CRUSH CRIMINALS: Man tracks down stolen iPhone using location app then films violent confrontation as he takes law into his own hands

A vigilante iPhone owner has tracked down a man who allegedly stole the gadget by using a location app - and then filmed their violent confrontation.

Kenneth Schmidgall, a 26-year-old construction worker from San Diego, California, took the law into his own hands after the phone was taken at a reggae concert on December 28.

After he repeatedly called the phone to no answer, he and his friend Greg Torkelson launched an iPhone app two days later called 'Find My iPhone' to track down the device using GPS.
