Mugger hands 'outdated' mobile phone back to victim

An armed mugger in New York's Central Park handed back a mobile phone to his victim after expressing disdain at the three-year-old flip model.

Kevin Cook, 25, has been walking with a friend on Saturday night, when they were approached by the man and an accomplice who threatened to kill them if they did not hand over their valuables.

Mr Cook told the New York Post: "Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, ‘What the f**k is this?’

"It’s like a 3-year-old generation Windows phone. I guess he didn’t think he could get anything for it, it's kind of humorous", he added.
