Police chase down one mobile thief on the move

A 25-year-old’s phone call was rudely cut short when two suspects snatched the mobile right out of his hand in the capital’s Prampi Makara district on Wednesday.

Witnesses say the victim was sitting on his moto chatting away, and when the duo grabbed his phone and split, he cried out for police.

Luckily enough, nearby officers heard the call and chased one culprit down while his companion managed to escape.

The shiny Samsung was returned to its owner, and the 17-year-old suspect was brought to the station.
