That's exactly what happens in a lot of 3rd world countries. I grew up in Manila, and literally saw a nurse student in front of me texting while walking on the sidewalk, and this guy from behind her running fast, grabbed her phone and disappeared into the pouring rain. Girl couldn't do anything, just screamed profanities.
