In the report, Bill Jordan said that he was attacked by two thieves soon after he had bought the device at a Denver shopping mall. He said that he was planning to give the iPad as a business gift last week.
"The next thing I know, I'm spun around. I see this kid...and he's pulling (the iPad) out of my hand," said Jordan.
He said that cord of the the device was wrapped around his finger and he couldn't let go.
"I never heard it coming, I never saw it coming. I just remember this kid pulling and pulling and pulling and it got caught and took the flesh right off, the tendons and everything. There was nothing but bone."
Jordan was immediately taken to a hospital where he was advised by the doctor to get his finger amputated.
