The incident took place on Saturday in the lobby of Arlo Soho, an upscale, boutique hotel in New York where Harrold and his son, Keyon Harrold Jr., were guests, the hotel said.
Harrold shared a minute-long video of the encounter on social media on Sunday. In the video, the woman can be heard accosting the father and son, yelling, “Show me my phone!” A man in the video who identified himself as the hotel manager can also be heard asking to see Harrold Jr.’s phone.
“Are you kidding me? You feel like there’s only one iPhone made in the world?” Harrold said in response. Before the video cuts out, the woman appeared to approach Harrold, prompting the jazz musician to scream: “Get your hands off!” Harrold said he did not know who the woman was or how to contact her, but was told by the hotel that she was a guest at the hotel earlier in the week. He added that the hotel told him she retrieved her phone after an Uber driver recovered it later that same day.
