Apple fans camped outside an AT&T store in Houston waiting for the release of the new iPhone got an early-morning wake up call when they were robbed at gunpoint on Friday reported police.

One of the victims told KHOU 11 News the robbers walked up and started making demands.

"'Gimme everything you've got.' I emptied out my pocket, and he takes away my iPhone, my iPad -- because it was on the ground already," the victim said. "He's like, 'give me your wallet.' I'm like, 'I don't have one – come look.'"
