Three teens charged with Grand Theft Auto V stab robbery

Three teenagers will appear in court after being charged over the stabbing and robbery of a man just after he had bought Grand Theft Auto V in north London.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said the 23-year-old victim was also hit with a brick and stripped of several belongings as he walked home from a midnight launch of the much-anticipated computer game at Asda in Colindale in the early hours of Tuesday.

This morning three teenagers, aged 14, 15, and 17, were charged with robbery and grievous bodily harm with intent.

The spokesman said the trio will appear at Hendon Magistrates' Court this morning.

The Met confirmed three other teenagers, aged 15, 17 and 18, previously arrested in connection with this case have been bailed to return on a date in October pending further enquiries.
