Some people waiting in line to buy the new iPhone 5S and 5C got a rude awakening Friday morning. They were robbed at gunpoint!
Police say close to 10 people were camping outside an AT&T store in Houston around 5 a.m. when two armed robbers got out of the car, walked up to two customers and demanded their wallets and phones.
According to HLN affiliate KHOU, one of the victims said the robber told him to give him everything he had.
“I emptied out my pocket, and he takes away my iPhone, my iPad -- because it was on the ground already. He’s like, ‘give me your wallet.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t have one -- come look.’”

No one was hurt. Customers told KHOU they got in line specifically at that store because they thought it wouldn’t be as crowded and that could be why it was targeted.
Police are looking for the robbers. They say there were stolen credit cards used at a gas station just minutes after the robbery and that could lead them to the suspects. KHOU reported security cameras in the area may have also caught the suspects on video.
