According to a CBS News report, a man had his iPad stolen at a mall in Denver and had his finger ripped off by his assailant in the process. The man was shopping in a Denver mall and picked up a new Apple iPad for a coworker who had just received a promotion. He tied the iPad bag around his hand. Apparently, two men on an escalator followed him from the mall out to the parking garage. They were caught on a surveillance video. Jordan felt a sharp pull at his arm and saw a man trying to grab his bag. The man jerked on the bag violently until the skin from the man’s hand came off and the bag was released.
The man went into shock and he was rushed to a hand surgeon; however, the report mentions that his hand is permanently damaged. The man claims that he moved his family to Colorado from New Jersey to escape the crime in New Jersey. The police are investigating the incident.
