Yesterday was not the best of days for CNN Anchor Carol Costello.

In fact it was fairly traumatic.

No Wolf Blitzer didn't make a pass at her (my God it wasn't that traumatic).

She was robbed while walking down the street in Atlanta.

Costello wrote on her Facebook page "I was robbed. And I am angry.

I was walking down a beautiful, leafy Atlanta street, talking on my IPhone. 

Guess what happened next?

Three teenagers ran up behind me. One of them grabbed my IPhone. Stupidly I struggled to hold on-to it. But, he was a big guy. And he pulled out a chunk my hair. 

I let go.

As he ran down the street, laughing, I hurled a few expletives his way.

I felt no fear at the time, I was just angry. Now I'm angry, shaken and sad. What a lousy life those kids have ahead of them. 

Turns out, according to ABC news: "cities across the country are on alert as officials warn of an uptick in stolen Apple products, dubbed “Apple picking.”

Thieves steal IPhones, wipe them clean, then sell them for up to one-thousand bucks.

So, a warning for you. Do not talk on your IPhone as you walk down the street. 

Oh, and let go of the stupid device if someone tries to steal it."
