In some rather shocking news, three Pokémon GO players were recently robbed at gunpoint in London for their smartphones. The three people were avidly playing the popular mobile game when they were approached by three asian teenagers at Whittington Park in Holloway, London on Tuesday night. The victims succumbed to the robbers demands and handed over their smartphones. Anyone with any information can call Islington CID on 020 8345 0262 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
PC Kevin Yeung said: “These were really shocking attacks on young people walking around a much-loved park.”
Yeung appealed for witnesses, adding: “Robberies where a gun is shown or indicated are very rare and we are keen to apprehend those involved as soon as possible.”
