Student Whose Phone Was Stolen Says New Owner Can Keep It – If She Goes Out With Him


A man who had his smartphone stolen says the girl who has it can keep it – if she agrees to go on a date with him.

Swiss student Niklaus Knecht had his mobile taken by thieves after falling asleep on a train to Zurich earlier this year.

But he soon realised that the device had ended up in the hands of a young Moroccan woman, after pictures she was taking using the phone’s camera began automatically uploading to his dropbox thousands of miles away back in Switzerland.

Niklaus, 24, now says he wants to track the woman down, and has even set up a Facebook group to find her.

But if they do ever meet face-to-face, he won’t be asking for his phone back – he just wants to ask her out.

He told MailOnline: “I am really keen to find out who she is and more about her. I’d like to meet her and am prepared to travel to Morocco to see her.

“I think it would be interesting to find out how she ended up getting the phone, although I’m sure she had nothing to do with the original theft.”

Some of the woman’s photos show her relaxing at home, in the park or on the beach. Others show her posing in various outfits, or snaps of her family in traditional Moroccan dress.

One even shows her cuddling up to a teddy bear with a red heart bearing the message “I love you”.

Niklaus added: “It would be great to meet her and of course she’s welcome to keep the phone.”
