Gotcha! Stolen Phone Returned To Victim After Thief Realized It Was An Android

'Oh, that's an Android? We don't want this. I thought it was an iPhone."

There has been an ongoing battle between iPhone users and Android owners, and the fact that there’s loyalty (or disgust) amongst the users was proven again last week during an armed robbery in Washington, D.C.

According to KATV, a man was robbed of his belongings by two masked men, but when they realized the mobile unit was an Android, they promptly gave the victim back his phone.

The victim’s wife said that after she worked into the early morning hours, her husband wanted her to meet him outside of their apartment building, located in the 2400 block of 14th Street, NW, as he went to park the car. She said that after the vehicle was parked, one man, who was armed and wearing a mask, approached him. He took all the items he had in his pockets, took the keys to the vehicle, and then got in it and drove off. Another man, parked nearby in a Black BMW, also participated in the crime.

“As soon as he parked the car, two masked gentlemen came up to him, armed,” she recalled. “They robbed him, took everything he had in his pockets, took the keys to my truck, and got in and pulled off.

She alleged that one of the men, when realizing that the phone he had just taken was not an iPhone, immediately returned the Android to the robbing victim.

“They basically looked at that phone and was like, ‘Oh, that’s an Android? We don’t want this. I thought it was an iPhone,” she said.

The woman said she used the vehicle for work as an Uber Eats and Instacart driver.

“That was my income,” she said. “That was the way I made money. I did Uber Eats and Instacart, so that was our livelihood.”

The incident took place on Wednesday, Nov. 29.
