A 25-year old New York City native, Kevin Cook, was mugged in Central Park. After giving his flip phone to the robbers, the disappointed mugger gave it back.

The New York Post reports, “A gun-toting mugger in Central Park was so disappointed by his victim’s cheap flip phone that he handed it back.”

Cook said, “Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, ‘What the f–k is this?’ and gave it back to me.”

He added, “It’s like a 3-year-old generation Windows phone,” said Cook, a New York Sports Club salesman who was walking with a pal near the West Drive in the 60s at 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

“I guess he didn’t think he could get anything for it,” Cooke added. “It’s kind of humorous.”

The site adds, “The gunman, who threatened to kill Cooke and his friend, was wearing a dark-green winter coat and blue jeans. His accomplice wore his long black hair in a ponytail. Both fled before cops could catch up to them.

“The theft marks the 13th robbery reported in Central Park in 2013 — the same number as last year.”
