Man loses part of finger in iPad theft

DENVER — A man lost part of his pinky finger when a thief snatched an iPad that was in a bag tied around the man’s hand.

Fifty-nine-year-old Bill Jordan said he had just purchased Apple’s latest must-have item at a store at Denver’s Cherry Creek Mall Thursday and was near the parking garage when a thief grabbed the bag.

Jordan says the bag wouldn’t come off of his hand and the thief yanked so hard he appeared to be sitting on the ground. The thief then jerked so hard that it stripped the skin on part of Jordan’s pinky down to the bone. Doctors later amputated a portion of Jordan’s finger.

Jordan had purchased the tablet computer for a friend in Canada. Denver police were still searching for the suspect today.
