The simple answer here is no. If the previous owner has reported it stolen, then there isn't a lot we can do. I would give it back to your friend, and get another phone.

Thats what happens when you hang around/befriend/get stuff from thieves. People who steal phones and stuff like them make me sick.

If someone stole my phone i'd hunt the f%&*er down with a machete.

I'd turn your friend into the authorities, along with the phone so they can charge him.

Make some better friends.
