Three held over Grand Theft robbery

Three teenagers have been arrested after a man was stabbed and robbed of a copy of Grand Theft Auto V less than two hours after buying the game.

The 23-year-old was attacked as he made his way home from a midnight launch event in the early hours of Tuesday morning with the notoriously violent video game.

Detectives are questioning three youths - aged 15, 17 and 18 - on suspicion of robbery at a north London police station.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The motive for the attack is unclear at this stage."
