The iPod touch in many ways is just an iPhone without the phone. At first glance the devices look similar enough that someone could mistake one for the other.
A 12-year-old girl used this to her advantage and was able to keep herself safe from an attempted kidnapping.
Last week at around 6:10 p.m. Wednesday evening, a man driving a white van drove up to the driveway Stanton Middle School and asked a 12-year-old girl to get inside.
The girl told the man that she was calling 9-1-1 and then held here iPod touch up to her ear as if she was making a call with it.
The man, described as a white male, 35-45 years of age, with a dark crew cut styled hair, then quickly drove off afterward.
Anyone who has information relating to this incident is urged to call Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
