LOS ANGELES, California (KTRK) -- Police officers in Los Angeles made sure a teenager with autism had a new phone after a vicious robbery.
Robbers beat up 15-year-old Anthony and stole his phone while he was walking with his two sisters.
Over the past few days, the case officer posted about the incident on Facebook and raised $550 to buy Anthony a new phone.
"Thank you very much. I'm glad that you try your best. It was unfortunate that I was a victim of this. I hope it never happens to me again," Anthony said.
The teen also has asthma, so his phone is his lifeline to his parents.
