Not even time for a game of Candy Crush

Not even time for a game of Candy Crush

A pair of teenagers were arrested in the early hours of yesterday morning after they stole an iPhone – right under the nose of patrolling police.

But a third suspect is still at large. The suspects whisked the phone from their 35-year-old victim mid-conversation at 3am.

Police said the man was leaning against a car, talking on the phone in front of a hotel, when three boys sidled up to him on their motorbike and snatched his iPhone 5.

A group of police patrolling the area witnessed the theft and gave chase. Two of the group, aged 16 and 17, were arrested, but the third escaped.
