"He was almost sitting down on the ground, he was pulling so hard," Jordan explained. "It was still tied around my fingers, it wouldn't come off. Finally, he gave it one big jerk and that's when he stripped the skin off from my pinky and it went right down to the bone."
Jordan grabbed napkins from the food court to stop the bleeding and was rushed to the hospital, but the damage was done and part of his pinky had to be amputated. During an interview with CBS Channel 4, Jordan left the still-at-large thieves with this statement: "I hope you understand what you have done to me and to my family's life - for a simple piece of apparatus that will be junk in a couple of years."
