CNN Anchor Carol Costello was robbed and her iPhone was snatched from her hand as she strolled down a street In Atlanta. Police are still investigating the crime.
Law enforcement authorities said Costello was talking on her phone while walking at around 4:30 p.m. Thursday when two teenagers ran up from behind and grabbed her phone.
Costello said in a post on her Facebook page that she struggled with one suspect as she tried to keep her phone, but he pulled out a chunk of her hair and she let go.
“As he ran down the street, laughing, I hurled a few expletives his way,” Costello wrote on her Facebook page.
“I felt no fear at the time, I was just angry,” she said. “Now I’m angry, shaken and sad. What a lousy life those kids have ahead of them.”
No arrests have been made.
Apple products are a particularly ripe target for thieves, because of their high resale value.
TV anchors are no different than anyone else when it comes to being victims of crime.
