According to the Lancashire Evening Post, a teen had his jaw broken and his copy of “Grand Theft Auto IV” stolen in Leyland, in the U.K.

According to the report:

Two thugs shattered a teenager’s jaw and nose before snatching the year’s must-have computer game – Grand Theft Auto IV.

The 18-year-old and his friend were approached at the junction of Northbrook Road and Golden Hill Lane in Leyland just 30 minutes after buying the £40 video game, which was released at midnight.
The two offenders, white men aged between 18 and 20, overtook the man and his friend as they walked home and emerged from behind a hedge in front of them.
