SALEM, Ore. -- A blind man who had his iPhone taken out of his hand last week at a Keizer bus stop says he's received support, including an offer of a replacement.

The Statesman Journal reports Joshua Bowen has already replaced the phone which he needs to navigate. The 29-year-old has been blind since birth and works as a teacher with the Oregon Commission for the Blind.

He teaches other blind people how to use iPhone applications. Bowen is telling anyone with smart phones they could be a target of thieves.
