on."
She continued "It all happened so quickly but the guy on the passenger side, he had a hood up and a scarf, and was trying to open the door.
“Then I looked back, and someone was tapping on my window trying to get my attention and stop me from moving.
"I look in the rearview mirror and I think someone is trying to get in the boot and then someone appears in front of the car, basically surrounding the car."
Explaining how she managed to get herself out of the situation, Zara said: "I literally didn’t even think. I just put it into reverse, and I just put the accelerator down and just drove off.
"I just managed to get away from that situation. I’m fine but it really made me realise that one thing that I always do, always locking the car when I’m in it, imagine if I didn’t do that.
“I could have had everything stolen off me, they could have stolen the car, they could have they could have done something to me."
