Colorado suspect held in finger-mangling iPad theft

Denver police have arrested a man suspected of mangling a shopper's finger while stealing a brand-new iPad.

Authorities say 20-year-old Brandon Darnell Smith was arrested early Saturday in a traffic stop.

Police suspect Smith is the man who yanked the shopping bag containing the iPad from 59-year-old Bill Jordan on Thursday.

A cord from the bag was wrapped around Jordan's left hand. Doctors amputated part of Jordan's pinky finger because the flesh was stripped to the bone.

Jordan had just bought the iPad at a Denver mall.

Smith faces charges of robbery and second-degree assault. He hasn't entered a plea and it's unclear whether he has an attorney.
