The unidentified victim was approached by two individuals at about 1am. One of them showed him what appeared to be a gun and they demanded his wallet and his credit card PIN numbers.
After handing over his iPhone and wallet the thieves let him run off at which point he was able to call the police. The man later used Find My iPhone to track the location of his iPhone to a Wal-Mart in North Versailles. He was able to help the police follow the individuals from the Wal-Mart to a gas station where they were finally apprehended.
Police said they recovered a black pellet gun, as well as stolen identification, credit cards and cash. They will charge Bryant Rather, 22, of West Mifflin, Brent Ray Potter, 22, of Swissvale, and Myron Knox, Jr., 22, of Homewood, with two counts each of access device fraud, conspiracy, receiving stolen property and possessing instruments of crime. Mr. Rather and Mr. Potter will also be charged with robbery.
