Honey Monster Involved in iPhone Robbery

The life of a street performer isn't easy these days. First the Predator gets pushed over by a very un-Schwarzenegger like thug in Birmingham City Centre, and now the Honey Monster has got himself caught up in a snatch-and-dash iTheft.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the iPhone theft, which saw a man have his smartphone stolen while taking a photo of his pals posing with the Sugar Puffs mascot outside Bath Rugby Club on Saturday evening.The theft took place at around 5.15pm, with the robber legging it after the victim and friends pursued, with the criminal eventually escaping only after lobbing the handset in a nearby river.

Reports that the blonde Chewbacca-lookalike went "monster-mad" at the scenes are as-yet unconfirmed. Anyone who may have information on the robbery is urged call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. [Bath Chronicle]
