As we search for our next Police Blotter reporter, this crazy crime news comes to us from the Brooklyn Paper:
A man fought off two knife-wielding thugs who tried to steal his iPhone on Hicks Street on Oct. 24.
The fearless would-be victim said that he was near Pineapple Street at 10 pm when one of the men held a knife to his throat and asked for his cellphone.
He responded by punching that thief in the face, prompting both men to run off.
And another (alleged) sub-human robbed another iPhone on Willow Place:
Police arrested a man who allegedly stole an iPhone at gunpoint on Willow Place on Oct. 28. The victim said he was between Joralemon and State streets at 10:45 pm when he was robbed by a gun-toting thug. Police recovered a device, and the victim said it was his missing cellphone.
Is an iPhone really a hold up at gunpoint item? Has the cult of Steve Jobs totally infected the underworld as well?
