Why the hell would anyone steal a mobile phone? It’s got to be good for about a minute and a half until the former owner cancels it and (if it’s an iPhone) totally wipes it remotely. Idiots…

They steal the mobile so the victim can’t immediately call the police and report that they were mugged, duh.

Presumably they demanded money originally, victim might not have had any on him since it wasn’t mentioned as being stolen.

hhmmm really? … That scenario appears to involve some kind of strategic, forward thinking ability – most bottom-feeders don’t live beyond the ‘here, now, what’s in it for me’ thought process.

But, one never ceases to be amazed.

^exact phrase: “stole his wallet and mobile phone”
It’s really not at all uncommon.
