Beggars might be not be choosers, but muggers apparently are: the Central Park robber who mugged a tourist and a Brooklyn resident in the park on Saturday morning apparently rejected one of his victims' flip phones. "Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, 'What the f-k is this?' and gave it back to me," Kevin Cook told the Post.
"It's like a 3-year-old generation Windows phone," said Cook, 25, a New York Sports Club salesman. "I guess he didn't think he could get anything for it," Cooke added. "It's kind of humorous." Cook was walking with a 24-year-old friend, who was visiting from out of town, on West 64th Street near West Drive when they were approached by two men around 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
Altogether, a leather briefcase, non-flip cell phone, debit and credit cards, a passport and $113 cash were stolen from the two men. No arrests have been made, and police say the investigation is ongoing.
