As far as iPhone theft stories go, this one is probably one of the worst we’ve heard. In South Shields, a bit outside Newcastle, England, a 22-year-old man was robbed of his iPhone 4 by two other men while laying unconscious in the street. The unconscious man died later in the night of hypothermia. The Mirror has the story, which admittedly has a strange and probably under-explained recounting of events. What seems certain is that the two thieves at one point came across the unconscious man, stole his phone out of his pocket, and left him in the street. The report says that the three men actually were together earlier in the evening and had made plans to go elsewhere later that evening, but it’s hard to say whose version of events those details are drawn from. At South Tyneside Magistrates Court earlier this month, the 19-year-old defendant admitted to theft, while the 25-year-old defendant admitted to handling stolen goods. By a district judge’s ruling, the two will be sent to Newcastle Crown Court on April 13 for sentencing.
