New York City resident Kevin Cook was mugged at gunpoint in Central Park on Saturday, but when the thief stole Cook’s phone, he was so upset to find that it was an old flip phone that he gave it back, the New York Post reported.
“Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, ‘What the f–k is this?’ and gave it back to me,”
Cook told the paper. He described the phone in question as
“like a 3-year-old generation Windows phone.”
Thieves have rejected all sorts of less desirable cell phones. Last year, a thief held up two Columbia University students, making them hand over their cell phones, only to reject both offerings when he saw they were BlackBerrys.
