Grand Theft Auto V Stabbing: Three Charged
Three teenagers have been charged over the stabbing and robbery of a man who had just bought the blockbuster video game Grand Theft Auto V.
The 23-year-old victim was attacked just 80 minutes after he picked up the notoriously violent game at a midnight launch on Tuesday.
Scotland Yard said he was hit with a brick, stabbed and stripped of his mobile phone, watch and his copy of the game during the attack on Princes Avenue in Colindale, north London.
And a Metropolitan Police spokesman said three teenagers, aged 14, 15, and 17 had now been charged with robbery and grievous bodily harm with intent.
They were due to appear before magistrates in Hendon, north London, on Saturday morning.
Three other teenagers, aged 15, 17 and 18, have been released on bail until October.
It comes as it was revealed Grand Theft Auto V had sold more than $1bn (£624m) worth of copies in just three days since its global launch.
