Man steals cell phone from 4-year-old inside Florida Walmart

A man has been arrested after police say he stole a cell phone from a 4-year-old girl inside a Walmart store in Florida.

Little Angelina's father, Nelson Quiles, says he was so eager to catch the crook who stole his daughter's cell phone that he sent a text message to her number.

And the robber, Mykhal Henderson, responded.

"I was telling him he should return the phone because he stole it from a 4-year-old. He pretty much laughed in my face," said Nelson.

Additionally, Mykhal says he found the phone on the floor and was going to keep it.

Soon after, cops tracked him down through an online order he placed and arrested him at a traffic stop where he confessed.

So while Angelina will be getting her phone back, the story has a lot of people asking a lot of questions including: When should kids get phones in the first place?
