“No, I’m not letting him walk away with my phone!” she shrieked at one point, according to a video clip posted online by the elder Harrold.
Harrold posted the 1-minute video, which can be watched above, on December 26 hours after the incident. Harrold and his son were staying at the Arlo SoHo Hotel and had come down to the lobby to eat brunch at the hotel’s restaurant.
“This person quote on quote ‘lost’ her iPhone, and apparently, my son magically acquired it, which merely ridiculous,” Harrold wrote on Instagram. “This incident went on for five more minutes, me protecting my son from this lunatic. She scratched me; she Tackled and grabbed him. He is a child!!! Now watch it again.”
In the video, the woman identified as Miya Ponsetto can be seen talking to a manager, who is carrying a laptop. Harrold Jr. can be heard telling the hotel manager, “This is my phone,” and his father then tells him, “You don’t have to explain nothing to her.”
Ponsetto asks Harrold Jr. to show her the phone and says he took her case off his iPhone to disguise it. She can be heard saying, “He took the case off, that’s mine, literally get it back please.” Harrold replies, “Are you kidding me? You feel like there’s only one iPhone made in the world?”

She was a cheerleader when she was at the school, according to photos on a photographer’s website that have now been made private. It is not clear why she was in New York City.
