Video of downtown assault highlights organization of cell phone theft


MINNEAPOLIS — A Facebook post from retired Maplewood Police Chief Scott Nadeau is drawing attention to what police say is an ongoing problem in downtown Minneapolis: cell phone thefts that lead to the draining of accounts, and sometimes result in violence.

An assault, captured on surveillance video at about 2:15 a.m. Saturday in downtown Minneapolis, begins with a man who police say is the victim of a cell phone theft confronting a group of people and trying to get it back. It ends with a punch, and the victim is knocked unconscious on the pavement.
