Terrifying comedy ensued at 1am on Tuesday morning in the heart of London, as two budding criminal masterminds used axes to smash into Apple's flagship store, before being chased off by Apple's security goons and escaping on mopeds.

Thankfully (or sadly, depending on your technological allegiance) , nothing was stolen, and following a doubtless-thrilling helicopter pursuit (only in Britain do the fuzz need a heli to chase down scooters), our two intrepid villains were arrested by the iPlod on charges of aggrevated burglary, dangerous driving, and being really really thick. The Paris Apple Store heist this was not. [The Register]
