Woman Returns Lost iPhone, Is Rewarded With Beating

The 53-year-old woman in Fredericksburg, Va. was trying to perform a good deed. She found an iPhone near a convenience store, and contacted the owner to give it back. They agreed to meet up outside of a restaurant, and the phone’s owner promised a reward. Then things went horribly wrong: according to police, the phone’s owner took the phone back, handed over the reward, then attacked her from behind while she was walking away.

Police are still looking for the suspects, a man and a woman driving a gold Honda Accord. Here’s some advice for them the next time they misplace an expensive electronic device: if you don’t want to give a reward for its successful return, it’s a lot more efficient to just not offer a reward in the first place.
