Gunless Man Uses iPhone in Robbery Attempt

Heres a new twist to the old saying, Dont bring a knife to a gunfight.”

Police say a man used an iPhone as a substitute for a handgun when he tried to rob an Indian restaurant in New London, Conn., last week.

Jerome Taylor is accused of flashing his black iPhone at the restaurants cooks, and demanding cash. The cooks, who only caught a glimpse of the device, believed it to be a gun; however, instead of handing over their dough, they pulled knives on the would-be robber.

Taylor ran off and was arrested a short time later. He faces multiple charges, including attempted robbery and larceny.
