CNN anchor Carol Costello reported that her iPhone was snatched from her hand as she strolled down a street in Atlanta's midtown section.

Police told WSB-TV that Costello was talking on the phone while walking around 4:30 p.m. Thursday when two teenagers ran up from behind and grabbed the phone, according to The Associated Press.

Costello said in a post on her Facebook page that she struggled with one suspect as she tried to keep her phone, but he pulled out a chunk of her hair and she let go.

"As he ran down the street, laughing, I hurled a few expletives his way," Costello wrote on her Facebook page.

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

No arrests have been made.

Costello noted in her Facebook post that thefts of iPhones are on the rise:

'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, where thieves steal iPhones, wipe them clean and sell them for up to one thousand bucks."

Costello warned people not to talk on their iPhone as they walk down the street and if someone does try to steal the phone, let go.
