    Default Thief Rips Off Man's iPad, Finger


    A man in Denver lost most of his finger, and his iPad, as a thief snatched the device just as he was leaving the mall. The skin was torn off his finger and most of it had to be amputated because the robber ripped the bag out of his grasp with such force. Denver police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect.

    According to a Denver Police Department report, Bill Jordan, 59, had just purchased the iPad and was entering the parking garage of the Cherry Creek shopping mall with the bag "wrapped around his left hand and he was holding on tight," as he told police. The thief pulled so hard on the plastic bag that it ripped the skin completely off Jordan's left pinky down to the bone. As the paramedics who responded to the incident described it, the pinky was "degloved - the skin was peeled off." Jordan told police on the scene that he wouldn't be able to fill out a crime report right away, because he's left-handed. Doctors later amputated three-quarters of Jordan's finger.

    The victim hopes his tragedy will serve as a warning to other shoppers. "If there is any message in this," he said, it's that "it can happen anywhere at any time. This happened in broad daylight." The mall is in an affluent area, not known for violent crime. "You have to be alert at all times," Jordan warns, "especially when you're shopping for expensive items."

    Surveillance video shows an African-American man, about the age of 25 with a medium build and clean-shaven face, tearing the bag out of Jordan's hand as he went into the parking garage. In the video, he was wearing sunglasses, dark blue pants, and a long sleeved dark blue shirt, and was carrying messenger or satchel bag with a white strap. Anyone with information is asked to call Denver Police Crime Stoppers at 720 913-STOP (7867). A $2,000 reward is offered for information leading to the apprehension of the suspect.

    Hopefully this idiot is stupid enough to register it with Apple with the correct credentials. Apple in good faith should give the victim a 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G iPad for free.

    Instead of ripping the mic from Taylor Swifts hand, looks like he's stealing iPads now.

    People just needed to learn that if they want something they need to work for it just like the rest of us. People like this just make it harder for the rest of society
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    I wonder if getting half your finger ripped off amounts to "serious bodily harm" to a point that legally allows you to shoot the guy in your self defense. Thieves are scum.

    I feel bad for the guy but there's nothing he could've done to prevent that, most robbers will follow you until you slip up

    It broke today; how is that a long time ago.


    I feel sorry for this guy.

    When I bought my 27in iMac at the Apple store in the Mall of America I felt like it could have happened. It is hard to get a close parking spot there. But then again thought not like they could run fast cause those beasts are bulky in a box.
