Bill Jordan went to Denver’s Cherry Creek Apple store to buy an iPad for a co-worker as a perk for getting a promotion.
In what may be the most violent iPad theft to date, police say surveillance video shows the 59-year-old Jordan shadowed by two young men who assaulted him before he reached the parking garage.
The Apple bag was looped around his hand and the thugs jerked it several times to get it off — so hard that flesh came of Jordan’s left pinky. A surgeon later amputated part of his finger.
“It’s like a bad dream,” the left-handed Jordan told news cameras. “For a simple piece of apparatus that will be junk in a couple of years.”
No arrests have been made yet.
