WASHINGTON, D.C. (KFGO AM) -- Many lawmakers, state Attorney's General, and other law enforcement officials nationwide have been demanding that cell phone manufacturers create "kill switches" to combat smartphone thefts across the country.

Senator Amy Klobuchar will soon introduce a bill to do just that.

She says one in three robberies in the U.S. is related to cellphones, and it has to be stopped.

Klobuchar tells the story of Andrew.

He was beaten on the head with a metal baton after a teen suspect snatched his phone from a table in a coffee shop.

He was taken to the hospital and received nine stitches to close the gash on his head.

A teenage boy and two teenagers girls have been charged with assault and are awaiting trial.
