Apple’s Covent Garden store in London was attacked by a gang of seven moped riders intending to steal iPhones & iPads, reports TheNextWeb. The incident apparently took place while a camper awaiting the iPhone 4S (Robert Shoesmith) was observing nearby.
Various news outlets are reporting that two of the bikers have already been arrested, with police actively searching for the remaining five suspects. Shoesmith, who was awakened by the incident, described it as follows:
It’s around 1.15 am and the Apple Store in Covent Garden has just been raided! Woke up to hear a load of motorbikes zoom in and then a smash and grab…looks like a lot of Mac computers have been stolen with 4 motor bikes. Police are everywhere now!
