Turns out even those of ill repute have standards. A Central Park mugger, who was armed with a gun, refused to steal his victim's cell phone since it was of the flip variety. Yes, this really happened.
Reports the New York Post:
A gun-toting mugger in Central Park was so disappointed by his victim's cheap flip phone that he handed it back.
“Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, ‘What the f–k is this?' and gave it back to me,” recalled Kevin Cook, 25, of Brooklyn.
“It's like a 3-year-old generation Windows phone,” said Cook, a New York Sports Club salesman who was walking with a pal near the West Drive in the 60s at 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
“I guess he didn't think he could get anything for it,” Cooke added. “It's kind of humorous.”
The struggle muggers--a gunman and his accomplice--got away before cops arrived.
Wait, does this still count as a robbery or nah?
