Man who stole mobile phone, Brunswick Place, EC1V 9, Hackney, London, UK

This man stole a mobile phone on a street near my home this morning. This picture was taken at 8:07AM British Summer Time, a few minutes after the theft. Can you identify him?


I was coming around the corner this morning with my daughter when I saw some friends, apparently arguing with two men. One of my friends was on the phone. I asked if they were OK and they said that this guy had stolen the other guy's phone. I told him to return the phone. He began to walk away (which is when I got the picture). The man whose phone had been stolen chased after him. My friend, meanwhile, had already phoned the police. I've already supplied them with this photo.


The crime reference number is CRIS 4620821/11

The non-emergency number for the police is 101.
