HOUSTON -- iPhone campers were robbed outside an AT&T store in Houston early Friday morning.
CBS-affiliate, KHOU, reports at least two people waiting to buy the new iPhone were robbed by two armed men before 5 a.m.
One of the victims gave KHOU an account of what happened. The robbers approached him and said, "'Gimme everything you've got.' I emptied out my pocket, and he takes away my iPhone, my iPad -- because it was on the ground already," the victim said. "He's like, 'give me your wallet.' I'm like, 'I don't have one - come look.'"
The men robbed at least one other customer and then drove away, according to KHOU.
No injuries were reported.Police said stolen credit cards were used at a nearby gas station shortly after the robbery.
AT&T offered the victims store credit for the value of their stolen phones, KHOU reports.
