  1. Was that a phone box? does he not have a phone? Police will usually tag all cell phones in that vicinity and track them down as usually one of them is the perp, if he was on a public phone then he might not have a phone so the cops are gonna have to do some old fashion leg work if no one comes forward, I wonder if they still know how to do it.
