An Aurora man who lost a finger when a robber violently yanked a new iPad away from him at a Denver mall this month was grateful police caught the alleged bandit who maimed him.

"Thank God, he's off the street," said Bill Jordan, 59, of the arrest early Saturday morning of Brandon Darnell Smith, 20. "I'm doing as well as I can for a man with nine fingers."

Denver police arrested Smith at 1:14 a.m. during a traffic stop in the 3000 block of North Monaco Street, said spokesman Sonny Jackson.

Smith was being held for investigation of robbery and second-degree assault.

Jordan's left pinky finger was amputated at the first knuckle shortly after the tax-day robbery near the Cherry Creek Shopping Center's parking garage. His story was publicized across Canada and the U.S., and he has received well-wishes and cards from many people in the two countries.

Jordan said Denver Detective Brian Sides worked relentlessly to identify the suspect, including working 26 hours straight before Smith was arrested.
