Cellphone snatchers crack under pressure

A pair of enterprising thieves ended up in hospital and behind bars, respectively, after a standard snatch and grab went awry in the capital on Sunday. The novice ne’er-do-wells successfully stole a cellphone, but panicked during the getaway.

The botched burglary ended with their motorbike banged up against another motorist and both men in a heap on the ground. The pair was caught by police, although one was promptly sent to the hospital for treatment for some minor injuries.
