An Apple Store in California was robbed in broad daylight, with many customers in the store at the time of robbery. Four men in hooded jackets entered the Apple Store, picked up several Apple products, and fled with what is reported to be $27,000 (roughly Rs. 18,57,000) worth of goods. The robbers managed to pick up an iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and even an iPhone X from the Store.

This incident happened this Saturday morning at the Apple Store located inside the Fashion Fair Mall in Fresno, California. ABC7 News reports that the group of men entered the store and started grabbing all the things they could grab from the display tables at the store. They managed to steal a total of 26 products from the store, worth $27,000. They took all the things they could, including many iPhones, and ran out of the store in a matter of seconds, all of this, while customers and Apple employees looked on.

The robbers managed to flee the spot, and the police think that the boys were not more than 18 years old. "One customer stood by the door to prevent them from leaving but was knocked out of the way. Right now we are looking for four, or five, we believe there was a getaway driver, black males anywhere from 16 to 18 years old. Various iPhones, the iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and 8, and even the new iPhone X was taken in this grand theft," Lt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department told the publication.
