Mob mentality kicked in and people began cutting the thief's clothes and hair. Her shirt in tatters, the woman covered her chest with her hands. She then said she had money problems and was pregnant.

Police arrived on the scene, and took the woman to the hospital and confirmed she was two-months pregnant. Since she did not have the stolen iPhone on her, the police did not press charges and released her.
