The police say there has been a 400% annual increase in thieves on bikes and mopeds targeting people using their smartphones.

The proliferation of smartphones, with handsets worth hundreds of pounds, has been seized on by criminals, who see pedestrians as a soft target.

Miss UK recently mentioned about a man who was stabbed for his iphone. But,I am also one of them statistics who sometimes does not pay attention whilst texting or browsing the internet when walking down the street. Not paying attention & not looking around you will make you at risk of a snatcher It happened to me at a bus stop in 2005. My phone rang & when I took it out my pocket to answer it I then had someone come from the corner of my eyes & snatch my phone. He ran too fast for me Think I will now pay more attention
