    A woman was attacked in Fredericksburg, Va., when she returned a lost iPhone to its owners, police say.

    The 53-year-old victim told officers she found an iPhone near a 7-Eleven store on Lafayette Boulevard and contacted its owners to give it back to them.

    Officials say the owner of the phone offered a reward in exchange for the return of the phone.

    The victim met the owners of the iPhone near Mr. Dee’s Restaurant on the 700 block of Lafayette Boulevard, police said.

    According to authorities, the victim gave the couple the phone and they gave her a small amount of money in return.

    The victim was walking away when the male grabbed her from behind and threw her to the ground. He took the money back and kicked her while she was still on the ground, officials say.

    The male and female iPhone owners left the area in a gold Honda Accord. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

    Anyone with information should contact authorities.
