(Atlanta, GA) A CNN anchor let her fans know, via Facebook, she was the victim of a robbery.

Carol Costello posted she was talking on the phone while walking last Thursday when two teens ran up from behind and stole the phone.

Costello wrote on Facebook she struggled with one teen until he pulled out a chunk of her hair, “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,” she said. “Now I’m angry, shaken and sad. What a lousy life those kids have ahead of them.”

The crime, called Apple picking, has become more and more popular.
